Volunteers needed to help get dropouts back in school
Spring ISD wants to help students meet their academic and career goals. To help students understand the importance of staying in school and graduating, the district’s annual Graduation Walk is planned for Saturday, Sept. 12. During the walk, school district administrators and community members will visit the homes of high school students who have not returned this school year, have a history of excessive absences or have high indicators that they will not complete high school.
The Westfield High School Choir took the field on Saturday, Aug. 22 to sing the National Anthem prior to a Houston Texans preseason game at NRG Stadium in Houston. With choral director Steffanie Dean, the Westfield choir's voices delighted a crowd of over 70,000 fans.

Spring ISD provides free bus transportation to all students who live 1.5 miles or more from their zoned campus of attendance. To ensure that the most updated student information is on file, all students who ride a Spring ISD school bus must complete a transportation form each year. Forms are available online and at each campus. Completed forms for first through twelfth grade should be turned in to the student’s school within the first week of classes. Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students will not receive any bus service until forms are completed and submitted to the campus.
This fall, nearly all Spring ISD students have access to free lunch and breakfast. Students at every campus will be served breakfast free of charge and through the Community Eligibility Program (CEP), the district will be able to offer lunch at no cost to all elementary and middle school students. Dekaney High School students are also eligible. Provided by the USDA, the program is available to schools that meet certain qualifications.
