Proof of Residency for 2018/19

Have you provided us with a POR yet?

MISD requires that all students present a proof of residency (POR) document to the school each year. Willie Brown students are required to provide a current POR before receiving their class assignment in August.

WHAT is a POR document? A GAS, WATER, or ELECTRICITY bill for the address of residency with a SERVICE DATE of MAY 2018 or later.

WHEN can a POR be given to the campus? WBE will accept POR's NOW through August. Please ensure that the service date is May or later and write the name of your student(s) and 18/19 grade level(s) on the document. If your child will be attending a school other than WBE next year, you will need to take the POR to that campus.

NEW Dismissal Procedures!

***NEW, NEW, NEW****

Safety of our students is a priority for all of us. We needed to update our procedures in order to provide the safest environment possible. Please read the 2018-2019 Arrival & Dismissal Procedures.

Highlights are:

1. Any person picking up a student at the end of the day MUST have the school provided pick-up sign to display. Anyone who does not have this sign will have to go to the office to check out your student. Pick-up signs will be distributed at Meet the Teacher.

2. The pick-up car line is now DOUBLE LANE!

We fully expect there to be questions and patience needed from all as we implement these new procedures.

Bus Rider Policies

Bus riders will receive a bus tag from their classroom teacher on the first day of school. ALL students are required to wear their bus tag the first few weeks of school.

MISD requires that all PreK, Kinder, and 1st grade students wear an official MISD Bus Tag when riding the bus. Please help us to ensure that your student has their tag daily.

MISD Student Dress Code Revisions

This spring, MISD formed a committee of teachers, administrators, and students to revise the student dress code. The attached dress code has been revised and will be included in the 2018-2019 Student Handbook. I'm hoping this is helpful information for parents to have when back to school shopping!
