Excellence in ALL we do!

Curbside iPad Return is Tuesday and Wednesday

If you checked out a district iPad for your child to use during online learning, you will be able to drop the iPad off on May 19th and 20th from 9-11 am and 4-6 pm. The return will be just like student item pick up - pull into the back parking lot off Travis Drive and hand the items off to a staff member. In addition to the iPad, please return the brick/charger and hotspot (if you received one from the district).

If you have any questions, please contact our Technology department at

Final Opportunities To Pick Up Student Items

Tuesday and Wednesday (May 19th and 20th) will be the final opportunities to pick up your child's items from school this year. We still have several unclaimed bags of materials that will be recycled if not picked up by 6:00 pm on Wednesday.

If you still need to pick up student items, pull through the back parking lot (off Travis Drive) from 9-11 am or 4-6 pm on either Tuesday or Wednesday and a staff member will place your child's items in your car.

TxConnect is Now Ascender

ASCENDER has taken over with a few changes.

  • The app for your cell phone no longer works. The company is working on creating another one.
  • Until the app is created, you must go through the district website.
  • On the Main Page, go to Parent Connection, halfway down the page on the left.
  • On new page, scroll down about halfway, look for Keeping Track of Grades. You will then click on the ASCENDER link.
  • Log in like you normally did with TxConnect.
  • If you have any questions or trouble, please call 512-267-8300 #2503.
