Transportation Protocol – Updated

NEW TIMES!  SBISD had over twenty bell schedules in existence which made bus transportation very difficult. There will now only be TWO elementary bell schedules district wide. We selected a start time of 7:50 (instead of 7:20).

Our first bell dismissing students from the gym and the cafeteria will be at 7:45.  Our second bell marking your student tardy will be at 7:50.  BHE TV begins at 7:50.  Plan ahead!

Carpool will be open from 7:20 to 7:45. Gates will be locked (even on rainy days) promptly at 7:45. ALL late students (carpool, walkers, bikers, etc.) will have to be signed in by a parent at the front window after 7:50. This is a MAJOR CHANGE. Please plan ahead – you will need to be in the carpool line by 7:25 or your child will be late. Classroom instruction begins promptly at 7:50 am. Thank you for supporting us in getting EVERY CHILD to class ON TIME!!

Click the link below for a map showing how to get from the front of the school (main entrance) to the back of the school (carpool).
