Back to School

Message from the Principal

Hello White Oak Family! We are ECSTATIC to welcome you back to campus! Last year was an incredible year for White Oak’s campus, probably our best yet! We are excited and ready for a great 2019-2020 school year. This is a huge year for our campus. At the conclusion of this year, we will complete our final year of growth and will graduate our first class of seniors. There is much to be excited about, and I am grateful to have all of you who have been on the journey with us the last few years as we transition into our new phase as a FULLY GROWN OUT CAMPUS! Over the next two years, YES Prep White Oak will be working towards becoming an A school and ensuring our students are college ready. The staff at White Oak are fully committed to this goal, but we can’t do this work without you. As we enter the 2019-2020 school year, there are three things that I request of all of our families: • Stay Connected. • Get Involved. • Partnership. We will not hit this goal without your support, and we look forward to working with you and making YES Prep White Oak the best school in Northwest Houston! Thank you in advance for all of your support! Sincerely, Ms. Greene

Legal guardians must update their child’s immunizations. When enrolling your child in school, be sure to bring a signed record of your child’s current immunizations, signed to enroll provisionally if the required immunization process has begun. Your child can remain in school after 30 days in they have provided YES Prep with a record indicating you are:  

1) in the process of receiving immunizations OR  

2) bringing an affidavit indicating your child cannot receive vaccines or is choosing not to receive the recommended vaccines.  

If you cannot provide YES Prep with the immunization records or one of the two above documents. YES Prep may require the student to stay home until the immunizations are complete. 

Some organizations offer free immunizations to eligible children through their regular healthcare providers such as Texas Vaccinations for Children. Others, like a few branches of the Houston Public Library, offer free immunizations during specific hours on certain days of the month.
