First Day of School August 9th

Irons Family,

It was great to meet many new students and catch up with our returning students earlier this week. I know the Irons staff is excited for our students to return on August 9th!! Schedules are now available in Parent Access Center. The Irons counseling team has been working non-stop to level classes to create the best learning environment possible before the classes start. Still, schedules could change before or during the first week of school as we continue the process of leveling classes.

On the first day of school, Wednesday, August 9th, the building will open to students at 7:45. Parents will not be allowed to walk students to class for the safety of all students and staff. We will have staff available to assist all students in navigating the building. As students arrive on campus, all students will pick up a new schedule printed on colored paper in the cafeteria and then report to the Homeroom class, which will be printed on the top of the new schedule.

Students will then attend all seven class periods on a modified bell schedule. The modified schedule will allow students time to review aspects of the student code of conduct, classroom expectations, how they will go home the first day, how lunch procedures will work, and getting-to-know-you activities. Please remind your student how they will go home on the first day of school.

I also encourage you to log in to parent access, look up your child's bus number and pick-up and drop-off times, and then review that information with your child. Please remember that CISD buses will pick up every student at a morning stop, but students must be registered for bus transportation to ride a bus home in the afternoon.

To receive notifications about your child's bus, including departure and bus stop arrival times, sign up for the SMART tag™ Parent portal at

You can locate bus information on the CISD website at

If you pre-purchased school supplies and could not pick them up on a scheduled pick-up day, we will distribute them to your child during the first few days of school.

Please remember that traffic will be very slow the first week or two of school as we all return to school routines. You can expect buses to run late in the morning and afternoon for the first two weeks of school. Please be patient as transportation adjusts to traffic patterns in the area.

We will only allow deliveries from parents and family members. We cannot accept food deliveries from companies like Uber Eats, Grubhub, etc.

Open House is scheduled for Wednesday, August 23rd, from 6:00-8:00. Open House will be a come-and-go event to meet teachers and view classrooms.

Lastly, all students must wear their smart tag ID while at school.

All 8th-grade students should use the tag from 7th grade.

Our 7th-grade students will receive a new smart tag ID this school year.

I look forward to an exciting, safe, and successful school year! I am ready to see all our students back on campus Wednesday!!
