- Doors open at 7:45, so please drop them off with plenty of time to get to class.
- Students must be in class by 10:00 to be counted present for the day.
- Only buses can go to the back parking lot, unless the student is enrolled in Early Morning Childcare. No drop-offs after 7:45 in the back.
- Visitors are allowed in the cafeteria at lunch time. No visitors in the instructional area during the school day.
- No transportation changes or taking students early after 2:30.

Nicole Hoffman has been selected as the Assistant Principal of Smith Elementary.

She has served as the academic coach for the past two years at Williams Elementary and has 20 years of experience in education.

“I am truly honored and excited to become a part of the Smith family. I have dreamed of becoming an Assistant Principal for a long time. As they say: ‘when one door closes, another door opens’ and as this door opens, I can’t wait to foster the love of learning with the students, staff and the community. Expect the BEST!”

Ms. Hoffman has spent most of her educational career in Cy-Fair ISD (CFISD) and more recently, Magnolia ISD. She has taught all elementary grade-levels and content areas including populations in special education, English as a second language, and gifted and talented program.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree for Interdisciplinary Studies in Elementary Education from the University of Houston and a Master’s degree for Mid-Management in Education from Sam Houston State University.
She and her husband Shaun reside in Cypress, Texas with their 2 daughters. Shaun owns a corrugated box company in the Houston area and is an antique car junkie.
