    Please take a moment to review our policy for students riding home on a bus with another student:

    • A note is needed from both parties; the student that is going home with a friend AND a note from the friend's parent.
    • Both notes must have a parent signature and a phone number.
    • The campus will contact both parties for verification. Notes can be provided ahead of time for verification.
    • Students will not be allowed to go home with their friend on the bus if we have not had verbal confirmation from both parties.

    If you are unable to receive phone calls at work, please email Beatrice.Garcia@hayscisd.net (front office receptionist) and/or myself James.Cruz@hayscisd.net. You can also text me at 512-698-7007.
