Welcome Back, Coyotes!
What an exciting year we have ahead of us!  We will be using the Intersession Schedule this first week of school because San Jacinto College has not started yet.  Remember that during Intersession, 9th and 10th graders will report to the Student Union during the time slots of their college classes.  Upperclassmen can be in any of our designated five areas during their college classes.  Clear Horizons teachers will be there to supervise students.
