Dear Families:

We’re excited to announce a great resource for reading this summer: Capstone Interactive eBooks!

This summer, Capstone is providing free access to thousands of ebooks that can be read from school, home, or on-the-go. These eBooks can be used with a laptop or desktop computer or an iPad.

Best of all, Capstone Interactive eBooks provide critical supports like text-highlighting and read-aloud audio, recorded by professional voice-over artists. Plus, the easy navigation makes it inviting for your student to find their Capstone favorites: like the spunky Katie Woo, stunning photography from PebblePlus books, and thrilling reads like Library of Doom from Michael Dahl.

And you can feel comfortable knowing your student is exploring an ad-free website bursting with resources to help them read in and out of the classroom.

Changes in Transportation

Parents,

Transportation changes should be made before 3:00 PM by calling the front office at 832-484-6700.

Dojo and email are awesome and we love them for communication purposes. We do not love them for transportation changes. The teacher may be absent, or busy teaching and not receive your message in time. We appreciate your help and support in making sure all of our Patriots get home safely.

Mittelstadt School Store

Mittelstädt has a school store that is open to our students every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:45 to 8:10. We sell school supplies, spirit shirts and a variety of special fun items the kids enjoy. Stop by and check us out!

Klein ISD Policy for Birthday Celebrations at School

We enjoy celebrating all kinds of events at Mittelstadt Elementary. We welcome you to help your child celebrate his/her birthday. We appreciate your help in keeping all of our students safe by following the procedures in place. Please see the page from the student handbook related to the Klein ISD policy about providing birthday treats at school.

Custody Issues

Please assist us in the handling of custody related issues. It is the responsibility of the parents to provide the principal with a certified copy of the court order affecting any other person's right to their children. Should you have any questions, please contact Ms. Levy at clevy1@kleinisd.net

Use of Wireless Devices While Operating a Motor Vehicle

The Texas Transportation Code currently prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle within a school crossing zone. The Legislature has added a new offense to the Transportation Code that prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle on any school property with a crossing zone and while the reduced speed limit is in effect, unless the vehicle is stopped or the driver is using a hands-free device, or there is a specified emergency. This offense was added to address the problems of individuals using wireless devices while driving through school parking lots or driving lanes. This new legislation permits Klein ISD police officers to stop and cite individuals operating a motor vehicle on a school parking lot provided the vehicle is in motion at the time of the offense. This provision is in addition to the existing law enabling officers to cite drivers within a school crossing zone.

School Hours and Attendance

The tardy bell is at 8:14.

End of day dismissal is at 3:35

If your child is absent, please send a note within 5 days of his/her return to school.
