Early Dismissal February 3 and 4

Middle schools have early dismissal Wednesday (February 3) and Thursday (February 4).  Because of our weird schedule this year, the instructional day looks like every other days except all students will leave campus at 1:50 pm after the last class.  There will only be one bus run which is at 1:50 pm. If you child rides the magnet shuttle, please make sure they are picked up as soon as they arrive at the home campus. There is no tutoring on campus after 1:50 pm.  The only students who should be on campus after 1:50 pm are the students in KIN and athletes staying for track practice.

Magnet Applications due February 12th.

The NEISD Magnet applications are open now.  If you know someone who may be interested in applying for KSAT for the 2021-22 school year, let them know the deadline to apply is February 12th. If they apply after February 12, they automatically go to the waitlist and will be considered for admission later in the process. February 12th is also the deadline for 8th grade students who wish to apply to a high school magnet as well. 

For more information about KSAT, please visit www.neisd.net/ksat .  On that page, you will find links to the application, the KSAT Brochure, and a link to the “virtual hall” used during our virtual open house.  In the "hall", you can explore the program and hear from some of the teachers about their grade level.

Since we are closed to visitors and we have had limited face to face recruiting events, I created a “KSAT Informational Video Spring 2021” found at the link below to provide a quick overview of the program.

Current 8th grade KSAT students get automatic admission into ETA, but you must let them know you are coming.  See the ETA website for more information.

Reach out to my office at 210-356-4706 if you have further questions.

Have a great evening.
