Updated Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

No Parking Zone Reminder

As you drive through the drop-off/pick-up lines in front of the school on 17th Street or by the back pavilion on 18th Street, please be mindful to not block any driveways.

As a reminder, the area on 17th Street from the corner of Studewood to the corner of Beverly Street is a "No Parking Zone." The school has requested HISD Police to be present, and tickets will be given to anyone parking in this area.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep our students and school community safe!

Cold Weather Provisions

If the temperature is below 50 degrees in the morning, all students will go to their homeroom classes starting at 7:15. We will have staff in the front and in the hallways. Teachers will not be outside but will be in their classrooms by 7:25. The students will be in the classrooms by themselves until 7:25, but we will have staff in the hallways to monitor. On these days, teachers will need to check each student's temperature in their classroom.
