Principal's Message

Welcome back, Sundancer community! We're so glad to see everyone's shining faces back for the second semester! We have a lot to conquer so we can finish the school year strong! We also have a lot to celebrate as Tierra del Sol honors its 40th anniversary! Be on the lookout for details on a community celebration.


Please join us in thanking our YISD School Board during the month of January. These elected officials volunteer their time to ensure our students have the best opportunities to make our world a better place. They are Launching the Next Generation!

Tutoring Dismissal

Due to the volume of traffic after tutoring and club dismissal Monday-Thursday, we will follow the same procedures for the 3:30 dismissal as we do for the 2:45 dismissal starting in January. You may walk up and pick up your kinder-2nd grade child on the south side of the building. We will also have the valet open for all students if you wish to drive through. The gates will close promptly at 3:45. Please use the visitor parking lot if you will be parking and walking up for your child.
