Sam Houston Elementary Mission
From Principal Cavazos
Welcome to Back to School!
We hope you and your family had a restful and safe summer! It is time for back to school! We have a great year planned for your child and we cannot wait to see them.
Your child’s safety is our priority. We look forward to working together to keep all children safe upon our return to school. We are following these health and safety practices at school:
- Wear a mask
- Social distancing as is possible
- Washing/sanitizing hands throughout the day
Our doors will open at 7 am each morning to begin receiving students. Breakfast is served from 7-7:30 a.m. each morning.
It is important that your child arrives on time to school each day. Our instruction begins at 7:40 a.m. The end of our instructional day is at 3:10 p.m.
We look forward to a safe and productive school year for your child! Should you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at the school. We will be glad to help!
Have a great start to the school year!
