Meet the Teacher!

Dear Families,

The teachers and staff at Justin Elementary have been attending trainings, decorating classrooms, and planning lessons. We are very excited to welcome you and your children back to school!

NISD is actively reviewing enrollment numbers on every campus and teacher shifts might be necessary. **All families will be notified of their child's teacher on Monday morning.

"Meet the Teacher" is Monday, August 15 from 4:30 - 6:30 pm.

Since this event is after school hours, we will have 3 exterior doors open around the building to help you with parking. (Front door, Kinder wing (south), and back Cafeteria door (west).

Bring all of your child's school supplies on Monday night. Teachers ask that you only write student's name on personal items such as ear phones and supply box.

If your child takes medication at school, please bring those medications to Nurse Jenn Sansom in the original labeled bottles/box.

We look forward to partnering with you this year. TOGETHER we are better!

Dr. Lisa Ransleben
