Principal's Message:

We can not believe it has been a week already in the month of February! Your students are gearing up each day on academics! Continue to ask your students what they are learning at school to help them and you connect. The middle school ages can be difficult for our students, but they are not alone and we together can support them to have positive experiences. We will see you tomorrow, February 7th.

Please do not hesitate to reach us:

Austin's Water boil Notice:

The city of Austin issued its water boil notice Saturday evening because of a malfunction at the Ullrich Water Treatment Plant.

  • Under such a notice, you should boil water for at least 2 minutes then let it cool before drinking.

  • Residents are also asked to conserve water.

We’re asking Austin ISD students and staff to bring bottles of cooled, boiled water to school on Monday as the city is under a boil water notice.

  • All Water Fountains will be closed and covered on campus
  • Water may be used for handwashing and toileting purposes
  • Please continue to send your child(ren) to school with safe drinking water that is bottled or has been boiled
  • The cafeteria/kitchen staff will be prepared with boiled water for food preparation

Thank you for supporting your student and us during this time and look forward to seeing our students February 7th.
