Jose Antonio Menchaca Elementary

Bell Schedule and Drop Off

Front office hours are Monday - Friday 7:05am-3:30 pm.


Menchaca Elementary begins at 7:40 am.  

The school building opens for student drop off at 7:05am. Parent pick up and drop off will enter from FM1626 and exit onto Menchaca Road.  All parents must have a sign in their window with their child's name listed.  There is no parking in the bus loop area.  

All students dropped off after 7:40 am will enter through the side gate facing the bus loop and be marked tardy.

Dismissal begins daily at 3:00 pm with buses loaded to depart at 3:08 pm.


Please be patient as our location at the corner of Menchaca Road and FM 1626 can create heavy traffic. Be courteous and kind to others as that is our Menchaca Way.
