Let’s be diligent in our safety procedures as the school year ends. At times, the closing of the school year can cause an unconscious relaxation of procedures as all school-related celebrations begin to take place. I want to remind everyone that all visitors must enter through the main entry and should badge in using the Raptor System. All external doors should be closed and locked, and all parking lots and playgrounds should be frequently monitored for unwelcome visitors. Again, I encourage us to maintain our spirited celebrations of our students, faculty, and staff, but please be diligent about safety processes while doing so.

Last week, we celebrated our retirees and teachers receiving the Teacher Incentive Allotment recognition. Congratulations to our teachers who earned the outcomes bonuses. We look forward to celebrating even more Alief ISD teachers next year. I want to thank our retirees for their commitment to Alief ISD. Thank you to all of our retirees on behalf of the students and the Alief community for your years of dedication to the education profession. I know many of you will transition to a new chapter in life but do not forget Alief ISD, and always consider yourself welcome. I know the downtime will be much appreciated however, please consider this an early invitation to volunteer or come and celebrate Alief Proud Day, Alief Yes We Can Week, or come back and grab a bite during our Taste of Alief!
