We are constantly reviewing our safety and security measures. One new requirement is all visitors must present their current year VIPS ID badge, driver’s license, or another form of identification containing their photograph issued by a governmental entity (Texas DPS ID card, current out of state driver’s license, passport, etc.).
If you have your VIPS badge, please wear it while you are in the building. If not, please provide your driver’s license. We will run this through our Raptor system and print a temporary photo visitor’s badge for you.Tomorrow our 3rd 4th grade students take the STAAR Mathematics test. Wednesday, 3rd, 4th grades take the Reading test and 5th graders take the Science test. Due to the STAAR testing and the need to keep our building quiet, there will be no parents allowed to come to lunch Tuesday and WednesdaySpeaking of the STAAR test, we received our 5th grade results late last week;
| || Passed || Did not Pass |

| Level III |
| Level 1 |
