Removal of the Campus Enrollment Cap for Schools for the 2024-2025 Academic Year

Lamar CISD is among the fastest-growing school districts in Texas, and student enrollment continues to climb. As a result of the growing student population, we placed enrollment caps on several campuses during the last two years.   

To keep up with our growth, we frequently build and open new schools while reviewing and monitoring enrollment. After careful consideration and planning, we are pleased to announce that for the 2024-2025 school year, we are removing the cap on student enrollment for the following campuses:  

  • Bentley ES 
  • Hubenak ES 
  • Huggins ES 
  • Lindsey ES 
  • Morgan ES 
  • Tamarron ES 
  • George Ranch HS

We anticipate increased accessibility to our schools when we remove the cap. However, we understand that some of our families have grown accustomed to the overflow campuses. Therefore, we want to clarify the options available for families impacted by the cap and overflow process.   

If your student will be in 5th grade for the 2024-2025 school year and is attending an overflow campus, you can either continue with your student attending the overflow campus for the upcoming school year or have your student attend their home/zoned campus. It is important to note that if you choose to keep your student at the overflow campus, you are responsible for their transportation to and from school.   

This option is ONLY available to students who will be in 5th grade for the 2024-2025 school year. It does NOT apply to any siblings of that student.  

We understand that this decision may present challenges for some families, and we are committed to providing support and assistance wherever possible. If you have any questions or concerns regarding enrollment, please contact [email protected].  

Retiro del límite de inscripción en los campus escolares para el curso 2024-2025

Lamar CISD se encuentra entre los distritos escolares de más rápido crecimiento de Texas, y las inscripciones de estudiantes siguen en aumento. Como resultado de esta creciente población estudiantil, hemos establecido límites de inscripción en varios campus durante los últimos dos años.

Para seguir el ritmo de este crecimiento, construimos y abrimos con frecuencia nuevas escuelas al mismo tiempo que revisamos y controlamos las inscripciones. Tras una cuidadosa consideración y planificación, nos complace anunciar que para el ciclo escolar 2024-2025, eliminaremos el límite de inscripción de estudiantes para los siguientes planteles: 

  • Bentley ES 
  • Hubenak ES 
  • Huggins ES 
  • Lindsey ES 
  • Morgan ES 
  • Tamarron ES 
  • George Ranch HS

Tenemos previsto un aumento de la accesibilidad a nuestras escuelas cuando eliminemos este límite. Sin embargo, entendemos que algunas de nuestras familias se han acostumbrado a los campus saturados. Por lo tanto, queremos aclarar las opciones disponibles para las familias afectadas por los límites y el proceso de sobrecupo.

Si su hijo cursa el 5º grado en el ciclo escolar 2024-2025 y asiste a un campus con sobrecupo, tiene dos opciones: continuar asistiendo al campus de sobrecupo durante el próximo ciclo escolar o hacer que su hijo asista al campus de su zona correspondiente. Es importante tener en cuenta que si decide mantener a su hijo en el campus de sobrecupo, usted es responsable del transporte desde y hasta la escuela.

Esta opción SÓLO está disponible para los estudiantes que cursarán el 5º grado en el ciclo escolar 2024-2025. NO se aplica a ningún hermano de ese estudiante.

Entendemos que esta decisión puede presentar retos para algunas familias, y estamos comprometidos a proporcionar apoyo y asistencia siempre y cuando sea posible. Si tiene alguna pregunta o duda sobre la inscripción, póngase en contacto con [email protected].
