Parents in order to ensure that our 4th-8th grade students are kept safe, we have made a small change to our dismissal procedure. Lane 1 (closest to the building) will be for any parent picking up a 6-8 grade student. 6th-8th grade students will leave from the front doors of the Middle School. 4th and 5th grade students will dismiss from the side door at the ramp. Just like always. Parents only picking up 4th or 5th grade students will need to be in Lane 2. We will not allow students to run through cars. Students will wait at cones until parents pull up. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. It is our goal to ensure the safety of our students.

Late this afternoon, one of our athletes received a threat of violence, and after consultation with local law enforcement, Wortham ISD and Axtell ISD
jointly decided to postpone the JV and Varsity basketball games in Axtell this evening and err on the side of safety for students, staff, and fans.
This game will be rescheduled for a later date.
