BUILDING A LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE

Tiger Families,


It's been a great first 2 weeks of school. We have had more growth than expected and are currently in the process of hiring additional staff to reduce some of our large class sizes. With that being said it could affect your child's schedule once we begin leveling classes. Your child will be notified by the counselor if they do get a schedule change. Thank you for your understanding as we work to ensure the best for all our students.

Car Rider Line Reminders


School personal does not need to wave you in the parking lot to start making lines.


* Please do not stop at the front of the school to drop off/pick up your child. In order to maximize the number of cars we can fit in the car rider line it is important for you to pull all the way up to the curb that is going back out to the main road.

* In the afternoon the car rider line starts to fill up early. When the cars fill up all the way to the STAR as indicated on the map begin using the Grand Oaks parking lot. This prevents cars from blocking and backing up Cypress Rosehill.

* Fill up the first row in the Grand Oaks parking lot, once that is filed proceed to the next row, then the next etc.

* As a reminder, leave the entrances to the Grand Oaks parking lots open because there are times when elementary parents are trying to get to their school to check out a student early or drop something off.

Dress Code



If you have not had a chance to visit the Student Handbook and discuss the dress code with your child, please do so. We will begin having students call home next week for a change of clothes if they are out of the dress code. If students have athletics 1st or 2nd period and come in athletic shorts that do not follow dress code, they need to wear joggers or shorts within dress code over the top.



Click Here and refer to page 50 in the Student Handbook in regards to the student dress code.

We would like to give a shout-out to four of our 8th-grade students for exhibiting strong character by helping our custodians pick up the cafeteria trash after lunch. They exhibited respect, kindness, selflessness, and responsibility. These AMAZING boys are Noah, Robert, Benjamin, and Tobey. We are proud to have you representing our Tiger family!
