Travis Intermediate School: January 3, 2022
Important Information for Travis Parents/Guardians
We hope all our Travis Families had a wonderful holiday break and we are so excited to see our students back on campus this week. To begin the second half of the school year, we would like to reach out to our parents/guardians and focus on some important ways we can work together for the success of our students.
If your child is a car rider in the mornings, we do need your help with our students arriving to school on time. Instruction begins at 8:50 a.m. and when students are late to class, they are missing out on valuable instruction. We have early start available to our students so they can be dropped off as early at 7:30 a.m. We ask that you make plans to have them to school by 8:45 a.m. so they are able to arrive to their classroom before instruction begins. If your child will be eating a free breakfast from our cafeteria, we ask that they arrive no later than 8:30 a.m. to ensure they have adequate time to eat before our instructional day begins.
We also encourage you to talk with your child about their classwork, homework, and grades. If you have any questions about how your child is performing, please reach out to your child’s teachers. Parents can also stay up to date on their child’s grades, attendance, tardies, and more with a Parent Access Center account. Instructions for how to set up this account is found at the bottom of this newsletter. If you have any additional questions or need assistance, please contact the school and we will be happy to assist you.
This will also be a great time to review with your child our dress code and cell phone policies included in this newsletter. Following these procedures will reduce disruptions to the learning environment caused when a student is out of dress code or not following the cell phone policy.
Happy New Year and thank you for partnering with us for the success of your child.
Dropping Off Lunches- Please note, students not eating a lunch from the cafeteria will need to bring their lunch with them when they come to school. Lunches for students may not be dropped off in the front office for your child. If your child forgets their lunch, they may receive a free lunch this year from the cafeteria.
Students Arrive to School by 8:50 a.m.: Instruction begins at 8:50 for Travis students and we need your support in helping our students be at school on time. If your child arrives to campus after 8:50 a.m., parents will need to park and bring their child in to the front office to check in, letting the front office staff know the reason for the late arrival, providing a doctor's note, etc.
Early Start: Travis will again offer early start drop off beginning at 7:30 a.m. through the cafeteria entrance on Pauline St. Staff members will be on duty beginning at 7:30 a.m. to receive students. We ask that for the safety of our students, please do not drop off prior to 7:30 a.m. as students will not be supervised.
Travis Cell Phone Policy - As stated in the district Elementary & Intermediate Student Handbook, students are allowed to have cell phones on campus. Cell phones must remain turned off during the instructional day and in the student's backpack. If students do not comply with this policy, staff members may confiscate the cell phone and turn them in to the assistant principal. A parent/guardian will need to come to the school to pick up any cell phone that has been confiscated, as it will not be returned to the student once taken up.

We begin every morning with the Resolution of Respect:
- I promise to do my best to treat everyone fairly.
- I promise to do my best to be kind to everyone—even if they are not like me.
- If I see someone being hurt or bullied, I will tell a teacher.
- I will help others to feel safe and happy at school.
- I will be part of making my school No Place for Hate®.
