Day one live shots are welcomed – we can have principal, staff, and parents for you to interview as early as 6 a.m. The elementary school day starts at 7:45 a.m.

The namesake of the school, Dr. Linda G. Mora will be at the school to welcome students on their first day to the brand new facility. Dr. Mora served as Deputy Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction at NISD from 2002 to 2016.
