Notes from Brock Elementary:

-Reminder about having your car tag for student pick up. If you do not have a tag, you will need to park and go into the office to pick up student with proper ID.

  • -We are asking that all visitors are out of the building by 7:50. We will make announcement at 7:45 to remind everyone of the time. We are asking parents not to walk their students past the double doors after the tardy bell. If you are staying to volunteer, we ask that you check in at the office. We are doing this to ensure teachers can start classes promptly and get the school day started.
  • -We are hoping to model respect during the pledges and moment of silence. We ask for your help in this matter. If you are a visitor in the building, when the pledges begin, please stop and join us. This will help to model respect for our country to our students.
  • -The school doors will open daily at 7:15.
  • -If you need to pick your child up early from school, please get them by 2:45. This will ensure you do not get stuck in the parking lot.
  • -If you need to buckle your child in the pick-up line, please pull into one of the designated parking spots so we can keep the line moving.
  • -Please DO NOT PASS in the drop off or pick up line. This is to ensure the safety of all of our children.
  • -Cell phones are prohibited in the pick up and drop off line!

  • Parents: If you pick your child up early from school and your child rides a Day Care bus, PLEASE make sure you call the day care to let them know that your child WON'T be riding their bus.

Students are allowed to wear their BEST Texas Ranger Gear on the Field Trip! Parents, if you are attending this Field Trip, you are able to follow the buses to the Stadium. However, the buses will have to park in a different location than where you will need to park. So, when you get to the park, find a parking spot and meet all the 3rd grade classes at the First Base Gate. There you will be able to sign your child out with their teacher and go enjoy a day at the ballpark! :)
