Cell Phone Use in School Zones

State of Texas traffic laws are enforceable in school zones as well. Please remember to be hands free while on the phone this includes texting.
If you have complaints or concerns, please contact Officer Roberson 817-949-5414.

There have been several complaints about vehicles turning in front of waiting vehicles on Kirkwood Blvd. before or after school.
The far right lane must continue straight and not turn in front of vehicles waiting to the left trying to turn to get into the drop off / pick up line.
Remember from drivers ed - two lines that intersect have a point of impact. Officers will be issuing citations for this violation.
If you are needing to park in the parking lot you must either wait or turn in the parking lot from the east side traveling west.

Any questions on this please contact Officer Roberson 817-949-5414

Laptop Covers
We still have hard-shell laptop covers (green only) available for purchase for $20.
Please see Mrs. Gulliver or Mrs. Brett in the front office to purchase one.
