CISD Announces New Elementary Early Release Times

IMPORTANT CHANGE for 2015-2016

Parents of elementary students are reminded that the first five days of school for our littlest Dragons are Early Release Days. This year, however, Carroll Independent School District is announcing new times for early release Aug. 24-28. All Kindergarten through Fourth Grade students will be dismissed at 11:55 a.m. per guidelines from the Texas Education Agency.

Buses will run the first week for K-4 students, but CISD will not be serving lunch. Students are encouraged to bring a healthy snack to eat before classes are dismissed at 11:55 a.m. This is a new time for early dismissal, so parents please plan accordingly. The early release days provide valuable one-on-one baseline literacy assessments for our teachers and students.

Preschool Release Times: Preschool students at Carroll Elementary and Rockenbaugh Elementary will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. the first five days of school. Students are encouraged to bring sack lunches; preschool students will have the option to order a CISD deli bag lunch on each of those days. Dismissal times vary slightly from K-4 due to traffic flow, safety and pick-up locations. Due to traffic congestion the first five days of school, parents of preschool students should not plan to arrive on campus for early dismissal pick-up before 12:30 p.m. This will give K-4 traffic and buses time to clear out first.

Students in grades PK-4 will begin the regular full-day school schedule on Monday,
