Student Safety - Student Drop off

Student safety is important to us! We do not have staff members on duty to supervise the front porch area until 7:55am each day. The school building does not open in the mornings until 7:55am. Please do not drop off students in the front of the building to wait unsupervised for the building to open. We are happy to help you find out about which child care centers offer drop off to DWE. If you need a list of the ones providing transportation to DWE , please contact tinalseaman@katyisd.org or 281-237-6662.
