Developing Leopards through examples of love, encouragement, standards, and victory.

Time is FLYING!

Three months of school left, it's hard to believe! As you know, it has been a whirlwind of activity over the last few months. We have lots to celebrate and many more to come.

Please continue to remind your students that our teachers are available for tutorials. We encourage all students to communicate their needs and ask for help when needed.

Quick reminder- students are to have wired ear buds for class. We are seeing a lot of air pods and those similar in the hallways. These are like cell phones and confiscated for the day and result in lunch detention for your child.


CX debaters Jaxon Rasco and Kambyl Schilling are district champions, and Milan Williams and Addisyn Burrow are district runner-ups. Both teams will compete at the UIL State CX Debate Tournament in Austin at the University of Texas during spring break.

Extended Absences

If your student is going to be absent more than 3 days please follow these steps:

  • Contact the school @ 806-924-7543 to report absence and arrange time for pick-up of school work.
  • Teachers will need 24 hours to gather work
  • Teachers will provide either paper or digital work.
  • Students can email teachers or communicate through Google Classroom with questions.
  • Students are expected to complete the assignments daily, unless too sick.
  • Parents are asked to return assignments on paper after 3-4 days (if the student is out an extended time) so that the teachers can grade work in a timely manner. Assignments in Google Classroom must be submitted daily if possible.

Teachers are doing their best to keep students up to date when absent but the students must do their part as well. This includes the student working on assignments and completing readings each day if possible. Doing work during their absence is the ONLY way they are going to be able to keep up.

Cafeteria News and Forgotten Lunches

Lunches this school year will be $2.50. Free and reduced lunch prices will be adjusted accordingly on a student to student basis. You can send cash or check with your child for their lunch account or add money online. Breakfast will remain free for all students. Click here for the current menu to view our most current breakfast and lunch menu.

If your child forgets his or her lunch, there will be a cart for secondary students at the main entrance for you to drop off the lunch. Please make sure to label the bag/ lunch box with your child's name and grade level.

The New Home Leopard Secondary mission is to show love through our actions and create a positive impact on our students today, providing leadership opportunities for tomorrow, and promote productive citizens forever.
