AISD Updated Safety System at Kiker

Always be prepared to show identification when visiting Kiker! As you are all planning visits to Kiker for any reason (with the exception of morning drop off) please always be prepared show identification.  If you have been here before, we will  ask you to provide your drivers license for us to scan and update in our system.  If you have friends or family that will be coming with you, please make sure they bring identification as well.

If you need to pick your child up early, we will ask for identification. In addition, try to be here by 2:30.  This will allow plenty of time for the buddies that escort them to the office to get back to class safely prior to dismissal.  Please note that this system has been updated district wide. We thank you for your help and understanding while we work out all of the details!

Get Involved

It’s for the kids.

There are so many ways to support Kiker
