The School Day
Instructional time begins at 8:00 a.m. daily. The tardy bell rings at 8:05 a.m. After 8:05 students are required to sign-in at the front office. The main entrance to the school is unlocked at 7:15 a.m. Students arriving between 7:15-7:45 should go to the cafeteria to eat breakfast or go to the gym until the duty teacher takes them to their classrooms. Teachers will open their classroom doors no later than 7:45 a.m.
In the interest of student safety, the doors will remain locked during school hours. Access is permitted through the front only. All volunteers and visitors must sign-in and wear a badge during school hours. Please have your driver’s license available when signing in.
For the safety of our students, parents will not be allowed after the 2nd week of school to walk their students to their class. Staff will be available to monitor and assist students.
All students should be dropped off in the mornings in the front drive. Staff will be on duty and doors opened at 7:15 a.m. Students should not be dropped off before this time.
Afternoon Transportation and Dismissal
All pick-up students will be dismissed at 3:05 p.m. to the front of the school where they will wait until their car pulls up in line. Teachers will monitor students in the pick-up line. Please be patient and do not pull out of line to go around another car.
Students riding KISD transportation must have a bus card on file with the transportation office. Bus cards will be provided at registration or from the school office. Students are only allowed to ride one afternoon bus. If your child is unable to ride their assigned afternoon bus, they will need to be picked up.
****If there is a change in your child’s transportation on a particular day, your child MUST bring a note. A change can also be faxed to the school at 903-984-7879. All changes must be submitted by 2:30 p.m.
