Safety UpdateKealing Parents: This morning we were made aware of a situation in the community near campus, and we are in communication with the Austin Police Department to monitor the situation closely. Our campus is in a reverse evacuation (meaning that everyone stays inside and transition continues within the walls of our building) until the situation is completely resolved to ensure our students' safety. There is no imminent threat, but we are playing it safe and ensuring that all our students and staff remain within the perimeter of our building. Dianne CarterMagnet DirectorKealing Middle School
