According to the charge issued by Governor Abbott on June 1, 2022, the Texas School Safety Center, in coordination with Texas Education Agency, is given authority to conduct in-person, unannounced, random intruder detection audits on school districts. The order specifies that TxSSC designated staff and/or inspectors should approach campuses to find weak points and how quickly they can penetrate buildings without being stopped. Irons Jr. High was inspected on 10/10/22, and the Inspector could not gain access to our school through an exterior door. The Inspector also checked interior doors and could not access any interior classrooms. Irons received a report of no findings, which is the highest level we can achieve as a campus. Irons will continue to conduct weekly door audits and continue to train our students and staff in our emergency procedures.

Extra Curricular Events:
We are excited that our Athletic events are in full swing. Admission is two dollars for adults and one dollar for students. You can help our gate worker by having exact change or small bills. Students may attend with a parent if the parent is staying for the entire game.
Students must purchase pre-purchase tickets on the game day during all lunches. To buy a ticket, students must be passing all classes, have not received any discipline referrals, and have only been tardy to class five or fewer times.

Student Attendance Matters:
Average daily attendance affects our funding, our campus rating, and mostly your student's academic progress. Our goal is 97%, our current campus average attendance as of today is 95.4%. Please encourage and ensure your student attends school daily.
