Justin Elementary 2020-21

Safety First!

There are several options for your child to get TO and FROM school. While the staff works hard to be efficient, SAFETY is the number one reason behind our arrival and dismissal routines.

- Parents can WALK students up to the school in two locations; the front entrance and up the sidewalk through the ballpark to the bike rack. Parents may not cut through the playground or up to the door at the South K-1 Entrance of the building due to traffic patterns and no crossing guard.

- Since NISD will not allow visitors inside the schools due to Covid restrictions, parents will not be able to walk children to their classrooms. JES staff members are posted in each hallway to greet students, answer questions, and help them get safely to class!

Tardy Bell - 7:40 am.

At Justin Elementary School, every classroom participates in Morning Meeting from 7:40 - 8:00 am. If your child arrives after 7:40 am. then he/she may still need time to put away their backpack, coat, lunchbox, etc. before joining the circle for Morning Meeting. Even as adults, we know that being late can be a stressful start to our day so please set routines the night before to ensure a smooth transition to school the next day.

The doors will close at 7:40 am, so if you arrive after that time, please drive up to the front of the building to drop off your child. Our counselor, Mrs. Aiduck, is a great resource if you want ideas or need help with morning routines.

No Cell Phone Use in School Zones from 7:00 am. - 4:00 pm. is strictly enforced by Justin PD.

Ride Changes - Deadline 2:00 pm.

If you need to change the way your child will be dismissed from school, contact the office by 2:00 pm. Ride changes can be made by emailing or calling 817-215-0800. The 2:00 pm. deadline is in place so that office staff have adequate time to get the changes communicated with classroom teachers before dismissal. Thank you for understanding!
