  • Welcome to school Year 2021-2022

    Posted by Agnes Perry on 8/21/2021 1:25:00 PM

     

    DeBakey Parents and Students

     

    Our 2021-2022 school year begins Monday, August 23rd.   All students are expected to arrive each day no later than 7:45 am and will be dismissed by 3:30 pm.  Please allow extra travel time for increased traffic the first day of school.

     

    We are asking parents, who are dropping students off or picking them up, to enter on Pressler Street, follow the orange placed cones through the parking lot, drop off students in the parking lot allowing students to enter the Main Entrance of the school from the parking lot by way of the crosswalk.  Parents will then exit in front of the school to Montclair.  To keep traffic flowing, parents should not stop in the drive lane, crosswalk or the walkway to unload or pick up students. 

     

    Parents will not be allowed in the building unless there is a medical issue.  Students will be picked up after-school using the same system.  In the afternoon, parents will line up in the parking lot in the designated loading parallel parking spaces in the parking lot, not the driveway immediately in front of the Main Entrance.  Students are expected to go to the parking lot to board vehicles.  A video is available on the DeBakey Website.

     

    Students are expected to be in the designated uniform including an appropriate mask covering their nose and mouth.

     

    Students will be provided breakfast in the morning, midday lunch, and an afternoon snack each day.  Students should bring their own water bottles.  We have bottle filling stations throughout the building.

     

    To use the elevators, students must have a pass issued by the school nurse, Ms. Ali. All other students must use the stairs.

     

    Students may pick up a copy of their class schedule in the cafeteria Monday morning.  Students who wish to request corrections in their schedule should submit their request online beginning Monday, August 23 after 8:00 am.

     

    Students who need a laptop should register online for a time to pick up their laptop.    

     

    Please refer to the website for relevant information regarding school opening, uniforms, schedule corrections, and more. We look forward to seeing you Monday, August 23rd.

Finalists are selected from the submitted materials to compete in the second round for interviewing skills. Katrina excelled in both rounds and took 1st Place in the Regional and State competitions for this event. She is advancing to the National competition for Jobs Seeking Skills. Congratulations Katrina for all you have accomplished!!!!! We are truly proud of you and we wish you the best in the National Competition.

     

    Rhea Phatak  Paul Daniel

    Senior Rhea Phatak and junior Paul Daniel recently competed in the 2021 Virtual Texas HOSA Conference. Rhea competed in HOSA Human Growth and Development, a test only event. She was given 90 minutes to complete a 100-item multiple choice test. Out of all the students who participated, Rhea was awarded fourth place.

    Paul participated in the HOSA Prepared Speaking competition. The topic was “Unlocking Your Potential.” Paul won first place in the area competition and third place in the state.  He will go on to compete at the national level. Paul’s winning entry can be viewed here.

    Our students’ efforts continue to amaze us. We are proud that they have been able to overcome the challenges of the 2021 school year to compete with their peers across the state of Texas.  With young leaders like Rhea and Paul on the horizon, the future is bright.
