1/19/20 Excellence in all we do!

The Week!

Good afternoon all! A few things about this week -


Monday, January 20 is a Student Holiday - enjoy the day!


Friday, January 24th is an Early Release Day. Students will be dismissed from school at 12:30. Friday is also our UIL Academic Competition, which will start at 1:00.

Dismissal

A few reminders about pick up after school...if your children are car riders, make sure to either go through the car line, or park across Bar K Ranch Road in the youth baseball parking lot and let your students walk to you. Do not park in the parking lot by the weight room or do not stop on Bar K and let your students get into your car.


We have over 400 students leaving after school, and these procedures are in place to help keep our students safe. If you have any questions, please let us know!
