Thank you for your flexibility and please let Ms. Calzado know if you have any other questions regarding the change.

Safety Reminder

We'd like to remind everyone of the importance of taking precautions for theft prevention. There was an incident on campus last Friday in which a laptop was stolen from a vehicle during an evening volleyball game. Our security cameras recorded a woman who parked in the middle school parking lot, walked to multiple cars and pulled on the door handles. She was able to enter this particular vehicle and exit with the laptop. She then left the premises, returned a few minutes later and was able to enter a second vehicle, but appeared to exit empty handed. This footage is being released to the Houston Police Department.


Area police departments remind us that day cares, schools and shopping malls are high target areas. Some theft prevention tips are:



  • Hide and remove valuables, including phones, charging cables, backpacks and packages. Women are reminded to carry their purses with them when leaving their vehicles.
  • Never leave your car running.
  • Lock your car and take your keys.
