Barn Rules Students and parents may enter barn through Katy-Hockley OR Beckendorff entrance. However ALL barn visitors are to park in the Katy-Hockley parking lot. Infractions will be dealt w/ under 3 offenses rule. We have not assigned pens. We will be utilizing OT HS barn for overcrowding.
We are going to do everything we can to address cleanliness of barn – infractions! 1 st Offense: The student will receive a letter from the AST, which constitutes a warning, and the problem must be remedied within two days of letter’s date to the satisfaction of the AST. The letter will be signed by both the student and the parent, and filed in the CTE office of KISD. A copy of the letter will be made available to the campus administrator of the student. 2 nd Offense: Same as above – will be considered a final warning. 3 rd Offense: Student will be evicted from the facility and the animal will be removed from the premises at the owner’s expense.
All guests are the responsibility of the feeder. Infractions will be assessed to the FFA member. Stay in your own barn. Barn is School property – dress code and tobacco policy applies No pets If there is an issue with the barn after hours or weekends call KISD Police 281-237-4000
