Important information regarding tardies:

All students are required to be in their seats ready to begin the day when the bell rings at 7:45am. Any student that arrives more than 5 minutes after the bell rings is required to be signed by an adult at the front office. This helps us keep track of student's arrival times and helps parent's stay aware of their child's attendance. In addition to being a safety concern we want to make sure that all of our children are in compliance with NISD attendance policies.

Please remember to send in any notes for children's absences or tardies within 3 days of the event.

Electronic Devices

At this time, there is no educational need for our students to bring in any electronic devices. We ask that if your child has a personal cell phone that they have them turned off during school hours. Students will be reminded to turn off their devices if they have them on. However, continued use after reminders could result in the cell phone or device being taken up by a teacher. You will be notified in advance if devices are allowed.


Remind is a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps teachers share important updates and reminders with students & parents. Subscribe by text, email or using the Remind app. All personal information is kept private. Teachers will never see your phone number, nor will you see theirs. Visit to learn more.

To join Remind, simply Text to 81010 the correct unique class code. (ex. @abbotta)

Ride Changes/Absences

If you need to change the way that your child gets home, please email Mrs. Jaggars before 2:00 pm.

All emails must include child's name, homeroom teacher and date/dates the change is to be effective.

Also, if your child will be absent or was absent, please send in a note stating the reason why. You can send it directly to Mrs. Jaggars if you like.
