KATY -

Rylander Elementary School students will be relocated the rest of the week, as a result of an electrical outage.

The school was closed Tuesday for repairs.

School officials say it will take days to repair the system.

As a result, students will report to Tompkins High School the rest of the week. 

The school sent the following release that included instructions for parents:

Regular Bus Riders:  Your bus will run as usual.  Your student will be picked up and  dropped off at the regular bus stop location and delivered to/from OTHS.
 
Daycare Van Riders:  Daycares will be notified of the temporary move and requested to pick-up and drop-off between OTHS and the daycare centers.  The daycare transportation schedule will be adjusted so there may be a slight delay in returning to the daycare in the afternoon.  Rylander staff will also be on duty at Rylander to facilitate this process.
 
Walkers/Bike Riders:  Students who normally walk or ride their bike to Rylander may continue to do so.  They will then ride a Katy ISD bus “shuttle” to the OTHS campus in the morning.  The bus will pick up and return students to Rylander in the afternoon so that they may walk or ride their bike home.   Crossing guards will be on duty in the morning and the afternoon.
 
Parent Pick-Up/Drop-Off:  The parent pick-up and drop-off location will be at the front entrance of the 9th  Grade Center.   Please see attached map.  Parents should enter from the Falcon Landing Blvd. entrance closest to Gaston Road.  Cars will circle through the perimeter of the parking lot for a drop-off in front of
the Performing Arts Center.  Students will exit the cars and meet their
teachers in the Performing Arts Center area.  There will be Rylander
personnel on duty to guide students in locating their class and teacher.  
 
YMCA Before- and After-
School Care:
This will be located at the 9th  Grade Center cafeteria.  The drop-off site for this program will be at the front entrance of the 9th Grade Center.
 
 
Life Skills Classes:  Students enrolled in these classes will be relocated to Creech Elementary School where they can take advantage of the materials and equipment from an already existing Life Skills program on that campus.   All buses that provide transportation will be re-routed to that campus.
 
Daily Schedule:  The instructional day will remain the same (i.e. lunch will be at the same time, recess at the same time).  Students who eat breakfast at school will be served beginning at 8:00 a.m. in the 9th grade cafeteria.
 
Picture Make-Up Day:  This will be rescheduled.
 
Events to be Rescheduled:  Open House will be rescheduled.
The 5th  grade reading tutorial scheduled for November 23 will be
cancelled. Mrs. Steuer’s field trip will be rescheduled for when we return to Rylander. All conferences will be rescheduled - teachers will be contacting parents to set a new time.
 
Closed Campus:  While we are housed at OTHS, we ask that parents refrain from walking your students to class and visiting the school during lunch time.   Additional staff will be on site to escort students to their classrooms.
