We have completed another amazing week at Austin High. Check out the Athletic Highlights below to stay abreast of the most recent Maroon points of pride. As we begin to prepare for Monday I wanted to share a few friendly reminders.
Melvin Bedford, “Loyal Forever”
Volleyball started off the season with a 3rd place finish in the Jason Lander's Tournament, then went up to Allen Texas for the Texas Open tournament. We won our first home match vs San Marcos, but lost in our district opener vs Lake Travis. We are on the road this next week playing Weiss, Bowie and Anderson. Our next home match is vs Johnson Tuesday, September 6th.
Our Austin High Football team played their season opener last Thursday against Stony Point High school. Our Maroons performed with class and continue to represent Austin High well. Next week, we take on Round Rock Westwood at Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex at 7:00pm. We are very proud of our Maroon Band, Red Jackets, and Austin High Cheer squad for their performance last Thursday, as well. Students have put in a lot of hard work preparing for the season and we salute them on their performances.
Our Varsity cross-country team had their first meet on Saturday. Congratulations to the boys' varsity team for earning 2nd place with runners Luke Batiansila, Ben Hamilton, Ulysses Boulton, Luke Bone, Ben Wilson, and Kenny Sabisch. The JV boys came in 3rd, with Lucas Suarez finishing 3rd place overall! The varsity and JV girls teams had strong finishes - Maggie Stewart, Ivy Baker, Lilly Graushaupt, Margaret Worsham, and Ella Powell rep'ing our varsity team with Roshni Dhruva, Kyra Moore, Caroline Shaw right up there gearing for Varsity. With a solid start to our season, our eyes and training are focused on making it to State! We are so proud of our cross-country runners; way to represent Austin High this weekend!
STUDENT ID EXPECTATIONS AT AHS
Wearing a badge is a standard workplace expectation and one of several key practices that contributes to a safe and orderly campus. Students, staff and visitors are required to wear an official ID badge at all times and in plain view while on campus. Badges are also necessary to sign in & out of campus, purchase cafeteria items, borrow library books, receive technology support, use hall passes, and for other classroom or campus procedures.
Rationale: In order to maintain a safe and secure environment, all staff and students are required to wear an ID.
2021-2022 Accountability Rating
I am pleased to inform you Austin High was rated an overall “A” performance for the 2021-2022 school year by TEA. We also earned 3 academic distinction designations: ELA/Reading, Comparative Academic Growth, and Postsecondary Readiness.
Austin High has made a few changes since last school year. The Main Entrance is now located on the west side of campus. The Main Office, Attendance Office, and Health Room have been relocated directly in front of the new west side Main Entrance (Room 148). Please call the main line at 512-414-2505 if you have any questions or concerns.
We ask that ALL visitors park and enter on the WEST SIDE of the building. All exterior doors will remain locked at all times. Visitors may request entrance to the school by pushing the button on the call box located by the exterior door farthest to the left at the west side Main Entrance. Upon entering the building, all visitors need to check in to the new Main Office to receive a visitor label via the Raptor system before moving further into the building. ALL VISITOR LABELS MUST BE WORN AND VISIBLE THROUGHOUT THE VISIT TO OUR CAMPUS.
Visitors should park on the west side of campus. The east side of campus, including the parking lots and the circle drive, is designated for staff, buses, and students with parking permits.
Please assist us in improving our campus traffic flow by following the drop-off/pick-up procedures.
Morning drop off: Designated on the WEST SIDE of campus only.
Afternoon pick up: Parents are encouraged to pick up on the WEST SIDE of campus.
