• Good Afternoon Horn Families! 

    We are so excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! As we gear up to welcome our students back to campus, we recognize that along with the anticipation of getting back to in-person learning, there is a bit of uncertainty and apprehension around how we will keep everyone safe. Know that safety continues to be our number one priority. This will be another year of flexibility as we navigate current circumstances, but we know this will be an amazing year for Horn students.  

    Please welcome our new teachers and staff to Horn Elementary: Lizzy Snelling (Music Teacher), Catarina Hoyos (SLC TREK Teaching Assistant), Clarence Myers (Wrap-Around Specialist), Bianca Pomare (SLC ALT Teaching Assistant), and Celeste Guzman (Front Office Clerk). We are equally pleased to have some staff members transitioning into new roles: Megan Mitchell (Pre-K Teacher), Shelia Bagley (First Grade Teacher), Kathy Dromgoole (Third Grade Teacher), and Becca Hutchins (Library Services). 

    Below are a few important pieces of information: 

    - The district has released a Back to School Plan that can be found HERE: https://www.houstonisd.org/ReadySetGo  

    - Like all of the HISD district guidance documents over the past year and a half, we will do our best to ensure you are aware of any changes and additions.  

     - A Horn Family Information Meeting will be held via Microsoft TEAMS on Tuesday August 17, 2021 at 4:30pm. At that time, we will discuss any updates to district plans and campus policies and procedures for meet the teacher and the beginning of the year. Please use this link to join the Live Meeting: Horn Welcome Back 2021-2022. We will also send it out again as we get closer to the event.  

     -  As of now, Meet the teacher and Early Bird Market will be held on Friday, August 20, 2021 in the morning. Currently the plan is for a drive-thru event. Watch for details as we confirm plans next week.  

    - Horn will have a uniform this year. Please visit https://www.houstonisd.org/Page/182959 to review the policy.  

    - According to current Texas state guidelines, it is required for all students, staff and visitors to wear a mask indoors, and it is strongly recommended to wear masks outside. Know that mask policies are not determined by individual campuses, they are determined by the state and district. The district plan indicates that masks are required for all students and staff.  

    - Be on the lookout for an email from your new teacher on August 18, 2021 and other beginning of the year items coming out soon.  

    - For up-to-date information, make sure to like us on Facebook and subscribe to the Horn PTO newsletter 

    - The first day of school will begin on August 23 at 7:30am.  Please ensure that your child attends Horn on the first day of school, or their spot will be given to the next student on the wait list.  

    Thank you for your patience as we prepare for a new school year. There is a lot of information coming forward and we will always share with you any new and current communication. As always, our goal is to have a safe and wonderful year for our Horn family.  

     

    Best,
