As we look forward to another year of cheering on the Mules, schedules and ticket information can be found on the Athletics website. The district has a Clear Bag Policy for all AHHS athletic facilities.


Parents should make sure their child’s immunizations are up to date, and share that information with their campus nurse. The Campus Nurse News website has minimum immunization requirements, medication policy, and medical forms to prepare for the new year.

San Antonio Metro Health also offers immunization clinics around the city, including these opportunities the next few weeks.
