Classes will begin at the normally scheduled time, but will dismiss early that day. The Ft. Sam Houston Elementary School will dismiss at 11:45. Cole Middle and High School and the Military Coop will dismiss at 12:30. All regular bus routes will run at those times.

District Introduces Safety Tracker App
In our continuing efforts to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students and staff, the Ft.

Users can submit text messages, images, or video and the submissions can be anonymous if desired. School administrators will receive notification of the submissions and will review all tips entered through the system. Directions for download (including the school codes needed for using the app) can be found HERE. Thanks for your continued support of FSHISD!

Free Technology Training Online!
The Fort Sam Houston ISD  recently purchased a site license with Atomic Learning, an online resource for technology video tutorials. The service provides "as needed" access to over 40,000 video tutorials covering over 120 software applications.

Fort Sam Houston ISD has earned a rich history and tradition of excellence since its doors opened in 1952.  We are proud of all our students and staff have accomplished in our 60 plus years and we are excited about all the new learning opportunities our future brings.  
Our District staff has the highest expectations for the academic success of its students.  One of our priorities is to provide engaging, challenging, and meaningful work for our learners.  We also recognize that we must actively engage our community and be united around the shared responsibility of ensuring our youth are prepared for the challenges of the future.  Educational research clearly reflects that when parents work in partnership with their children's teachers, both the children and the schools clearly benefit.
