Stages of Enrollment

While The State of Texas has given schools the ability to resume full classroom sizes while following COVID-19 protocol, we have opted to maintain smaller class sizes during the 2020-2021 school year to ensure safety. We have slowly been increasing our group sizes. Currently, we are operating at Stage 2 of Enrollment with up to 12 students per classroom. We will increase the number of students in a classroom to Enrollment Stage 3 at the start of the 2021-2022 school year once we know that we can do so without compromising our safety protocols.
