Dear Families,

The Klein ISD Counseling & Whole Student Wellness team has put together resources for families about how to support their child(ren) at home regarding behavior, emotions, and tough conversations. Please visit their site here to access these helpful resources. Our campus and community partners are available to help with school supplies, food, or back-to-school clothing needs you may have. Please contact me directly at 832-484-5933 or if you need assistance with any of these items.To locate food pick-up times at the Champion Forest Baptist Church Community Center, please click here.

Transportation Reminders

***Car Rider Arrival*** (Please see map below.)

If your child will be a car rider in the morning please read the following information:

  • Our arrival will only have one single file drop-off line. Please do not attempt to pass anyone in front of you as this is not a safe practice in the morning for our students.

  • Also, please do not drop your students off if they are not where the sidewalk begins. This will not make the process go faster, it will just be another unsafe practice for students (Safety is our #1 priority).

  • Please be sure to come through the car rider line by entering on Kuykendahl Forest Drive next to the Burger King.

  • All adults must stay in their cars while dropping off students. They are not allowed to walk their child to the classroom.

***Car Rider Dismissal*** (Please see map below.)

If your child will be a car rider in the afternoon please read the following information:

  • If you are at the front of the line where students are being brought to their cars, please do not drive off until our stop sign person gives you the ok. This is for the safety of our students moving through the lines to be placed in their cars.

  • During dismissal, if you have a car rider number already, please have it hanging in your windshield (not on the dash) and have it visible throughout the car rider process. Please do not take it down until we get your child(ren) safely to your car.

  • Please have car numbers for all you are picking up. If you do not have the car number issued by the front office, you will have to park and wait until the line is cleared.

  • If you have not received your new car rider number please contact the front office before dismissal.

  • It is extremely important that your child is aware of their car rider number. Please place their car number on their backpack and leave it there so we can expedite our car rider process to the best of our ability.

***Bus Riders***

  • Here is the LINK to the Bus Station Dashboard so you can track your child(ren)'s bus in the morning and in the afternoon.

  • We encourage parents with children in grades K-2nd to be at the bus stop or have a responsible adult meet the bus in the afternoon. This assures the bus driver that your child is in safe hands. If no one is available for this purpose, please notify the bus driver that your child can be dropped off unattended.
