***Due to COVID-19 we have made changes to our drop-off and pick-up procedures.  

We are asking that everyone adhere to the following guidelines for drop off and pick‐ up.


Temperature Screenings
 – All students will be given temperature screenings as they enter the school  buildings.  

  • Anyone with a 100 or greater reading will not be allowed at school for that day and should  not return until fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever suppressing medication or a release  from a doctor. 
  • Anyone with a 99 reading will be sent to a waiting area until they can be rescreened a  few moments later by a nurse. 
  • If the student’s temperature reads over 100 at the nurse’s secondary screening, they will not be allowed at school for that day and should not return until fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever suppressing medication or a release from a doctor.  
  • Elementary & Middle School car riders will be screened as they exit the vehicle.  Parents may be asked to park and wait if their child has a reading of 99 degrees and is taken for a second screening by a nurse.

***Our buses do use the same route as cars, so we ask that parents always yield to the buses and give them the right of way.  



  • All students (Pre-K through 12th) who ride a bus to and from school will be required to wear a mask and asked to sit with siblings/family members to allow for more spacing.
  • Students will load from the back to the front and assigned seating may be a possiblity. It is recommended that parents screen their children in the mornings and that an adult stand outside with the bus riders until they have been screened and cleared to ride the bus. Contactless temperature screenings will be administered to students as they enter the bus. 
  • Students with a reading of 100 or more will not be permitted to ride the bus.  
  • Parents should be prepared for your child(ren) to return to the house if they are running a fever greater than 100. 
  • Bus riders will be re-screened as they enter their campus by school staff. 
  • If riding a bus is not an absolute necessity for your child(ren), we ask that you consider dropping them off and picking them up if possible.  
  • Buses will be disinfected daily.


Cell Phones are Prohibited While Driving Through a School Zone

Texas school zone law, under HB 347, prevents using a cell phone when driving through an active school crossing zone. This includes property of a public elementary, middle, or junior high school for which a local authority has designated a school crossing zone. Exempt from this law, are vehicles that are stopped, drivers using hands free devices, or making a call to emergency services such as police, medical, fire or other first responders.


Whether your student is a bus rider, car rider or walker, we want to ensure that your child get home safely each day.  If you would like to make a one day change to how your child will get home, please contact the school office at 936-552-3441 before 12 noon on that day and we will notify them of the change.
