A Message from your Principal....


Foster Family,

Last week I was invited to the March school board meeting to honor several of our campus students. We recognized the National Merit finalist, our national award winning yearbook staff, our state medalist swimmers, and our state champion wrestler. Only one other campus had one group to recognize. Foster continues to lead the district in accomplishments.

We have been given our allotment of tickets for senior graduation. Each student will receive 15 tickets and 2 parking passes. They should be on campus for distribution by early may. In addition, caps and gowns are coming in and Balfour will be on campus on April 17th to distribute during all lunches. If you have not ordered the gown, go to and place the order. If you have waited, the gown will not be part of the first shipment.

Finally, I want to congratulate Foster High School for winning the UIL Academic Sweepstakes for 2023. This is our first time back on top in several years. Thanks to Mrs. Willeby, UIL coaches, and students for continuing to show why Foster is GREAT!!

Protect the Nest!!

Jerry Kipping, FHS Principal

2023 - 2024 School Hours


As one of the fastest-growing districts in Texas, it is our responsibility to anticipate and respond to the needs of our students, parents, and staff – now more than ever.


With campuses stretched across 385 square miles, our families and staff have spent the last two years combatting bus driver shortages and long transit hours, and the challenges have only increased.


To alleviate these growing pains, our Trustees approved new school hours at the February board meeting. We have designed the following four-tier system, which will be implemented at the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year. This shift ensures that we have enough drivers for each route and eliminates the need for comeback routes.


7:15 AM to 2:40 PM Elementary (Group A)

7:45 AM to 3:10 PM Elementary (Group B)

8:25 AM to 3:50 PM High School

9:05 AM to 4:30 PM Middle School & Junior High


Our commitment to serve the community is strong. Thank you for staying engaged. Your involvement ensures that our District carries on a proud tradition of excellence.

Student parking is available at the campus for those who meet the parking requirements. Student pick-up is also located on campus. It has been brought to our attention that students are parking and being picked up at the shopping center parking lot next door. This is becoming very unsafe for the customers who are walking from their vehicle to their destination in that shopping center.

Beginning Monday, February 13, 2023, students may not walk to the shopping center to be picked up after school. In addition, students who park there will be subject to have their vehicle towed at the vehicle owner's expense. Thank you for your cooperation.
