Important Campus Reminders

Morning Car Rider Drop-Off Procedures

  • Please keep only one line around the circle to drop-off.
  • Please refrain from parking around the circle drive. Most of the area is a fire lane and it block traffic flow.
  • Please do not drop your child off and have them walk across the circle drive and/or parking lot- it is not safe and drivers in the line are not expecting students to be walking in across traffic.

Early Dismissal

Parents, if you are picking up your child early, they must be picked up before 3:00 PM. Students will not be released after 3:00 PM and they will have to go home on their normal mode of transportation.

Cell Phone Policy Reminder

According to the Alief ISD Student Handbook Code of Conduct:

The use of Electronic Devices and/Technology Resources (EDTR) is strictly prohibited

during instructional hours, defined as the period of time from arrival on campus

through dismissal, unless the BYOD trained teacher specifically grants permission

for instructional use within the instructional setting. Students must adhere to all

campus “NO Device Zones” such as bathroom, or any other designated area on

campus… (see Alief ISD – Code of Conduct/Student Handbook for further details.)

To prevent the use of cellphones during non-instructional times, teachers will ask students to turn in their phones to be placed in a labeled zip-lock bag and placed in a locked cabinet. If a student does not want to have the teacher lock up their cell phone then the student must turn it off and put it in their backpack in the closest and the teacher will lock the closet. If/when it becomes necessary to use the device, teachers will pass out the phones and allow students to retrieve them from their backpack. However, students will not be allowed to keep their phones on them.

If a student uses his/her phone during non-instructional times or the phone rings (disrupting class/ instructional time), the phone will be taken and the parent will be contacted to retrieve the phone. There is a $15.00 fine payable in cash at the time the phone is picked up from the Assistant Principals’ Secretary’s office.

Thank you for your understanding and support of the Alief ISD policy and Budewig’s efforts to maintain optimal learning environments in every classroom.
