Dear Parents,

We will be starting to allow parent visitors for lunch beginning next week. Parents may only come on the week they are assigned. Weeks are assigned according to the student's last name. The second semester schedule is below. There will be no exceptions. Please understand that we must continue to limit the amount of visitors in the building due to the rising number of Covid 19 cases in Harris County. We appreciate your understanding and support.
