Message from Administration

Dear Tuscany Heights Elementary Parents,

I hope that you had a wonderful weekend with your family! We look forward to greeting our student leaders tomorrow for a great week!

We appreciate all of your support with the first three weeks of school. It has been a busy one, but we certainly have enjoyed every second with our students. Thank you for choosing TUSCANY HEIGHTS!

In helping make the process a safe one, please remember the following while dropping off or picking up students:

  • In the morning, use one of these three options: car rider lane in the front, after buses/7:30am you may use the back curbside car lane, or park in the visitor parking lot and walk your child into the building using our crossing guards for safety. Dropping students off in the parking lot is not a safe practice.
  • Be sure that your car is not blocking Wilderness Oak traffic when turning left into the school.
  • Remain in the car lane behind other cars rather than pulling out of the lane. We have seen students, adults, and cars almost get hit when cars pull out of the lane. Follow the car lane all the way down and into the flow of traffic;
  • Use one of these two car rider procedures in the afternoons: the car rider lane or park & pick up in the back.
  • Parking in a Handicap Parking space is against the law.
  • 25 MPH speed Limit within the school zone and 5MPH speed limit as you enter the the school driveway/parking lot.
*The North East Police Department and Bexar County Sheriff have both had officers visit our campus this past week and served warnings and tickets for violations.

Thank you for your help! Safety comes first!

Thank you,

Tara Bailey
