PURPLE NOTE - AUGUST 20, 2020

A NOTE FROM MRS. COFFMAN

Our school year has started off wonderful! The students are eager to learn and excited to be here!


We will continue to communicate digitally this year. Please make sure to check Class Dojo, the Meadow ISD app, and Facebook for information. We want to make sure that communication remains open to both the face-to-face and online learners' parents. We are still working on making processes easier and smoother, so in this transition period, please continue to show us grace and provide encouragement to the teachers.

Attendance is critical to student success and here are a few reminders:


  1. The doors open at 7:30 am.
  2. The first bell rings at 7:40 am.
  3. The tardy bell rings at 7:45 am.
