Doors open at 7:10 a.m. Except for the first day of school, Assembly starts in the cafeteria at 7:30 a.m. The school day begins at 7:45 a.m. so students need to be in their classrooms at that time or they will be counted as Tardy. The school day ends at 2:57 p.m.

Holidays & Calendar

Austin Independent School District maintains the school calendar for all the campuses. Be sure to check it online as it sometimes changes.

Inclement Weather

On those rare winter days when the forecast calls for ice or snow, AISD may delay the opening of school or close school. Watch the local weather forecast and watch for notification from AISD and Summitt Elementary directly. Bad weather makeup days are built into the school’s calendar.

Parents with questions about transportation, especially when operating on a weather delay, can call AISD’s transportation department between 7:45 am and 4:45 pm at 512-414-0238 to inquire about when busses will resume service
