To all 7th and 8th graders - Hello, this is a message from the Palacios Jr. High School calling to remind you that school starts Monday. We are very excited for the opportunity to once again educate your child. Students will need to report to their homeroom teachers at the beginning of the school day to collect their schedules and gather their information packets. Please be expecting to receive these information packets from your child on Monday afternoon. We would greatly appreciate it if you could get these filled out and returned to the school as fast as possible. Students needing medication at school should make sure they have their paperwork filled out with the front office so we can properly provide care for them at school starting on the first day. Thanks again for your time and have a wonderful afternoon.

Hello, this is Carolyn Kubecka, Principal of East Side Intermediate. One day this week, East Side will be conducting a “lock down” drill in the event of an intruder or other emergency. During the drill, a sign will be posted on the door. All access doors to our campus will be locked and no one will be given access to the building until the completion of the exercise. The drill should last no more than 20-25 minutes. Fundraiser forms and money were due today. If your child hasn’t turned their form in, please do so tomorrow so that the items can be ordered. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call East Side at 361-972-2016.
