Dismissal - Car line changes

We are making a slight change to our after-school pickup line in order to alleviate some congestion on Rundell street.

Starting TODAY - Monday

We will no longer allow cars to turn left into the pick-up line.

All cars entering the pick-up area will have to make a right turn into the parking lot. See the picture for more details!

Upcoming campus drills

We have a fire drill and a lockdown drill scheduled for Wednesday, September 29th. It is important that we practice every drill to ensure students and teachers are prepared in the event of an emergency. Teachers will have a developmentally appropriate conversation about the lockdown drill to make certain students feel safe and prepared! Please review the picture for more details about each drill.

Zilker…a safe place for kids!

Another volunteer opportunity to help improve student safety!

Have you noticed that some of the intersections near our school are missing crossing guards?

Unfortunately, the City of Austin has few applicants. However, we are able to recruit volunteer crossing guards and receive training from the city. If you are already walking with your child after school and you can commit to a few extra minutes during dismissal to monitor other Zilker students as they make their way home safely, we need your help.

Please email the volunteer coordinator, Jen Pan, at with your after-school availability.

Zilker Artists Use Artsonia

Zilker has been a member of, the largest online student art museum, for 9 years!

Becoming a fan club member of your child on Artsonia is an excellent way to support your child’s creativity, share your child’s artwork with distant relatives and friends, AND fundraise for the Zilker art program. Every time you purchase a coffee mug, apron, or T-shirt with your child’s artwork on it, funds are raised for the art studio. Your participation in this website will have tremendous effects on our art program and on our children!

Need help logging in?

Visit or find it in the app store.

When your student was initially entered into Artsonia, an email was sent to you with their unique access code.

Don't have your code? Try searching "Artsonia" in your email for your student's code, and login information. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need help.

Thanks for supporting your artist and the Zilker studio!

Nurse Donations

Do you have extra clothes at home you are willing to donate? Our nurse is in need of some extra clothes of all kid sizes for use at school. When students have a spill or get dirty in some way we want to ensure we have clothes they can change into for the rest of the day. If we have extra donations, we will share with other school nurses that also have a need on campus.
