Uvalde High School Newsletter

Week of October 12th & October 19th

Greetings UHS!

Coyote/Lobo Nation!

We did it! We all managed to stay "a-float" for the first quarter, as our counseling department describes it. The teamwork, camaraderie, and patience among our teachers, students, and parents have carried us through this, what is still a new way of teaching and learning.

The Fall Break is here and I sincerely hope everyone gets an opportunity to decompress, recharge their enthusiasm and has an opportunity to spend time with friends and loved ones.

As we continue to move forward in starting the second quarter, students will still need to continue meeting all of their teacher's expectations in studying, completing assignments and participation. Teachers will also continue to make sure to be as understanding as possible. As always, we will keep in mind a culture of service in order to help everyone succeed. By working together, we will achieve greatness. Remember, we will need to continue trying our very best and be patient with each other in order to be as successful as possible.

As we continue the in-person instruction, we must remember to abide by the following:

  • All students MUST have a complete health screener before entering the campus.
  • All students MUST wear a face covering & follow health guidelines.
  • Outside visitors will NOT be allowed on campus.

The Coyote/Lobo Nation continues to show their dedication to our community everyday.

We will continue striving for excellence by doing everything possible for our students' success and each other. "Rep the U!"

Uvalde High School - Our Vision & Mission

UHS Vision Statement

Uvalde High School will create and foster a culture of achievement where students will become contributing members of a global society.

UHS Mission Statement

Uvalde High School will provide students the opportunities to think critically, problem solve, and become independent learners.

Uvalde High School - Believing in "U"

Uvalde High School administration, teachers and staff will help develop, implement, and maintain a culture of service that is based on the following:

Students always come first &

All students can learn and achieve.

This precept simply states that failure will not be tolerated. We will believe that when a child fails to learn, it is the system that fails – not the child. The campus (administration and the entire staff) must assume ownership and accept accountability for the learning outcomes of every child. The students shall be held no more accountable than the adults and vice versa. We will value the individual, their intrinsic value and ability to be part of their decision process in attaining a quality education. This belief will provide the foundation that promotes a culture that continuously strives for excellence.
