Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We look forward to planning your child’s school career at Horn ES.
Our meet the teacher event will take place on Thursday, August 24th. For grades Pre-K & Kindergarten, the event will begin at 8:00 A.M. in the cafeteria. For first grade, the teacher event will begin at 8:45 A.M. in the classrooms. For second through fifth grades, the meet the teacher event will begin at 10:00 A.M. in the classrooms.
Early bird market will be open from 9:15 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to sign up to volunteer, learn about PTO Committees and how to get involved, discover our after-school program, community offerings and much more! The market will be cashless, so please bring a credit or debit card to pay for uniforms, dress down bands and more! Please consider joining our PTO as it provides many opportunities for parents to get involved with your child’s school activities.
Parents will receive an e-mail from their child’s new teacher on or before August 23, 2023. The first day of school will begin on August 28, 2023, at 7:30 A.M. Please make sure that your child attends Horn on the first day of school, or their spot can be given to the next student on the waitlist if capping takes place from the district level.
School starts at 7:30 A.M. daily; breakfast, at no cost, is available starting at 7:20 A.M. This year we will begin instruction and announcements at 7:30 A.M. Students can grab it and go to class as they enter school. Your child is tardy starting at 7:41 A.M. and will need a permit to go to class.
Excused absences include student illness, family illness or death, dangerous weather conditions, quarantine, student participation in principal-approved school related activities, or emergencies. However, based on the Texas attendance policy, it does not matter if your child is excused or unexcused. Any absence regardless of the situation will count as an absence. For purposes of remedial support and/or retention it does not matter whether it is an excused or unexcused absence. The state looks at a percentage of days missed throughout the school year. Attendance matters, and we need your child here each, and every day.
Horn ES begins dismissal at 2:50 P.M. and ends promptly at 3:05 P.M. Please pick up no later than 3:05 P.M. as the front office staff leaves promptly after dismissal.
In support of our commitment to excellence in education; we invite you to be a partner in your child’s learning by meeting your child’s teacher again during our Open House and PTO meeting the evening of September 28th. More information will be given closer to the event.
We have several exciting activities coming up soon, so please don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and stay connected by checking your e-mails from PTO and Horn Elementary. This year we celebrate our 75th Anniversary, so we have a lot of really great events coming up this year!
