Message from the Principal
Greetings Coyote/Lobo Nation!
The entire district will continue to participate in virtual learning this week. We continue to be vigilant and hope for the best to those of the Coyote/Lobo family that have been affected by the pandemic. During these times we all need to do our part, be considerate of one another and uplift each other up. These challenges will only make us stronger.
Together, we will continue to move forward. Our District and campus leadership will continue to be monitoring the data to continue making the decisions that are in the best interest of the Coyote/Lobo community. It will be our resiliency and fortitude that will make us rise to the top.
It is imperative that our students are actively engaged and participating in their virtual classrooms. This will help the campus target our students so that at the end the year, they will be on or above grade level. The following are couple of key items that are important to ensure that students are on track academically:
- Students MUST participate in classes daily. The best way to engage students is through active instruction.
- Students MUST submit class assignments and exams on time. This is best done though consistent teacher, student, and parent communication.
We are working on continuing to provide support in Schoology for both parents and teachers. Please reach out to campus administration if you need to troubleshoot. We look forward to providing the best virtual instruction possible. Again, I ask everyone to continue in doing their part. The Coyote/Lobo Nation will continue to show their dedication to our community everyday by doing so. Let's strive for excellence, commitment, and pride. Stay safe and thank you for your trust and support! "Rep the U!"

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.
