What to expect? ¿Que esperar?

Eagle News is a one stop shop. Where families will find events, resources, IB, and other fun facts all happening at PME. We will showcase all the hard work our scholars will produce throughout the school year. We would like to inform that some our events could change with little to no notice. PME's flyers will also be shared with you. And as always follow us on social media!

First day of school MONDAY, AUGUST 15TH!

ARRIVAL-FRONT DROP OFF

Please review our campus arrival and dismissal procedures. We look forward to a great year and thank you for your cooperation in keeping our children and building safe! As a safety precaution, we ask that families send their student with a name tag that includes their first and last name, teacher's name, and grade level for the first week of school.



  • PME’s front parking lot will be closed, parents should pull up to the front entrance of the school and remain in the car.
  • If you walk your child to school from the neighborhood, you may do so using our crosswalks.
  • If you wish to walk your child up to the HUG ZONE, please park in the bigger parking lot.
  • Please do not park in the front of school and then attempt to walk your child up
  • Doors will open at 6:55 am, students will not be allowed to enter earlier.
  • Families will be allowed to come into our HUG ZONE only.

OFFICE ASSISTANCE

We ask for your patience in the first days of school with our office procedures. If you have any questions during the first days, we will have an information center in our library, where we can assist you with registration, transportation, and with locating your student on our classlist. You may call the front office with any questions at 512-278-4225.

DISMISSAL-FRONT PICK UP

Classes will dismiss at 3:00 p.m.

Every family will receive car rider tags. These tags should be made visible to the staff on duty in the pick-up line. Please place them on your dash or attach them to your car visor. You must have your car rider tag, if not you will need to show your ID every time you pick up your child. These procedures have been established to ensure your child’s safety.


  • As cars drive up, call the scholar(s) name on the radio, assign cone color, and show parents the color of the cone they need to drive to. Parents will drive to the assigned cone and pick up their child.



We recognize that this is a change, but please know this is in the best interest of student and staff safety. We ask for your cooperation in these procedures.

WALKER PICK/WALKERS

If you prefer to walk from the neighborhood to pick up your child from school, we ask that you please bring your car rider tag. A PME staff member will take all students who walk home first to the parking lot side of the crosswalk, where you will receive them. You will not be permitted to go beyond the entry to the crosswalk at dismissal. Students who walk home independently will then be walked to the edge of the PME property by our marquee by a staff member.

ATTENDANCE MATTERS! MAKE EVERYDAY COUNT!

State law requires that a student between the ages of 6 and 19 attend school, as well as any applicable accelerated instruction program, extended year program, or tutorial session unless the student is otherwise excused from attendance or legally exempt.


State law allows exemptions to the compulsory attendance requirements for several types of absences if the student makes up all work and documentation is provided. These include the following activities and events:

● Religious holy days;

● Required court appearances;

● Activities related to obtaining U.S. citizenship;

● Documented health-care appointments for the student or a child of the student, including absences for recognized services for students diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders if the student comes to school or returns to school on the same day as the appointment. A note from the health-care provider must be submitted upon the student’s arrival or return to campus;

● For students in the conservatorship (custody) of the state To participate in an activity required under a court-ordered service plan; or any other court-ordered activity, provided it is not practicable to schedule the student’s participation in activities outside of school hours.

● As listed in Section I at Children of Military Families, an absence of up to five days will be excused for a student to visit with a parent, stepparent, or legal guardian who has been called to duty for, is on leave from, or immediately returned from certain deployments.

Watch D.O.G.S-Dads of Great Students

PME is proud to announce we will host Watch D.O.G.S on our campus this school year. We hope to reach the programs two main goals of providing positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important, and to provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.


Who are Watch D.O.G.S?

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year. WatchDOGS may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well.


If interested in participating come by the information table at Meet the Teacher or please email Noelia Guevara, Parent Liaison, noelia.guevara@manorisd.net.
