September 2023

Message from the Principal

Hello Metzler Families!

It has been a WONDERFUL start to the school year! Our students are eager to learn and have been active participants in their learning. It has been so exciting to see students engaging in data driven centers and stations. I'm so proud of our AMAZING Huskies!

Our focus continues to be high quality instruction that engages students, ensuring high levels of learning so students reach their greatest potentials.

Be sure to save the date for our upcoming Fall Open House on September 7th! We would love to see you there as we partner together to give every student the best school experience.

GT Summit

Annual GT Summit

  • Saturday, September 23, 2023 9:00 AM-1:00 PM

  • EVERY family is invited to attend! Sessions will include the GT Identification Referral information, college readiness, advanced course info, and fun interactive booths from student organizations and extracurricular activities!


One of our main goals is to get your students back to you at the end of the day safely.

We are a large campus and work to get just under 900 students dismissed safely and quickly. The end of the day can get hectic, so we ask for your help, cooperation and understanding.

If your child will be going home a different way, please let the FRONT OFFICE and your child's TEACHER know right away. Telling the teacher is wonderful, but sometimes they can't check voicemail or email until after school-so your best option is always to call the school front office. (832-484-7900)

We ask that you have the call made by 2:15pm. If messages are not cleared or given in time, please know the teachers are trained to send kids home their regular way unless cleared by administration. We CANNOT take a child's word for it when it comes to leaving school safely.

Bus Information

Klein ISD uses the SMART tag ID card system to increase student safety, streamline management of students riding on school buses, and allow access to campus services via easy scans.

The SMART tag system, which consists of student ID cards with barcodes and smart readers to read the cards, allows students to check out library books via a quick scan, easily pay for lunch and breakfast with a swipe, and allow families to receive bus stop notifications when their child gets on and off the bus.
