BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

April 14, 2019

PLEASE DO NOT DROP STUDENTS OFF ON THE STREET!

Many parents are dropping their students off on the street and then students are walking to the front of the school. We ask that you DO NOT do this. It is unsafe for your children and those driving on Ventana Lakes Parkway. The car rider has been empty as early as 8:05, and that is the safest way to deliver your student to school.


PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR OWN CHILD AND OTHERS AT RISK!


Mrs. Lowery will be personally asking parents not to block the road beginning tomorrow. Please comply with this request for the safety of all involved. The Katy ISD Police Dept will also be on-hand to help with this request.


Thank you!

Awards Schedule

The schedule for awards is in our upcoming events. We will be modifying our awards ceremony and will only be recognizing a few of our awards in the ceremony. Not all students will receive an award during the awards ceremony. Each grade level will be hosting a celebration after the awards ceremony, which is where the majority of awards will be presented. Your child's teacher will be sending more information soon.
