Principal's Message

I have been working with campus and district staff to create a plan to work together and weather this difficult time.  Please note that information will continue to change, as this situation continues to unfold. I will provide updates as soon as I receive them. Throughout this difficult time, we will remain steadfast.  The safety of our students, parents, and staff are our number one priority.


During these challenging times, please know that you have a variety of resources available. Visit https://www.austinisd.org/student-health/coronavirus for the latest updates.


I will continue to be in communication with you as I receive updates and as we plan for distance learning. Please contact me via email at Jennifer.stephens@austinisd.org if you have any questions.


There are uncertain times ahead of us, but together we will weather this storm. Our strength and family spirit will rally to keep our community healthy, supported, and loved during this crisis.
