Do the schools in Rockport require School Uniforms?

Do any of the schools out there require them?

muhney no there is a dress code. In fact if you want uniforms you can actually blame me, at least in part, for not having them. I don't want all kids to dress alike - act alike I'd rather they express themselves. Too many people are sheep and never have an original thought.

Flour Bluff has uniforms and I once asked a recent superintendent- was this a good idea? He said he regretted it and I never really got to finish the conversation- we were at a real estate auction.

I do support our dress code.. Nothing sexually provocative and nothing inflamatory (swastikas etc).

Oh no, I was asking because I am against them.. its public school.. if it were private it would be a different story. Also dont think kids should wear uniforms, and if the school makes them, then the school needs to pay for them.

As a security specialist as well, I dont like school logos on shirts, ids wear them to the store, the mall and what not.. some one who wants to do that child harm, now knows where to hang out at. Dress code is the best way to deal with it. Good deal.

Hey Steve if you come across a 3 bedroom that allows pets out that way give me a heads up.. not over $950 a month.

Hey Muhnay, good luck finding a place. Do you check the Rockport-Pilot classifieds online? This was just listed:
216 LAZY LANE
Lovely Peninsula Oaks home- 3br/1-1/2ba/2+. Leaded glass cherry wood cabinets with pretty custom kitchen & bathroom tiling. Easy clean saltillo tile floors throughout. Attached garage/hobby/playroom. Detached garage/ workroom/boat-RV storage. Huge yard with trees, flowering bushes, sandbox, bird- friendly wilderness corner. One year lease $975/mo, first & last.$200 pet deposit.

Couldn't post the phone #s, you'll have to go to their website. Classifieds will be updated tomorrow, too.

Since it's just the 3 of us now we decided to go with the Oaks at Bentwater apts. Of course, if we got a sweetheart deal on Key Allegro we might would go with that!!! We're planning on moving after school is out here in June.

Well I have a couple jobs lined up in Corpus...

Tom, yes I do.. it is how I discovered a couple of the houses, like the one you listed. I am hoping the lady from Eloise Drive calls me back tomorrow... I am ready to drive down and check the place out, and if a good deal, hand over some cash for rent. My Wife would like to wait till the summer as well, so she wont have to register the kids all over, and they wont miss anything here in school. I would like to make the move over Spring Break.. but we shall see.. it maybe me down there first getting stuff settled and then at the end of the school year they come down. All is doable, just have to work it out as it comes.

I sent those listings to Muhnay.

There are also real estate brokers who know Rockport really well and my guess as houses aren't selling now as easily have clients who want to rent.

Jackie Iceton
Gwenn Lumpkin
Glenn Guilllory
Barbara Emery

I know each them well personally and they know and are involved in Rockport. You wouldn't have to pay a commission if I understand real estate correctly.

Can't hurt to call them.

Hey Mapare, I think Austin is getting a little too big for its own good. I've been here 25 yrs and have seen it change a LOT! We started camping at Goose Island State Park a few years ago and fell in love with the area. We are very excited about our move and can't wait to get there. As I stated in another post, we are going to be down this weekend for our daughters dental check up. We are planning on stopping by Bentwater for another look. I'll let you know what day/time and maybe we can meet up.

I was in Austin -thur and friday and made sure that I wasn't on the freeway during rush hour- didn't matter piles of traffic at 2:30 and 3pm. I hate traffic compare that to my street here - my definition of traffic was when I would hear a car stop and yell out "Alex please move over" My doggie liked to nap in the middle of the street its a pavement thing I guess. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining but during our "rush hour" it was hard for him to get a 10 minute nap!

Exactly Steve! The main two reasons I'm ready to move. Too much traffic and small town livin'! I have enjoyed Austin immensely, but will leave it to the younger crowd now.

Ok but don't run over my doggie.

Anyway I'm 24 miles from Corpus and there's no traffic to and fro, so I don't feel too isolated.

Been kinda quiet.

Steve I sent an e-mail off to that lady you talked too in the HEB. No reply back. So either she is really busy, or does not care to speak to me. Thanks for the help man. I may have to just come out and pitch a tent on the beach and look around for a week. If I dont find anything by then.. then I'll have to look elsewhere.

Jobs want me to have a local address, and renters want me to have a job before they rent.. so it is another one of them catch 22's.
