PARENTS - ATTENDANCE MATTERS!

Please send your child to school each day! Students should only stay home if they:

-Have fever

-Had fever in the last 24 hours

-Have COVID

-Were directly exposed to COVID and are showing symptoms with test results pending

Parents, in order for these absences to be within the TEA COVID Leave, we must have your child's test results, both positive and negative and the dates must align within the dates of the absences.


Remember, all students are required to be in attendance for 90% of the school year to get credit for that grade level and avoid any truancy filings.


90% is the STATE REQUIREMENT for the school year, for every child, PreK & K included!

Lion Players Theatre Company to present “Pinkalicious” Oct. 21-25 at Spring High School

Spring High School’s Lion Players Theatre Company is presenting its annual fall children’s show on Oct. 21, 22, 23 and 25. This year’s show is “Pinkalicious,” based on the popular children’s book by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann.


The play tells the colorful, humorous and heartwarming tale of its heroine, Pinkalicious, who loves the color pink so much that she can’t stop eating her favorite pink cupcakes until she herself turns pink – from head to toe! Pinkalicious is thrilled to find herself turning her favorite color, but her parents and her doctor aren’t so sure. With lessons about family, love and acceptance, and learning to be yourself, “Pinkalicious” promises something for everyone.


Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Oct. 21, 22, 23 and 25 (with no performance on Sunday). Additional matinee performances will take place on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. All performances will take place in the performing arts center at Spring High School, 19428 I-45, Spring, TX 77373. Each performance of the play will last approximately 45 minutes.


Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $5 for children 5-12. They can be purchased at the box office before each performance, and online at LionPlayersTheatreCompany.com.
