 Mrs. Traylor, Principal Minimize


Dear Ellis Parents:

I am truly honored to be selected as the new principal of such an amazing school community!

I would like to take this time to introduce myself to the Ellis family. I have served as an educator for over 22 years. Most recently, I served as a principal in Crowley ISD for 3 years. My experience also includes additional administrative experience within Crowley ISD, as well as Instructional Specialist, Special Education, and 5th grade teacher in the Fort Worth ISD.  My bachelor’s degree is from Jarvis Christian College, and my master’s degree is from Texas Christian University.

I am committed, along with the Ellis staff, to building strong relationships with parents, students and our community partners. Our priorities are to support/promote the academic, social and emotional growth of all our boys and girls. This year we will focus on our use of data to inform instruction, the implementation of new math and science curriculums, the use of improved instructional strategies to increase student achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

We are all “super excited” to begin what we know will be a phenomenal school year at Ellis Elementary, and I look forward to meeting each of you.


Working together,

Mrs. Shaketa Traylor

 Ellis Arrival and Dismissal Procedures Minimize

August 25, 2014

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Ellis Elementary.  It is our hope that each of you had a restful and relaxing summer break.  We want to assure you that, at Ellis, our number one priority is to provide a safe environment for your children to learn.  In an effort to make Ellis a safe learning environment, please review the arrival and dismissal procedures below.  The arrival and dismissal procedures have changed from last school year. 

Morning Arrival

  • Students will be allowed to enter the building beginning at 7:30 A.M.. The first bell rings at 8:05 A.M., and the tardy bell rings at 8:20 A.M..
  • The parking lot in the front of the building will no longer be used to drop off students.  The driveway on the side of the building facing Sleepy Hollow Drive will be used to drop off students in the morning.  Students will enter through the 4th entry door.  Students who will be eating breakfast should be dropped off no later than 8:05 and will go directly to the cafeteria.  Students that are not eating breakfast will go directly to their grade level hallway and be seated.  There will be several adults throughout each hallway to supervise students.
  • The right lane closest to the curb will be the lane that is used to drop off students in the morning.

Afternoon Dismissal

All students will be dismissed at 3:20 p.m.  All dismissals will take place via the side driveway on Sleepy Hollow. Dismissals will no longer take place in the front driveway on Shadowridge Drive

 Car Riders - Pre-K thru 2nd Grade

Please use the RIGHT lane (closest to the building) ONLY if the student is in grades

PK – 2nd grade (If there are older siblings in grades 3 – 4, parents may still use this lane).  Parent will place name/grade sign in the windshield/dash area of the car.  Students will be delivered to the car by school personnel. 

Car Riders 3rd – 6th Grade

Please use the LEFT lane (closest to the street) ONLY, unless you have a Pre-K – 2nd grade student.  Parent will place name/grade sign in the windshield/dash area of the car.  The student will be delivered to the car by school personnel.


Procedure to change your student’s dismissal

When changing the way your child will be dismissed, please send a note to your child’s teacher including how your child will be getting home, the effective date of the change, and a contact number.  If a change needs to be made during the day, please call and notify the front office by 2:00 p.m.  Notifying the front office by 2:00 p.m. allows adequate time for the front office staff to notify your child’s teacher of the change.

Early Dismissal

If a student needs to be dismissed from school early, the parent, guardian, or someone listed on the student’s enrollment forms as being allowed to pick up the student, must enter the front office and show proof of identity.  Once identity has been verified, the office staff will call the child’s classroom and have the teacher dismiss the student to the office.


Thank you for your cooperation and patience.  We look forward to a successful school year.
