We are Changing!

It's hard to miss the changes in front of our school! The entry to our campus & car rider line has moved to Bear Cub Drive. Soon there will be a light at the intersection of Bear Cub and FM 2854. Please use caution when turning as the light has not been installed. All cars must enter at Bear Cub Drive and turn in at the first right. Follow the path to our parking lot. Never park on the path, as it is not wide enough for parking. This change will help keep our car rider line from backing up on FM 2854. This will be the only entryway open beginning Friday, 8/19 (Meet the Teacher).

Forms, Forms, Forms!

If you are feeling a little confused about filling out forms, please use this as a guide. It may seem like you are being asked for information in several different manners, but remember that our number one priority is keeping your children safe. We must have accurate records for your children so that we can contact you easily. Thank you so much for helping us with this important task!

Returning Students:

1. Please update your information on Parent Portal system by Wednesday, 8/17:


2. Nurse & Student Information Forms:

Please complete these online, print them out, and bring them to Meet the Teacher.


All Students:

1. Parents will receive a form regarding MISD Student Code of Conduct which must be signed and returned.

2. LSE will send home a Social Media Form which must be signed and returned if you do not want your child's picture shared on a classroom, campus, or district site (Website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).

3. Teachers may ask for further information - please return quickly.

We will have computers and forms available for you at Meet the Teacher if you are unable to complete these from your home.

We are Safe!

Parents, we are asking that after the 1st Day of School, you hug & kiss goodbye prior to entering the classroom hallways. You will not have to scan your i.d. to walk your children to this point by the library, and you can watch them walk down the hallway if you wish. Remember that students are allowed in the building at 8:00, we will call for birthdays at 8:12, and school will begin at 8:15 a.m. this year.
