Coming Up At West

A Message From Our Principal

  • Dear West Elementary Families,

    We are so thankful for a wonderful turnout for our first ever student-led conferences last week! Thank you for taking time to come listen to your student talk about their goals, their achievements and showcase some of their work! Next year, our portfolios will be even more amazing as we build Leadership Portfolios in the Leader in Me Program. Students will be setting goals and tracking their own progress periodically in their portfolios, as well as collecting work samples they are proud of!

    We are rolling out Leader in Me next year, full force! Why Leader in Me? Here's a link with more information on how Leader in Me teaches the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in a way students can understand and apply. https://www.leaderinme.org/research-highlights-leadership/ We are SO excited to see the growth in ALL students academically, socially and emotionally!

    Thank you for partnering with us in all endeavors to ensure your student's success!

Car Line Traffic Flow

  • In the mornings, we utilize a SINGLE file line closest to the building and work hard to open 10 car doors at a time. If your student is able to open the door and get out unassisted, they may do so AFTER all traffic has come to a complete stop.

    We split into 2 lanes for afternoon dismissal.

    Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and sibling groups are assigned to the A lane, closer to the building. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade are assigned to use B lane (they must cross the driveway for pickup). You will go to the same lane EVERY DAY. We will not switch back and forth due to how Car Rider Pro is set up (even when someone is absent). Stay in your assigned lane every day.

    We will be utilizing Car Rider Pro at West this year. If you need additional or replacement tags, the cost this year is $7 due to the cost of the tags increasing.

    You must have your Car Rider Pro tag hanging for it to scan on the reader. DO NOT block the reader.

    We will open the gate for the car line at 2 p.m.. You may NOT line up prior to that time. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

HISD Shuttle System

  • If you have an elementary student that attends West and you have older siblings that attend Intermediate, Junior High or High School, you can choose to drop your older siblings off at West, and they can board a shuttle bus to go to their campuses.

    You may begin dropping off at 7a.m. and the shuttle bus leaves promptly at 7:15 a.m. You will need to arrive by 7:10 a.m. to ensure your student gets loaded onto the shuttle bus by the time it leaves. If you arrive after the bus leaves, you would only be able to drop off your elementary student and would need to drive your other students to school.

    The afternoon shuttle will return to campus between 4 - 4:15 p.m. You need not arrive at the West Elementary campus prior to 4pm to pick up your students.

    There is a separate, smaller driveway for our shuttle service. It is indicated in green on our traffic flow map.

    Should these times not work for you, we encourage you to allow your students to catch the bus from your home.

    Questions regarding the shuttle system can be emailed to Andrea Brandon at abrandon@hisd.com or Joshua Stewart at jstewart2@hisd.com. Thank you!

Campus Information

  • Hallsville ISD officially unveiled the new West Elementary School in January 2023 with a Grand Opening at the district's newest campus located on Loop 281 in Longview. The campus was part of HISD's Bond 2019 projects. West Elementary students spent the Fall 2022 semester at the district's former primary school building while the new school was in its final stages of construction. As a new school in HISD, West Elementary has not received an official school rating from the Texas Education Agency.

Campus Bell Schedule

  • West Elementary's bell schedule begins the school day each day at 7:40 a.m., with the tardy bell at 7:45 a.m. Dismissal in the afternoons is at 3:30 p.m. On Early Release days, dismissal is 12:30 p.m.

    It is important for students to be at school every day and on time! Students are considered tardy after 7:45 am and will need an adult to sign him/her into school. Please park out front in the small parking lot and walk your student into the front office. If your child is sick, remember to send a doctor’s note or parent note when he/she returns. We appreciate your help with your child’s academic success.
