Please complete the form only if you know that your child WILL NOT be returning and have him/her return it to the counseling office.

Thank you for your assistance.

REPEAT ANNOUNCEMENT: News from our Nurse

All 6th grade parents should have received a letter in the mail stating which shots their child needs for next year. Shots are due by the first day of school, Aug.22, 2016.

If your student has already had the required shots, please send in a current immunization record or ask the dr. office to fax it to Tex Hill Atten: Nurse McVay at 210-494-2380. We would like to thank the parents that have already submitted the shot records for next school year.

UPDATED: 8th grade celebration

As recognition and congratulations to our 8th grade students our wonderful PTSA sponsors an 8th grade celebration every year. This year the 8th grade celebration will be held at the newly acquired NEISD sports park. This will be a fun event for students to relax, have fun with friends and play some games. Parent permission slips will go home on May 13th during 8th grade English and all permission slips must be returned to 8th grade English by Friday, May 20th. Students will not be permitted to attend if they do not have a signed parent permission slip.

Special Notice: This event is a reward for a great 8th grade year. If any 8th grader is assigned In School Suspension from April 13th through the end of the school year, they will not be able to attend and participate in this event.
