Back to School

Message from the Principal 

Welcome back! We are SO excited to kick off the 2019-2020 school year with all of our great Northside families!  This year, we are proud to announce that we were rated a B school by the TEA, and we are pushing to be an A school in the coming years!

As I enter my 7th year at YES Prep Northside, I am continually humbled and honored to get to work alongside such great teachers, but most importantly, I am honored to get to work with all of our students.  Thank you for trusting us with your children each and every day—we understand you have a choice in your education pathways, and we are grateful you’ve chosen the PRIDE as your family.  I look forward to successful partnerships with each of you!

Best Wishes on a great year!

Maureen Israel, Principal

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. For more information about required immunizations see the Immunization Fact Sheet or call Health Services at (713) 349-7423.
