Jackets from the Junior League of Austin

Last week, the Junior League of Austin graciously delivered some free jackets for the majority of our students.

Front Playground Closed Until Further Notice. / Parque cerrado hasta nuevo aviso.

Due to the large turnout of people/cars, their car line stretches into our parking lot while people wait for the food. Several of the people who are waiting in their car lines are now letting their large dogs run loose in our playground. We have asked them to keep their dogs in their cars, but many are still letting their dogs run free while they wait for their turn in the food line.
