PARKING

Over the last several months the Board has received several complaints

about vehicles parking on the streets within Lone Oak. For the overall

safety of our residents, as well as ensuring emergency vehicles are able to

quickly maneuver through our streets, the Board has asked the deputies

patrolling Lone Oak to address any/all vehicle violations; including

speeding and parking. Section 7 of the Texas Drivers Handbook covers

parking and states:

DO NOT PARK VEHICLES:

• In front of a public or private driveway.

• Within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.

• Within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection.

• Within 30 feet upon the approach to any flashing signal, stop sign, yield

sign or other traffic control signal located at the side of a roadway.

• Do not park more than 18 inches from the curb or in a way that obstructs

the flow of traffic.

For more information, a copy of the Texas Drivers Handbook can be found

at www.txdps.state.tx.us

DEED RESTRICTIONS

• Please make sure to address yard care such as mowing, edging, removal

of weeds and trimming of overgrown shrubs and bushes.

• Architectural Review - prior to starting any project, please review the

Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Lone Oak.

Please remember that all improvements to the exterior of your home

or other structures in your yard must be approved by the Architectural

Review Committee (ARC) prior to commencement. The ARC forms are

available from Crest.

If you have a concern or need to report a violation, please contact Lexi at

Crest, the phone number is 281-945-4615.

TRASH PICK-UP DAYS

Wednesdays and Saturdays are the Lone Oak scheduled trash pickup

days. Please do not set your garbage out early. We continue to see

many residents put trash out 2-3 days before trash day. Please keep your

garbage out of sight until the night before or the day of the scheduled

pick up. Also, please be courteous and do not block the sidewalks with

your bags and or trash bins and remove them in a timely manner after

pick up.

HIT THE BRAKES…

Speeding in Lone Oak has been a hot topic of discussion lately. There have

been numerous reports of speeding and of running stop signs. We have

notified the Sheriff of these reports and have asked that tickets be issued

to offenders. Several surrounding schools and residents have purchased

kid alert safety signs to be placed in front of their homes and or buildings

to remind people to slow down. If you would like to purchase a safety

sign, here are a couple websites that sell the signs, www.kaplantoys.com

and www.discountschoolsupply.com

LONE OAK CRIME WATCH NEEDS YOUR HELP

Lone Oak’s Crime Watch Chairperson would like to encourage more

residents to become involved in the Lone Oak Crime Watch Program.

More Block Captains are needed! Each Block Captain is responsible

for contacting the residents who are assigned to them when there is

information to pass along regarding incidents in Lone Oak or surrounding

areas.

Most Block Captains set up their distribution list via email, so it is important

for residents to know who their Block Captain is. The time required is

minimal - attend a few periodic meetings, distribute information, be

aware of happenings in your neighborhood and host a National Night

Out Party once a year! If you would like to volunteer or would just like

more information, please contact your Board.

CFISD STUDENTS’ WORK SELECTED TO HOUSTON

RODEO SCHOOL ART AUCTION

Three student artists had their artwork selected to advance to the

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) School Art auction.

Cypress Woods High School freshman Magdalena Baughman (Bridger

& Poco), Jersey Village High School junior Amy Muery (Laying Hen) and

Hamilton Middle School eighth grade student Ravine Cohen (Sunkissed

Stallions) each had their work chosen to advance.

“Having student artwork chosen as the top entry for the Houston

Livestock Show and Rodeo is already a huge achievement, but to have

it selected for auction is an added bonus and rare opportunity,” said

Lee Carrier, CFISD coordinator of visual arts. “I am proud of our CFISD

art students for receiving this honor. I would like to thank the HLSR

School Art Committee for continuing to support CFISD’s K-12 th grade art

students. I would also like to thank art teachers of the auction students

for providing this contest opportunity at their campuses.”

Since 1965, the HLSR has recorded more than 9.4 million entries to

its School Art Program. HLSR provides students the opportunity to

earn scholarships, visit workshops and a chance to have their artwork

displayed at the Hayloft Gallery during the Rodeo itself.

Art Program, visit their website: www.rodeohouston.com/Educational-

MENTAL HEALTH INTERVENTION TEAM EARNS

SCHOOL SAFETY AWARD

The CFISD Mental Health Intervention Team (MHIT) will be honored by

the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) and receive the Positive School

Climate and Prevention Programs Award of the center’s School Safety

Spotlight Program. The MHIT will be featured in the center’s upcoming

quarterly newsletter as well as the TxSSC social media platforms.

