Greetings, Aviator Families! It is hard to believe that next week will be the last week of January. We are proud of the work that your student’s continue to accomplish each day.
We know that COVID-19 continues to impact our school community, and we are working hard to ensure that your student is safe at school each day. To assist us with keeping our school community safe, we take the following actions at school:
- It is the expectation that all students, staff, and visitors on campus wear a face mask.
- Face masks are available at the Front Office if needed.
- Our custodial staff cleans our school on a regular schedule paying close attention to high-touch areas.
- Hand Sanitizer is available throughout the school and in classrooms.
To help continue to keep our school community safe, we ask that our Aviator Families stay mindful if your student has COVID-19 symptoms, and if your student tests positive, please contact the school as soon as possible.
Together, we can work together to keep our school community safe.
Have a wonderful weekend!

YES Prep Hobby High School Opening August 2022!
As part of our safety and security process, we ask for all staff and students to wear a Photo ID while on campus. Students received one free photo ID this semester. If your Aviator needs to purchase a new photo ID, please send them with $5 to cover the cost of the materials needed to print the identification. Students who do not purchase a new photo ID will receive a daily temporary ID and a demerit each time they need this temporary ID. These demerits lead to detentions.
The application lottery is still open for the 2022-2023 and we still have space for students in 6th – 8th grade. Please share the application website with you family, friends, and neighbors and let them know why you believe Hobby is the best school for your student!
COVID-19 Health and Safety Reminders:
As we start the second semester, we know that COVID-19 continues to impact our school and broader Houston community.
We encourage Aviators to stay home when they are not feeling well and ask that you please contact the school at 713-842-5600 if your student is going to be absent.
If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please contact us as soon as you are able. Students with a positive COVID-19 test result may return to school when:
- Ten (10) days have passed since a positive COVID-19 test result or symptom onset, AND
- The students’ symptoms have improved, AND
- The student is fever-free for 24 hours without medication. A “fever” is considered a temperature 100.0 higher.
Ways to Keep Our Community Safe
- Wearing a mask is the expectation while on campus. Students should continue to wear a mask on the bus, at school, and while at school-sponsored events.
- We continue to clean our school on a regular schedule and pay close attention to the cleaning of high-traffic areas.
- We ask families to please conduct an at-home health screening each day to ensure that your student, and all YES Prep community members, stay safe and COVID-free.
- Lastly, vaccination is currently the best protection against COVID-19. Health officials encourage everyone 5 years and older to get vaccinated and for those eligible, a booster dose. YES Prep continues to offer COVID-19 vaccines via Legacy Community Health clinics located at various YES Prep campuses. Schedule your child's vaccination with Legacy by clicking here.

YES Prep athletic events:
Events will be operating at 50% capacity to maximize the health and safety of all. Concessions will not be sold, and outside food / drink will not be permitted. Once your Aviators game has concluded, you will be required to exit the gym and your athletes will be escorted out with their coach. Seating is limited and on a first come first serve basis. All tickets will now be purchased through TicketSpicket for YES Prep athletic events. If your Aviator is currently involved in athletics, Coach Shannon sent out communication earlier this week with steps on how to purchase your tickets. Your athlete also received a handout at practice detailing how to pre-purchase and redeem your tickets at the door. If you have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
