Leander ISD's Vision is that "Students will exit our system with the same passion for learning they had when they entered, without economics determining success. Every Option Open."
Cypress Elementary is PROUD to be a Leader in Me Campus where we LEARN, LIVE and LEAD with the 7 Habits!
We, the Cypress Community, will aim to create a rich learning environment and promote student ownership of life-long learning through collaboration, differentiation and positive support where ALL students feel safe, loved and respected and strive to reach their maximum potential in an ever-changing world.

Student Transfer Requests for 2016-17 School Year
Due to projected enrollment size for the 2016-2017 school year, this campus has been closed to new transfers, except consideration will be given to siblings of students who currently attend and who will attend next year. Please be aware that if your student is not zoned to this campus or does not already attend this campus on an approved transfer, this campus is closed and will not be accepting any NEW transfer requests for the following school year, 2016-2017.
Children who currently attend the campus as a 4th-grader, either as a zoned student or as a transfer student, will be permitted to attend the current campus as a 5th-grade transfer in the next school year, and siblings will be permitted to transfer in on a space- and staff-available basis.
All requests to transfer/remain as a transfer must be submitted by the priority deadline date (March 20, 2016) each year in order to be considered, INCLUDING this year's 4th-graders.
Transfer applications from existing transfer students who are not in the 4th-grade will be considered after the priority transfer deadline date, and after available space and staffing have been determined. Parents/guardians will be notified of approval/denial of the transfer request no later than April 20, 2016. Except for approved current-year 4th-graders, there are NO guarantees that children who transfer in to a campus will be able to continue at that campus.
Please note that a non-refundable $30 processing fee was implemented beginning Sept. 1, 2011, for any student requesting a transfer, and this fee does not guarantee approval to the requested campus. When the student transfer submission window opens Feb. 15, 2016, please proceed to Leander ISD’s district website should you wish to submit a transfer request for your child. If you do not have access to a computer, please feel free to stop by the campus and use one of the campus computers. Should you need assistance with the transfer application, schedule a meeting with the registrar at the campus you would like your student to attend, so that s/he may assist you in completing this application.
If your child is going to be out of school please send them with a note upon their return. District policy states that these notes need to be turned into the office within 48 hours of your child returning to school.
To ensure that we are fair to each child, we have asked that birthday treats no longer be edible treats but be in a party favor form. Thank you for your understanding.

LISD Adding 5 Minutes to the School Day in January 2016
Beginning Monday, Jan. 4, 2016, Leander ISD will be adding five minutes to the school day. Elementary campuses will end five minutes later, and high schools will start five minutes earlier, with the exception of Cedar Park High School, which will remain on the same schedule. The new school hours for LISD elementary campuses will be 7:45 a.m. – 2:50 p.m. and high schools will be 8:40 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. Middle school hours will not change, and Cedar Park High School hours will not change.
House Bill 2610, which was passed this last legislative session, requires that public school students receive 75,600 minutes of instruction, instead of 180 days. As a result, LISD is lengthening the school day by five minutes at the elementary and high school campuses (except CPHS). LISD middle schools are not impacted by the new law, nor is CPHS, as their school day already meets the requirements of the law.
If your student rides the bus and his or her route is impacted by this change, LISD Transportation services will notify you of your child’s new pick-up/drop-off time.

Site-Based Planning Committees Need You!
Each campus within Leander ISD has a Site-Based Planning Committee (SBPC). These committees are composed of district employees, community members, business representatives and parents. SBPC members provide input to the principal on a wide variety of subjects, with an aim of improving the achievement of all students.
The committees address such areas as planning, curriculum, budgeting, staff development, staffing patterns and school organization. Elections for parent representatives are held every fall. Parents can only serve as a parent representative at the campus where they have a child attending school.
If you would like to find out more information about the council, run for one of the parent seats or nominate someone for one of the seats, please call the campus your student attends no later than Friday, Sept. 4.