The School Safety Spotlight Program is designed to recognize and

promote schools, districts and individuals that foster education and

learning through safe and secure campuses. Categories include

Collaborative Community Partnerships, Staff Development and Training,

Positive School Climate and Prevention Programs, Student-Led Groups

or Programs and Outstanding Individual Service. Submissions and

nominations are reviewed based on knowledge, creativity and originality,

engagement, impact and evidence-based practices.

The TxSSC recognizes the top-scoring submissions from each category.

CFISD’s Mental Health Intervention Team promotes and supports the

mental health and well-being of students, families, staff and community

members through prevention, intervention and safety. Established during

the 2018-2019 school years by the Board of Trustees and Superintendent

Dr. Mark Henry, the MHIT is a collaborative and partnership among three

departments-Guidance and Counseling, Psychological Services and

the CFISD Police Department. The team is comprised of four licensed

professional counselors, two licensed psychologists and two mental

health police officers.

All nominations submitted through the third (Nov. 1, 2020 to Jan. 31,

2021) and fourth quarters (Feb. 1-April 30, 2021) will be considered for

recognition at the TxSSC School Safety Conference, to be held June 27-

Box Office: 713-526-2721

Hours: 10 AM-6 PM, Monday-Friday

We have done everything we can to try and reopen our doors, including

becoming the first theater in the country to install hospital grade UV

lights in our air filtration system. We even offered a safe and distanced

indoor concert as well as an indoor offering from our educational touring

unit this past fall. And when those projects proved financially challenging

and COVID numbers spiked again, we created “Light Up the Lot” and

moved all our programming outdoors.

We’ve never given up. We never will give up. But due to circumstances

beyond our control, we find ourselves needing to pivot once more.

Which brings us to the announcement of our virtual season. Go to www.

April Gardening Tips

Mulch - If possible, buy Bagged Mulch. Bagging helps eliminate a great

many pests that die from various causes while in the bag. When you buy

‘loose’ mulch that is trucked to your home, you are also buying ants,

roaches, termites, etc…” Spend a little more on bagged material and save

lots of future pest problems. Keep your mulch at least 4” - 6” below the top

of your homes exposed foundation edge/side. This will aid in minimizing

pests in your home and allow for quick and accurate termite inspections.

Shrubs, Flowers and ground covers - Trim all shrubs/plants at least 12” -

18” back from your home. Do your best to create a plant free zone that is

18” - 24” wide around your home. The exception is your lawn - it can grow

up next to the slab as long as you keep it 4” - 6” below the top of the slab.

The most conducive to termite infestation are groundcover plantings,

growing high against your homes exterior or (especially) ivy that grows

on your walls.

Trees - Spray your trees at least twice annually. The spring spray

eliminates overwintering pests and fungi while preparing trees to resist

the pest onslaught of summer with residual pesticides. The fall spray also

kills pests from the summer, prevents most fungi from occurring over the

winter and puts your valuable asset off to a healthy winter’s dormancy.

Lawn - Spring is the perfect time to do a fungicide treatment to stop

brown patch in its tracks along with other fungi. If your lawn is thin and

weak in some areas, here are some important fundamentals: a) lawn

aeration” b) fertilization” c) weed control.

Most important is proper watering:

• Water once per week (unless you get a 1/2” rain or more - then do not

water.)

• Water heavily (1” - 2”) for total lawn coverage.

• In severe drought, water every 5th day.

• Water from 5 AM to 7 AM in the morning - NOT AT NIGHT.

• A heavy deep weekly watering makes the turf grow deeper, stronger

and more drought resistant roots.

• Less watering also saves you money!!

WHEN IS EARTH DAY?

This observance always falls on April 22 nd . On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic

of fresh air, contact with the soil and companionship with nature! Walk

through the woods in search of emerging wildflowers and green moss.

Go outside, no matter what the weather!

Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an

interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970,

San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord

Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration.

McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose

April 22 nd . Millions of people participated and today Earth Day continues

to be widely celebrated with events on both dates.

The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth

Day. Other Earth Day activities and ideas are: Plant wildflowers, Go

native! Plants thrive when they’re natural to your area, bring nature into

the garden with plants that attract butterflies, try an organic vegetable

garden and conserve water.
