Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Texarkana Independent School District will have to do things differently this year.

The Texas Middle School will email out school schedules to the email address they have on file for students and parents, guardians. If your student does not remember their email password, please have them contact Franshicka Banks-Brown at

School schedules will be emailed out on Friday, August 14 at 4:00 p.m. The Digital Meet the Teacher will be Monday, August 17 at 4:30 p.m.Here is how you access the event.

1. Visit: under Schools click "Texas Middle School" Choose "Digital Meet the Teacher" link on the left-hand side

2. 'Select Grade Level'  then find your teacher their name in orange is a live link to their email address so that you can contact them with any questions and/or concerns you may have during the school year.

Texas Middle School staff will be contacting parents/guardians & students to set up times to conference via Phone or Google Meets.

Lastly, for students who have chosen 'At-Home Remote Learning'. Beginning August 19th, students must log into each of their daily teacher’s 'Google Classroom' and complete the necessary requirements for that day to be counted as present. Failure to do so and/or failure to correctly complete and submit assignments in the time assigned by the teacher will result in losing credit due to non-attendance and/or failing grades.

The school year begins on August 19.
