Important Campus Information
Arrival/Tardies: In order to avoid a tardy arrival, we request that you drop your student off at school no later than 7:50 am each morning. Teachers will be on duty to supervise students at 7:30 am daily when the doors open. The building is not open to students prior to 7:30am. Breakfast will be available in the cafeteria each morning. Students will report to their classrooms at 7:50 am and the tardy bell will ring at 8:10 am. If a student arrives after 8:10 am, the student must report to the front office to receive a tardy slip.
Dismissal: Students dismiss a variety of ways (walk, bike, car rider, day care and bus), so it is crucial that the dismissal is systematic and organized to ensure the safety of all involved. Parents will indicate a dismissal plan with the teacher at the beginning of the school year. In order to adequately prepare for dismissal, students may not be checked out of school after 2:45 pm.
Severe Weather Dismissal Plan: A severe weather dismissal will be called if severe weather (high winds, tornado, lightning, etc.) is present at 2:45 pm. For the safety of our students, no walkers or bike riders will be allowed on these days. Walkers and bikers will follow their severe weather plan developed by their parents. Student will dismiss regularly in rain as long as no severe weather is present.
Extended Day: Extended Day is a service provided by FBISD. Here's the link to the website https://www.fortbendisd.com/extendedlearning Please contact them once your child is registered and they can answer questions you may have about the Extended Day Program.
Visitors and Volunteers: If you plan to visit the school for special occasions, chaperone field trips and would like to volunteer your time; you must complete an electronic history background application each school year. The background application can be found on the FBISD home page. It may take up to two weeks for the school to receive approval; therefore, you may want to complete the form soon to have it ready when the need arises. We value your support and look forward to collaborating with you during the school year!
Federal and State Report Cards
James C. Neill Elementary has posted two required, annual performance reports, School Report Card and Federal Report Card.
School Report Card (SRC)
The SRC is a report required by Section 39.305 of the Texas Education Code and is prepared annually by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for each campus in the state. The School Report Card (SRC) combines accountability ratings, data from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and financial information to give a broad view of campus performance. Available for each campus in Texas, the SRC is intended specifically to inform parents and guardians about a school’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.
Federal Report Card (FRC)
The FRC is a report required under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA). Each year, TEA prepares an FRC for the State of Texas, each school district and each campus in Texas which is available for public viewing at the link provided (Federal Report Card).
