Afternoon Dismissal Procedures

As stated above, the methods for dismissal are identical to previous years. For those that are NEW to Houston High School and are planning to pick your child up from the school, please see the following description:

*Please note that this is NOT a change from last year.
All roads to the school serve as both entrances and exits. Students/faculty/parents will be able to exit or enter from either side.
AREA “A” is one carline pickup option.
AREA “C” is another carline pickup option.
AREA “B” serves as the bus lane from 2pm-3pm and no cars are allowed to use this loop.
Parents picking up their child are advised to choose and discuss their preferred pickup location with students in advance.

For those needing an enlarged or printable version of the parent pick up/dismissal method, please click here.

Due to the number of after school activities, and the variation of student location at the conclusion of the school day, parents and students may choose the best options for their family.  The traffic getting into the high is far less complicated.
