We are in need of volunteers to assist with our morning Carline and Moveable Minutes. Carline is from 7:30-8:30 and you can simply report to the front ramp and assist. We LOVE the help!
For Moveable Minutes, each morning between 7:30-8:10, students of a particular grade are able to have some extra morning activity before school begins while their teachers meet as a team. You can assist with any grade level, but if you are interested in attending when your student is participating, the schedule is as follows:
Please remember when volunteering inside the building, you will need to check in at the front desk with your driver’s license. https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/30e0f4ba9aa23a1fa7-carline
Reporting Student Absences
To report an absence for your child, do one of the following:
- Call our attendance line at 936-709-1610 and leave a message stating your child’s name, reason for the absence, person reporting the absence, and a phone number.
- Email the registrar – firstname.lastname@example.org with your student’s absence information.
When your child returns to school, a note explaining the absence should be brought to their teacher, front office, or the attendance office.
Lost & Found
A friendly reminder to please label all of your child's belongings with first and last name. Water bottles, lunch boxes, hats, and especially outerwear such as hoodies/jackets/ sweaters are all great items to label as these items tend to pile up quickly in the Lost and Found. The Lost & Found is located in the front lobby!
Lunch Visitor Information
There will be a visitor table located in the gym/cafeteria by the bleachers. Please plan to arrive at school 5 -10 minutes before your student's lunch time. You will need to come into the front office, have your ID scanned, and receive a visitor badge. With limited seating you will only be able to have lunch with your student. Once your lunch time is complete you will walk back to the front of the building and check out in the front office. Please be sure to have your badge visible at all times. There is no need to sign-up ahead of time.

Transportation changes must be made in writing before 2:00 PM. We cannot accept transportation changes by phone. To submit a transportation change, you may send a written note to your child's teacher or provide a not to the front office with the following information:
- the date
- your child's full name
- homeroom teacher
- bus number (if applicable)
- your signature
If an emergency arises, you may send an email to email@example.com. The e-mail must include all of the above information and must be received before 2:00 PM. If you submit a transportation change by email, it must go to the email address referenced above. Teachers do not check their email regularly throughout the day, so transportation changes should not be emailed directly to the teacher. Please send a new note for each day the change occurs; we cannot accept notes for multiple days or with multiple changes. District policy states that a student may only ride the bus they are registered to ride; students may not have a transportation change to ride a different bus.
