The district's top concern during this time is the health and safety of our students, staff, and community. Although AISD campuses are currently closed, we will facilitate continuous learning opportunities for our students and District operations will continue. SAFA staff are working remotely and are available to assist you via email, phone, or virtual meeting. Please reach out to us via email (for quickest response) or by leaving a phone message and we will return your call as soon as possible. For AISD related emergencies, you can always call AISD Campus Police at (512) 414-1703. We look forward to connecting with you soon—stay safe!
