Fidget Tools


You may have seen or heard in the media about the popularity of “fidget spinners” among school age students. On May 26, we sent out a message to all parents to ensure there is clear and consistent information about the use of fidget tools in our school setting.


Information about the use of fidget tools is available in our For Parents page.


Parking Lot & Traffic Safety


The safety of all students at all times is a priority at Sam Livingston School. Loading or unloading of children in our parking lot is prohibited. Please review the Traffic Safety Map (pdf) and read the "Traffic Safety" section in For Parents. Thank you for working with us to ensure our students are always safe!
