At YES Prep, we believe every student, every family deserves an opportunity for a prosperous future, and we are so thankful that you have entrusted us with providing a quality and enriching education for your student.

We also understand that our best advocates are families just like yours; families who have good experiences to share with other families who may be interested in getting the same high-quality, college-ready education for their children. Please say YES and help us reach others by referring family or friends who deserve the same opportunities offered at YES Prep.

We want our families to be aware that this 22-23 school year, attendance WILL affect whether or not your student will be promoted to the next grade level.  

Loss of credit or promotion impact is a consideration once students have unexcused absences that miss 10% or more of the school year (approximately 18 total days). Retention Placement Committees will review chronic absences at all grade levels to determine if attendance will impact a student’s final promotion or credit status. 

The 2022-2023 YES Prep Handbook states, “If a student misses an excessive number of classes for a specific course, they may be reviewed by the Grade Placement Committee and be denied credit for the course. Guardians will be informed if a student is reviewed by the Grade Placement Committee.” Attendance is complex and when considering retention or loss of credit, YES Prep believes in ensuring outside factors (parent decisions, attendance coding errors, transcript errors etc.) do not inequitably impact a student’s ability to be promoted or to gain credit. However, in all cases of unexcused absences, YES Prep will take days missed into consideration when making decisions on make-up time, promotion status, and awarding of credit. 






For the safety of all students and staff we will follow an updated student driver policy when we return in January. Students who wish to continue driving to campus will need to provide the items below to the front office and sign a student driver policy form before a car tag will be assigned. Cars in the parking lot without a Northline Student or Staff Tag will be towed from our parking lots starting in January. Additionally, registered drivers will only be approved to drive with their siblings. 



As a reminder, all students who are car riders should not be dropped up or picked up on the street. Parents should be entering the school parking lot and driving around the building to drop off/pick up their students before leaving through our exit gates. Traffic moves very quickly on Little York and having students dropped off in our designated spaces helps ensure we are keeping students safe.  



Students caught vandalizing school property will earn consequences for each offense and parents will be charged for the damaged property. Please talk to your students about respecting school property by avoiding and reporting school vandalism.



Please be advised that while parents are able to bring food for their own student, we cannot allow for parents to drop off food for other students. Students on campus can have various food allergies and to ensure safety of all students during lunch times we can’t allow food to be dropped of for students unless it is from their parent. Additionally, when food is dropped off at the front office, students are not called down from their classrooms. Parents will need to have already communicated this to their student.



If you have not already, you must complete your Back-to-School form for your students in order to complete re-enrollment. All returning students to YES Prep will need to complete this form. Back-to-school forms are available through your Skyward Family Access account. 



We are accepting applications for grades 6 -12th for the 2023-2024 school year! If you have more children eligible for those grade levels or you know of a friend who would like to apply, please encourage them to visit www.yesprep.org to apply!

On report cards of students in grades 9-12 on Jan. 6, there may be a new notation "NG" that hides a student's grade due to having 18 or more unexcused absences in that course.   Students who receive NG grades may not be failing the course; instead, they failed to meet expanded state attendance requirements, so they will not receive a grade until that course is recovered.  HB 5, an updated regulation passed by the Texas Legislature, outlines standards for promotion and graduation to include attendance.
The school considers students who miss more than 10% of class time as "excessive, unexcused absences" by the school. Although YES Prep will assign and record grades, they will not be awarded to students who have excessive absences until the student recovers the missing seat time.
The student may correct this issue by repeating the course, attending credit recovery, or completing attendance recovery.  The campus attendance committee can also be contacted in cases where extenuating circumstances exist.  More information on enrolling in credit recovery or attendance recovery will be released in February. If parents or guardians have any questions regarding attendance recovery in the Spring, they may contact the campus Director of Student Support (DSS).
For more on HB 5, go to https://tea.texas.gov/academics/graduation-information/house-bill-5-foundation-high-school-program.



Daily attendance is critical for student learning and socialization. Research shows that students who are chronically absent- missing 10% or more of school days due to absence for any reason (excused, unexcused, suspensions) - can lead to difficulty learning to read by the 3rd grade, achieving academically in middle school, and graduating from high school. We know that you care deeply about your child’s academic and social well-being and the best place for them to learn and grow is at school. Every day your child is absent, they fall behind in their classes and it requires work to catch up. They also miss out on all the opportunities to enjoy school with their peers and their teachers. 
If you or your child are struggling with being at school, we can help. Click here to learn how.
