Masks for Staff and Students
Given the continued rise in confirmed cases, it is now our expectation that all students and staff wear masks. Masks will be provided at each campus, as needed. When masks are worn consistently and correctly, they not only protect you but others as well. In general, people do not need to wear masks when outdoors. People should wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or during activities that involve sustained close contact with other people or if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised.
- A student who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, because of a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.). Please reach out to our Special Populations team if you require assistance.
- A student is not expected to wear a mask while eating or drinking but should maintain physical distance as possible. The mask should be stored in a safe, clean location and should be worn immediately thereafter.
Message from the Clinics Office:
We ask that you, as always, watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:
- Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth;
- Sore throat;
- New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with a chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline);
- Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or
- New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
If you or any member of the school community does begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the Hobby community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting 713) 842-5600

Student Activity on YES Prep Devices *IMPORTANT*
YES Prep Public Schools believes that holding students to behavioral expectations that increase safety and joy in learning will support their ability to achieve academic success, care for their community, and ultimately increase the number of students from YES Prep who succeed in college or post secondary opportunities. Committing to community expectations ensures a physically and emotionally safe learning environment that embraces the diverse communities, cultures, and identities of our students. We believe it is the responsibility of YES Prep staff to build community agreements and teach non-cognitive social skills in order to help students feel safe, seen, and empowered.
The YES Prep Student Code of Conduct outlines the behavioral expectations of students and the consequences administered for specific acts of misconduct. Disciplinary action shall draw on the professional judgement of the administrators, the seriousness of the offense, and the requirement listed in the YES Prep Student Code of Conduct. Actions of misconduct may result in suspension up to three days per occurrence or a recommendation for a disciplinary hearing, which could result placement at a disciplinary alternative program (DAEP) or expelled. All behavior on campus site or through school electronic communication system including the district internet and Microsoft Teams platform are subjected to the YES Prep Code of Conduct.
We share this reminder as it has been brought to our attention that students are engaging in inappropriate behaviors (e.g., accessing social media and other non-YES Prep sites, virtual jokes, pranks, etc.) using these platforms. YES Prep students are expected to behave in a manner that promotes care for all individuals, contributes to a safe environment for students, and provide an educational environment free of disruption. As such, please remember that YES Prep issued laptops, devices, internet, and Microsoft Teams should be used only for school approved activities, classes, and purposes. Additionally, these devices and platforms are frequently reviewed and monitored by YES Prep Public Schools.
Please be advised that any students who are not adhering to these expectations outlined in the YES Prep Student Handbook will be held to the consequences outlined in the Code of Conduct. It should be noted that, depending on the egregiousness of the conduct, authorities may be called. Moving forward, all students are expected to use these devices and platforms appropriately.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and time. We appreciate your involvement in helping students understand how their actions have impact on other people. We know that your support will help our students continue to grow and become more successful. For additional recommendations, please review the tips below.
Recommendations for Families:
- Talk with your student about setting boundaries and what is/ is not appropriate for Microsoft Teams or YES Prep Devices.
- Monitor your student’s activity. If possible, work alongside your student and familiarize yourself with how your student is using technology.
- Review your student’s activity. Review any messages, assignments, internet history, or other activities that your student is completing at the beginning or end of each day.
- Talk with your students about safe technology and internet use beyond YES Prep platforms. This includes social media best-practices, privacy and location settings, and the sharing of personal information. For more information visit https://crime-stoppers.org/cyber-safety/
