Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found

Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to a charity at the end of the semester.

Plug in with PTA and Back the Future!

Walking Track Details

Safety: Please read to ensure you are aware of the safety measures we are taking.

Parents,

In the most recent NEISD School Bond, all elementary schools were issued a walking track. The time has come for our track to be installed. I met with the construction committee yesterday, and they will start preparing the work site this Monday, May 14, 2018. Since these are STAAR testing days, we have been ensured that the first three days will be used for securing the area. We will not have relative noise that would impact the testing environment. The construction will last from May 14th until the end of June 2018. Please take note of this for any weekend or after school access to the playground/field area. The playground and basketball courts will be open on the weekend, but the field will remain an active construction zone. The walking track will be installed beside the basketball courts. After next week, you will see a black fence around the work zone. In keeping our area safe, the construction company will not have trucks moving between 7am-8am and 2pm-3:30pm. The construction company will gain access to the area from the Summerglen side of the field, where our walkers enter/exit. Please note that this area will have extra cars parked during work hours. While construction is happening, our staff members will walk all Summerglen walkers to the Summerglen Community gate. If you wish to change your child’s transportation during these last few weeks, please communicate with your child’s teacher as soon as possible. The front car rider line and/or park and pick at the back door may be options you prefer during this time.

During the weekend, we can expect that there will not be work happening. However, these days may be utilized for any additional time needed.

Again, the Tuscany Heights Elementary Field is closed starting Monday, May 14, 2018 until the end of June while the elementary track is being installed. Thank you for understanding. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the benefits of having a walking track for our PE program as well as the community will be vast.

Thank you for your understanding,

Tara Bailey
