As I am sure many have noticed, the start and dismissal times have changed a little at all campuses. There are several reasons for this mostly related to a change in the law that requires Texas schools to attend school for a certain number of minutes per year as opposed to days. This benefits us in several ways. For example, the EISD calendar has enough time built into the schedule that in the event we have to miss a few days for bad weather we will not have to make them up.
At Middle School our start and dismissal times are a little later. Our first bell rings at 8:00 and class starts at 8:05. A student is tardy at 8:05. If your only stop is at the Middle School for pick up or drop off you can avoid some of the traffic congestion by arriving a little later in the morning and afternoon.
Traffic around ANY school gets a little crazy in the mornings and afternoons. We appreciate everyone’s patience to keep ALL of our students safe!
