Our Tiger Code of Conduct is very simple! We ask that all Tigers adhere to these 4 components of our Tiger Code of Conduct:
1. Be Respectful
2. Be Responsible
3. Be Safe
4. Be Ready to Learn
See attachments below for our first two Tiger Code of Conduct presentations that your student has or will receive in Advisory.
Morning Arrival to School!
Traffic will be very congested around THS in the morning, particularly early in the school year. Please plan ahead and allow yourself plenty of time to arrive safely.
Student drivers will park in the student parking lot only. It is located in the front of the building, and you must have a valid parking permit to park. All students must have parking permits purchased and displayed no later than Friday, August 23rd. At this time, only juniors and seniors may purchase parking permits. The parking application is located on the THS website.
Parents should drop off students in the front circle drive located in the front of the building. When exiting the parent drive, cars must turn right on Harlem towards West Airport.
Parents are not allowed to drop off students in the student parking lot nor the Children's Lighthouse parking lot.
Thank you in advance for adhering to the above and helping us keep our Tigers safe!
Parents are allowed to drop students off on the bus ramp after 7:10.
Boys Varsity Cross Country kicked off their season at their first meet this past Saturday!
Many Tigers took advantage of first day photo ops!
Girls Varsity Cross Country had their season opening meet on Saturday! Shout out to Katie Straub for her 11th place finish!
It's Time To Update Your Student's Information!
At this time only 32% of our parents have completed this very important task! We must hit 100%! Please take care of this ASAP. You will not have access to your child's schedule on Skyward Family Access until these forms have been completed!
The window for student verification is now open for all new and returning FBISD students. Parents must verify the contact and emergency information for all students each year! Through Family Access, parents can verify their student’s information and learn more about District resources including Child Nutrition and Extended Learning. Parents without Family Access accounts will need to contact their child’s campus for assistance.
Class of 2020 Senior Sunrise
In addition to these spirit days that will last all year long, different weeks and seasons will have their own unique theme days as well. Throughout football season, we have "Theme Day Thursdays" where students are encouraged to dress in accordance with various themes to show support for our Tigers! The photo below is all of our Theme Day Thursdays for this fall as well as our game day themes for all games that do not fall on Thursdays! Friday games will always be RED OUT! And Thursday games will always match the Theme Day Thursday! Saturday games will vary throughout the season!
Our Athletic Trainers are hard at work helping the football players beat that heat!!
Our Award Winning Travis Tiger Band kicks off the marching season with a community performance Friday night! Thanks to all that came out to support!
