FBISD Transportation and Travis High School

To all parents, guardians, and all who may be dropping off and picking up students. For the safety of all our students, we ask that you abide by the rules when driving at all times. In particular, please do not drive on or block our Special Services Bus Ramp. It is the half-circle driveway located near Harlem Road in the rear of Travis High School. This is a dangerous violation as we have some students that will need assistance departing and boarding a bus. We have worked out a plan with our FBISD transportation. Please be aware that cones and barriers will be put in place in order to assist. They are not there for you to drive around, nor for you to live out your dream as a stunt driver. Thank you for your assistance with this and for keeping all our students safe.

Summer Reading

Friendly reminder that staff and students will all have access to eBooks and audiobooks through Sora all summer! Access Sora through 1Link. Books in the list "Always Available" have multiuser access, meaning multiple students can check them out at once (about 150 books). Everything else can be checked out by one student at a time for two-week periods. Teachers have access also, so they can pop in there anytime to see which books are in there.

Please take time and read over the Senior Celebration information below.
