Morning Drop Off/Car Rider: Our morning drop off and afternoon car rider pick up will be on Pauline St. through our school cafeteria. Staff members will be on duty to receive students until 8:50 a.m. when instruction begins. If your child arrives to campus after 8:50 a.m., parents will need to park and bring their child in to the front office to check in. If students are car riders in the afternoon, we ask that they are picked up no later than 4:10 p.m.


Meet the Teacher: Friday, August 5 (5:30-7:00). This is a come and go event for families to receive important information, meet their child's teachers, and walk the building.


Early Start begins on Thursday, August 11th. Travis will again offer early start drop off beginning at 7:45 a.m. through the cafeteria entrance on Pauline St. Staff members will be on duty beginning at 7:45 a.m. to receive students. We ask that for the safety of our students, please do not drop off prior to 7:45 a.m. as students will not be supervised.


Dropping Off Items- Please note, lunches left at home may not be dropped off. If your child forgets their lunch, they will receive a meal provided by the cafeteria.


Travis Cell Phone Policy - As stated in the district Elementary & Intermediate Student Handbook, students are allowed to have cell phones on campus. Cell phones must remain turned off during the instructional day and in the student's backpack. If students do not comply with this policy, staff members may confiscate the cell phone and turn them in to the assistant principal. A parent/guardian will need to come to the school to pick up any cell phone that has been confiscated, as it will not be returned to the student once taken up.
