Dear Andrews Family

Thank you to everyone for being so flexible and respectful of the testing that took place this week. While we normally enjoy having parent volunteers and after-school programs, we needed to make this adjustment in order to provide a secure testing environment. We immensely appreciated your help!

Please read below for information about a plethora of upcoming events and activities. We hope that you and your family have a wonderful weekend!

If you’re not able to attend that day, the $20 tickets (with unlimited drinks) are good to use on any regular operating day for the 2016 season. Plan ahead for the summer and purchase as many as you need.

Nurse's News

Please remember to stop by the clinic to pick-up your child’s medication on or before the last day of school. Medication cannot be sent home with the student. According to PISD guidelines, all medication that is not picked-up by the last day of school will be destroyed.

If you are planning to bring medication to school for next year, please remember to bring the medication in its original packaging, including the pharmacy prescription label if appropriate. Also, make sure the medication has a current expiration date.

The week before school starts, August 15th – 19th, is a good time to drop off medications, forms, and supplies.
