School Tips for parents - starting off the 2016/17 school year!


A new schedule can cause anxiety even for kids and parents who have been through it many times! Extra support may be needed in the first few weeks.

Here are a few hints to help along the way:



  • Be available in the mornings and evenings for support
  • Open and consistent communication is key


  • Schedule an activity for your child and a few of their schoolmates to reconnect
  • Check school websites for 'good to know' info
  • Monitor social media for appropriate interactions
  • Study with your child for upcoming quizzes and tests


Prepare Ahead of Time

  • Adjust your sleep schedule, starting tonight!
  • Arrange for a place in the house to do homework and gather necessary materials there


Plan for Emergencies

  • Make a plan for potential conflict at school. Where will your child go and who can they talk with? Fitting in, tough classes and adjusting to the routine are all potential anxiety producers. 



The most important thing for both you and your child: Stay Positive and Have Fun!

Purpose of the Off Campus Physical Education (OCPE) Program

The purpose of the OCPE Program is to accommodate students who are making a serious effort to develop higher-level skills in a specific activity that exceed what the school district can offer through the general physical education program. The OCPE Program allows students in 7th through 12th grades to earn credits that meet the district and state physical education requirements. Students will be expected to be physically educated, along with being physically active. They will be expected to show accountability of skill development, learned physical activity and health concepts and social development through participation in their selected physical activity and written and tested assignments that are based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Physical Education.

Students cannot participate in OCPE if:

1) They take PE at their school

2) They take Athletics at their school

3) They are a high school student on their school's athletics team-this compromises UIL eligibility

Please see “2016 – 2017 OCPE Student Information and Application Packet” for more information on the OCPE program and participation requirements.
