Early Student Pick-up
We have seen that a high number of students are being picked up early from school. This means that students are missing important class time and are risking falling behind in those courses.
*If you pick your student up early for an appointment, it MUST be before 3 PM and provide proper documentation. If not, that absence will be marked as UNEXCUSED in your student's record.
You must have a valid ID present and the person picking up must be listed under emergency contacts for the student. The emergency contact list can be found in Skyward. Updates to this list can be made on the Back to School Forms. Again, please be reminded that ealy pick-up ends at 3 PM.
If your student is absent due to a doctor's appointment, illness or court appearance, please remember to send an excuse note or documentation with your child within 2 days of return. You can also email an absent excuse note to Ms. Salazar at Oneida.Salazar@yesprep.org. If your child is out due to testing positive for COVID, please call the front office at (713) 967-7800 to inform them and send documentation upon their return, so the absence can be coded appropriately as being ill with COVID.
Please remember if your student is experiencing symptoms of any kind, to please keep them home until they are well enough to return.
Back To School Forms
If you haven't already, please complete the Back To School forms for your children! All returning and new students to YES Prep will need to complete this process. Back to School forms are available through your Skyward Family Access acount by selecting the tile named 'Back to School Forms 21-22'. You can complete these on a computer or on your mobile device via the browser (you cannot complete the forms in the Skyward app).
Please make sure your student has their ID on a daily basis. Students who do not have their IDs will receive a Temp ID along with a demerit. Students with more than 3 Demerits will receive Detention.
Students must bring their Laptops charged every day.
Students who forget their laptops will be asked to call parents to see if they can drop it off at school.
Cellphones are not allowed to be used during school hours. If a student is caught with a cellphone, it will be confiscated and held at the front office until the end of the day where a parent/guardian must pick it up.
