SA Prep Families,  

“Taking a break can lead to breakthroughs.” ― Russell Eric Dobda

We hope your break was joyful, restful and everything else you needed it to be. A special shoutout to the champions that chose to spend some of the break with our coaching staff at our first Sportsfest. 

We hope that all our champions have come back recharged and ready to get back to work! As reminder SA Prep will continue to require require staff, champions and any visitors to wear a mask will on campus. 

                    Be safe, wash your hands, and (continue) to wear a mask.

COVID, Dashboard
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.
Academic  Update
 
STAAR
Per TEA, Texas schools will continue to take the STAAR test in grades 3 and up at the end of this academic year. STAAR tests will be one of the many things that show your child's academic progress and achievement this year. All testing will take place IN-PERSON per TEA requirements. Specific testing dates will be communicated as we get closer to the Spring, but we wanted to share that NO at-home testing will be available

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.
