Elementary School #29 Attendance Zone Option A Approved
Dear Groves, Lakeshore, Ridge Creek and Summerwood Elementary School Families,
Thank you for your input regarding proposed attendance zones for Elementary School #29, which opens next school year and is under construction in the Lakewood Pines neighborhood. Your input showed a preference for Option A. Of the comments shared online by parents expressing support for an option, Option A was preferred 73 percent, compared to 27 percent for Option B.
Attendance Zone Option A was approved at the September 10, 2019, meeting of the Humble ISD Board of Trustees.
Option A: Elementary #29
Students residing in these neighborhoods will be zoned to the new elementary school:
- Lake Forest Village (55B)
- Lake Park Village (55B)
- Lakeside Terrace (55B)
- Lakewood Pines (55A)
- South Pointe Village (55F)
- Stillwater on Lake Houston (55I)
- Suncrest Village (55F)
- Summer Lake Ranch (55I)
(The above neighborhoods are currently zoned to Lakeshore Elementary School. )
- Balmoral Section 1 (15E)
Flex Zone: Choice of ES #29 or Ridge Creek Elementary
- Balmoral Section 2 & 3 (15P & 15Q)
Flex Zone: Choice of ES #29 or Groves Elementary
(In Flex Zones, students have the option of attending the school to which they are zoned or attending the new school with bus transportation provided.)
Under the new boundaries, the Lakeshore flex zone to Groves Elementary School will no longer be in place. Families currently enrolled at Groves Elementary from the Lakeshore flex zone will have the option to remain at Groves on a transfer which will be automatically granted. Transportation to and from school for all transfer students in Humble ISD is the parent’s responsibility.
The new boundaries also rezone one section (55K - Chapman Woods Crossing Apartments) from Lakeshore Elementary to Ridge Creek Elementary.
If my area was zoned to the new school and I want my children to remain at their current school, can they?
Currently enrolled students will be allowed to remain at their current school through the completion of fifth grade if they choose to do so. These students will be transfer students, and their transfer request will be automatically granted. The district will not split families: If a younger sibling enters school while a currently enrolled student is on a transfer to that school, the sibling’s transfer request will be granted so that all siblings can be at the same school together. Transportation to and from school for all transfer students in Humble ISD is the parent’s responsibility.
How can I learn more about the new elementary School?
Principal Alison Pierce will be holding a series of informational presentations about the new school, as well as engaging the community in developing the school’s colors, mascot and culture. Invitations to participate will be issued by email when plans are finalized.
