Austin Elementary General Information

      • The front doors to Austin open at 7:20 a.m.  Students are to report to the Gym and are dismissed to their classes at 7:30.  In an effort to maximize instruction, morning announcements are at 7:45 with the tardy cut off being at 7:40.  The front doors remain open during the school day and are locked at 4:00 each afternoon.  All side doors to Austin are locked at all times during the day.  Afternoon dismissal begins at 3:05. 


      • To help us maintain the safety and security of our building, we ask that you allow your child to walk to class alone rather than escorting your child down the hall.  This helps us have a greater awareness of monitoring who is in the building.  This also helps your child build more confidence in themselves while also allowing teachers to get the day started more smoothly.
      • Any volunteers or visitors to Austin Elementary must check in at the front office before proceeding to any other area of the building, including the cafeteria.
