A Message from the Principal

Hobby Family,


Happy New Year! New Year, New semester and great things are in store for us! Jeans and College shirts for the first day back.


Given the circumstances we live in now, as a Professional Learning Community, we will be prepared for anything that comes our way.


Please have have your child bring fully charged Chromebook to school everyday and be prepared to log into Schoology. Wearing of masks is strongly encouraged and we will space out students as much as possible. Students will be asked to assist in our sanitation and safety protocols as needed.


Here are some important Guidelines that the district has provided for you and your family to follow.

  • The use of facemasks is still strongly encouraged for all students, staff, and visitors while indoors at all District facilities.

  • If you or your child is symptomatic or ill, stay home and/or consult with your medical provider. Individuals who have confirmed cases of COVID-19 will be asked to isolate for a minimum of 5 days or until symptom-free. We will continue to ask that unvaccinated or individuals living in the same home as a COVID-positive individual also remain isolated for 5 days. Review the City of San Antonio Metro Health District’s Health Advisory issued Dec. 28 for more information.

  • As a reminder, free COVID-19 testing is available from Metro Health at Farris Stadium (8400 North Loop 1604 W, San Antonio, TX 78249) and Inselmann Field (kiosk near ticket booth) at the Hardin Athletic Complex (7001 Culebra Rd, San Antonio, TX 78238). Appointments must be scheduled.

  • Strongly consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine for you and all eligible individuals in your home. Everyone ages 5 and up are now eligible for a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The District is hosting a vaccine location on Jan. 2 at the Northside Activity Center (7001 Culebra Rd., 78238) from 10 AM to 3 PM. No appointment is needed. You may also call 311 for vaccine information and resources related to COVID-19.


It will be cold tomorrow and traffic will be bad, so be prepared.

Praise, Promote & Protect.

As always, You Matter!


Lawrence Carranco
