Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 1st Grade Teacher: Mrs. McBride, room 117

Welcome to our class! My name is Mrs. McBride. This is my second year

teaching at Lone Star Elementary. I am very proud to be a Longhorn! I have 3 children, Allie (19), Maggie (18) and Jake (15). Allie is starting her freshman year at UT this month! Hook em Horns!! I love spending time with my family and our pets. I also love reading, hiking, traveling and watching movies with a cozy blanket.

I am so happy that you and your family are a part of our classroom. We are going to have fun learning, exploring and making new friends! I can’t wait to meet you. I’ll see you soon!

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
