FBISD Transportation and Travis High School

To all parents, guardians, and all who may be dropping off and picking up students. For the safety of all our students, we ask that you abide by the rules when driving at all times. In particular, please do not drive on or block our Special Services Bus Ramp. It is the half-circle driveway located near Harlem Road in the rear of Travis High School. This is a dangerous violation as we have some students that will need assistance departing and boarding a bus. We have worked out a plan with our FBISD transportation. Please be aware that cones and barriers will be put in place in order to assist. They are not there for you to drive around, nor for you to live out your dream as a stunt driver. Thank you for your assistance with this and for keeping all our students safe.

Expired student passwords

Beginning on Tuesday, November 16th, automatic emails will be sent by the District to secondary students (Grades 6th through 12th) whose passwords have expired or are going to expire within 21 days. Notifications will be sent from DoNotReply.MyFortBendISD@fortbendisd.com and will direct students to go to Skyward for Password Job Aids. Students will receive these emails daily until they have updated their passwords.

Note: For security reasons, the notifications will not include attachments or links.
