Ready for Success, Daily Attendance 

Champions should be logged in or at school everyday by 7:45 AM. The class will start promptly at 8:00 am. Attendance is a major part of our school funding and allows us the opportunity to provide more for our champions. Also, when champions are in class they are learning.

School Safety 

San Antonio Prep considers the health and well-being of our students and staff to be of the utmost importance.

We will continue to practice our COVID screenings, mask wearing, outdoor breaks, social distancing when possible and frequent sanitizing. We also have a day and night crew to support with deep cleaning. We also: 

  • Limit class sizes to a max of 18 students (3 per table) 
  • Staggered breaks
  • All meals in the classroom (including breakfast) 
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
