Important Update: Riojas Students moved to Hendrickson HS

2 p.m.

The last time for parents to pick up students at Hendrickson High School will be 2 p.m. Students will be available for pick up at Riojas Elementary at 2:30 p.m. Thank you.


10:50 a.m.

Clarification: Students will be taken back to Riojas at the end of the day and released in their normal manner to allow bikers and walkers to go home, as well as for normal parent pick up. Additionally, EDP students will also return to Riojas. Fifth-grade students will return to Riojas at 1:30 after their field trip and remain there for the rest of the school day.


10:15 a.m.

Update: Oncor has informed the district that it could be some time before the air conditioning is functional at the campus; therefore, we are moving all students to Hendrickson High School.

Parents may pick up their students at Riojas Elementary until 10:30 a.m. or at Hendrickson High School after 11 a.m. 
Parents can pick up their students at Hendrickson High School in the circular drive on the south end of the building by the tennis courts (Door #30).

The district will provide sack lunches to all students at Hendrickson High School. Only a parent or legal guardian who is on file with the school district will be able to pick up a student. Students who are not picked up at Hendrickson High School will be transported back to Riojas Elementary for normal dismissal at regular time.


8:40 a.m.

We were informed by Oncor yesterday that power had been fully restored to Riojas Elementary and air conditioners were running last night to cool the building. This morning staff found that classrooms were not sufficiently cooling, but general areas such as hallways and the cafeteria had air conditioning. Shortly after 8 a.m. the air conditioning was turned off to the building due to power issues. We contacted Oncor immediately and they are working to address the issue. We hope to have the air conditioning functional as soon as possible. As always parents are welcome to pick up their students early. Fifth-grade students are attending their field trip to the Scott Mentzer Pool and will return to the school at 1:30 p.m.
