Free After School Program & Tutoring Bus
AYPYN: stands for Army Youth Programs in Your Neighborhood. For those not familiar with AYPYN, it is a program endorsed by the district and the army that supports ALL of our student population. This is a FREE after school program open to ALL students Monday-Thursday from 4:15-6:00 p.m. in the auditorium lobby. Students can report to this location to receive a free snack every day and participate in various structured activities with adult supervision.
Students must report there by 4:30 p.m. each day. This is a benefit to students, parents, and the campus as it is a safe location for students to be if they cannot be picked up right after school.
Another available resource for your student is daily after school tutoring for core subject areas located in the library until 5:15. Students must arrive by 4:30 p.m. to take advantage of this opportunity. In addition, they MUST receive a special pass to ride the tutoring bus that departs our campus at 5:15 p.m. or they will not be able to ride. The tutoring bus drops students off at Eastern Hill Middle School, Liberty Hill Middle School, Union Grove Middle School, and Nolan Elementary.
Please take advantage of these resources offered to help students achieve academically and ensure their safety.
New District Policy
Once a student arrives at school, he/she is not permitted to leave campus at any time during the school day without administrative permission, except students classified as sophomores, juniors, or seniors who may leave during their respective lunch periods, or students who have completed their school day. Students who are enrolled in a work cooperative program may leave campus when their instructional day is completed. Sophomores, juniors, or seniors departing and returning from lunch must be prepared to wear or show their ID’s while doing so and when requested while off campus. Sophomore, junior, or senior privilege of leaving campus for lunch may be revoked for individuals for any violation of closed campus rules.
All KISD schools are closed campuses for freshmen students. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are allowed to leave campus for lunch. If a sophomore, junior, or senior attempts to take an underclassman off campus, he or she may lose his or her off-campus rights for the rest of the school year and may be subject to other disciplinary actions deemed appropriate by the campus principal or principal designee.
All freshmen must remain on campus for lunch. Eating or drinking outside of the designated eating area will result in disciplinary action. Students in grade 9 who violate closed campus rules during their freshmen year may lose their off-campus privilege as an upperclassman.
Designated Eating Areas include: cafeteria, court yard adjacent to the cafeteria, front court yard, and basketball court.
Freshman students are not allowed beyond the flag pole or in the parking lot during lunch.
