We love our lunch visitors!

Parents were able to begin eating lunch with their child last week. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we started the new year!

All parents will show their license in order to be admitted to the cafeteria and scanned into our V-Soft system.

  • Visitors are welcome to sit with the child they came to visit only.
  • Other children are not allowed to join.
  • Adults and visitors will be asked to sit at a separate table to enjoy their time on campus.
  • Outside food is welcome to be brought for the visitor and student but may not be shared with other children.
  • Young siblings, under school age, will need to stay seated with the parent and are not allowed to run around in the cafeteria.
  • Students will be released from lunch at the appropriate time even if the visitor is late to lunch.
  • Adult visitors do not have permission to speak to other children in the cafeteria. If this is an issue, the adult will be asked to leave the campus.

If someone else is coming for lunch (grandparents, etc.) they will need to be accompanied by the parent/guardian. They cannot come in on their own even with a note from the parent.

If the parent wants to allow other visitors for their child during lunch, please inquire with the registrar, Ms. Rodriguez 281-897-4523

Can your child explain the procedures of their classroom?

Big picture
Teachers have been teaching and reteaching the procedures to set your children up for success. Each topic below is planned out specifically in each classroom. Can your child explain what they are supposed to do?

By knowing their expectations, they will be successful during the school day.

If they cannot remember, please contact your child's teacher for clarity so that you can support them at home.
