First Day of School
Monday, August 21, 2016
Drop off procedures for freshman for first day ONLY:
If you are dropping your student off for the first day of school in a private vehicle, please use the East side Cesar Chavez entrance of campus. There will be student volunteers and school staff in bright t-shirts that say "Link Crew" to guide your child to the Performing Arts Center (PAC). Freshman students will meet their homeroom teacher in the PAC and will be guided to their first homeroom classroom. Throughout the day, we will all help our 9th graders find their classes and feel welcome as new Maroons.
NOTE: On all other days except the first day of school, families should pick up and drop off their student(s) on the West end loop by the electronic marquee/athletic entrance. The East entrace off Cesar Chavez is reserved for school buses.
Back to School Night
Tuesday, September, 2016 (Time T.B.D.)
Mark your calendars for Back to School Night. Come meet your student's teachers and learn about our iniatives and goals for the 2016-2017 school year.
Lunch at Austin High School
Cafeteria - Full Price: $2.50, Reduced Price: $.40 (Note: prices listed are for the 2015-2016 school year and are subject to change)
We have one lunch period at Austin High, which allows students to work with groups and/or take advantage of tutoring. Students are allowed to eat in many areas of Austin High, including outside on picnic tables, in our cafeteria, and in the main commons of the school. On a nice day it is common to see kids outside playing frisbee, soccer, or enjoying a picnic. We have an open campus for seniors only and all freshman, sophomore, and juniors must remain on campus during lunch.
Teachers will provide school supply lists during the first few days of school so they can clarify with students what is expected for each class. Please ensure that your student is ready with paper and pen/pencil the first day of school
School Store - The Austin High School Store is run by our Austin High Student Council and is located across from the entrance to the cafeteria. The store is stocked with common school supplies and is open to students during lunch.
Clubs and Organizations
One of our mottos at Austin High is "Everybody is Somebody at Austin High." We have many clubs and organizations available for students and encourage ALL student to find a way to get involved during their time here. As part of Maroon Roundup on August 11, students will visit a club fair to explore their options. There is something here for everyone!
We value you as a partner in your child's education and encourage communication about your student's progress. We also encourage students to build relationships with their teachers and learn to advocate for themselves as much as possible. This prepares them for their future in the real world. However, if you feel you need to step in to help your student, please do not hesitate to contact his or her teacher by email.
