A letter from Superintendent Paul Cruz

March 19, 2018

Dear Austin ISD families, We hope that you and your family had a restful and relaxing Spring Break, but we understand that tension may be high as our children return to school in the midst of the situation in Austin involving explosives.

We want you to know we are coordinating with the Austin Police Department—along with state and federal partners—to take any and all necessary security precautions.

This is what our campus faculty and staff are doing:

• Being mindful of anything that looks out of the ordinary.

• Contacting the Austin Police Department immediately if they see anything suspicious.

• Conducting perimeter checks for any suspicious items inside or outside of school buildings.

• Carefully examining all mail deliveries.

We remain vigilant with our safety and security measures, and we need your help.

Talk with your students about being cautious. Make sure they understand they should not touch anything unusual or suspicious, and should report it to a trusted adult or the police.

Yearbook Time!!!!!

It’s time to start thinking about yearbooks again! They go to press the middle of April and then you can’t buy it unless you want it delivered to your home in the summer! You must buy by April 13th and your custom pages must be done at that time as well.

Yearbooks are $21 and you can buy them here. A FAQ for Gullett is here.

Any other questions? Email anne.jarriel@austinisd.org.
