We’re so tired from this school year that we had to abbreviate “Everything You Need To Know About” to just EYNTKA to finish telling you about the last days of the 2018-2019 school year. So let’s do it.
SAFETY AND SECURITY PROCEDURES FOR THE FINAL DAYS OF SCHOOL
Safety and security are one of the campus’ major priorities, but according to Keller ISD administration, “due to previous disorderly incidents, both in Keller ISD as well as in other areas, the high school principals have established procedures and expectations specific to the final week of the year.”
That means things are a little different starting Friday, May 17, 2019. Here’s the rules:
1. No backpacks, athletics bags or duffle bags will be allowed on campus after May 17.
2. No lockers will be available for usage after May 17.
3. Textbooks will be collected from May 15 to May 23.
4. Extra personnel have been assigned to each campus, including 24-hour security.
5. Extra security cameras are available on campuses.
6. Students must leave the building immediately at the 3:45 p.m. bell beginning May 20. There will be limited scheduled activities on campuses after 3:45 p.m.
What happens to students that “disrupt the learning environment” during this time? Keller ISD detailed the consquences in a letter to families:
“Students who disrupt the learning environment will be subject to suspension and further disciplinary action per the Keller ISD Student Code of Conduct. Seniors who involve themselves in such disruptions will also be suspended from walking in the graduation ceremony, according to Policy FMH Local. For students who are not seniors, involvement in disruption of the learning environment may be punishable up to and including DAEP placement for 60 days to include next school year.”
