Williamsburg Settlement | April 2021 3


ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Once again we are approaching April and our all-important

Annual General Meeting. This meeting is your opportunity to

meet your current Board members and this time to cast your

vote for candidates to fill three of the seven director positions

on the Board. Two of these are held by incumbents C.O. Holt

and Dave Ellis, both of whom are prepared to serve again if

reelected. But this year we also have the open positions left by the

resignations of Chris Cox. All owners of record will be receiving by

mail the official notification in accordance with our Bylaws. This

notification will also include a proxy/absentee ballot form for the

use of anyone who is unable to attend the meeting in person. You

may use this form to vote for a candidate or to assign your vote

to another person who you choose to vote on your behalf or you

can forego your vote and submit your proxy for quorum purposes

only. In order to conduct the meeting we must have a quorum

of our members so it is very important that if you cannot attend

in person that you complete and submit your completed proxy/

absentee ballot form in accordance with the instructions that

will be included in the package. This meeting will be held in the

clubhouse at 1602 Hoyt Lane on Tuesday April 20 th . It will begin

promptly at 7 PM following a 30-minute registration period.

2021 POOL SCHEDULE

The 2021 pool schedule is now posted on our web site. Again this

year our pool will be managed by A-Beautiful and we are looking

forward to another great season. We hope the Corona virus

situation continues to improve, but for the time being last year’s

safety precautions will remain in place and access to the pool

area will require everyone to submit a liability waiver in addition

to having pool tags. At the appropriate time you will be able to

request your tags via the Crest website and they will be mailed

to you. Procedural details will be published when they become

available closer to the start of the swim season. The good news

is that as most of you are aware at the end of the 2020 season

the pool was re-plastered and we now have a new diving Board

installed as we continue to maintain and enhance the Settlement’s

infrastructure. We invite all our residents to take advantage of our

beautiful pool and looking forward to seeing you poolside!

JOIN THE 2021 DOLPHIN SWIM TEAM!

The swim team is excited to announce that registration is now open

for the 2021 swim season! Last season we were one of the very few

swim teams to have a season. We safely executed a “practice-only”

season and gave our cooped-up kids a chance to get out of the

house and swim. This season may still look a little different, but we

are anticipating having some form of competitive meets against

other teams. We have a new head coach who has been coaching

swimmers for more than 10 years. We can’t wait for you to meet

her! The rest of our coaches all grew up swimming for the Dolphins

and they’re excited to see all those smiling faces again.

Swimmers of all skill levels between 4 and 18 years old are

welcome! (Note, swim team is not a substitute for swim lessons,

swimmers should have at least a basic ability to swim)

Practices will start April 26 th and the season runs through the end

of June.

2021 COMMUNITY EVENTS

Although our new Community Events chairperson, Michael

Wood, is “straining on the leash” to begin organizing our 2021

community events program, we are still faced with the challenge

posed by the ongoing pandemic. At its February 23 rd meeting,

the Board decided that, just as for clubhouse rentals, it would not

be responsible to host events until we can do so safely and that

events should not be scheduled while the Harris County threat

level remains above level 3. Meanwhile Michael will be making

preparations so that he can hit the ground running as soon as

conditions become acceptable for holding such events.

PET ID TAGS

Folks - as soon as the vet gives your young pets their Rabies shot

remember to get their ID tags. The Rabies tag lists the name,

phone number and address of the vet. So! All you need to do is

put the Rabies tag onto the pet’s collar and leave it there all the

time. That way, if the pet gets loose, anyone finding him or her can

look at the tag to see the vet’s phone number and call to report

the lost animal. Better yet, add another tag to your pet’s collar

that lists the dog or cat’s name and your own phone number or

address. You can get these from any pet store. When a pet has

these but goes astray, anyone finding it can call you and you can

go get him or her right away. Your pet will be very glad to see you!

A happy pet is a loving pet.

STREET LIGHT OUTAGES

To report a burned out streetlight, any resident may call

CenterPoint directly at 713-207-2222. However, for those with

Internet access, you may also make this report on-line. For those

interested, you can go to http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/

outage. Then enter your contact details so that they can get back

to you if more information is required. On the following page

enter the details of the light(s) with the problem. Just as you

would if reporting the outage via the telephone, you will need

to provide the street address where the light is located and the

6-digit number that is prominently displayed on the front of the

pole. Under normal circumstances the crew will be out to fix the

problem within 7 working days.

Anyone noticing a streetlight that is out or has some other

malfunction is encouraged to report the problem to CenterPoint

via either of these two methods without delay. Our Association is

charged for every streetlight each month, irrespective of whether

or not the light is functioning. So please help us get value for your

hard earned money!

VETERINARY PUBLIC HEALTH LEASH LAW

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our

residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal

running at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person.

Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which

could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal.

Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal

Control) advises that, “All dogs and cats must be kept under

restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas.

The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor

or keep any unlicensed dog or cat or to allow any dog or cat to

become a stray.”

Restraint is defined as the control of a dog or cat under the

following circumstances:

1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more then six (6)

feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who

is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question.

2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle.

3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does

not have access to sidewalk to street.

While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you

work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly

restrained.

Dr. Brad McCary, DVM

www.williamsburg-vets.com

Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place

for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not

only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area,

but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or

possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet.

COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL UPDATES

CONTINUED CAMPUS PHASE 1 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Katy ISD Campus Phase 1 Safety Protocols remain in effect to ensure the continued

mitigation and deterrence of the potential spread of COVID-19. The District anticipates

releasing Phase 2 protocols when state, local and the Texas Education Agency (TEA)

provide updated guidance allowing for de-escalation of virus mitigation protocols. Katy

ISD will provide updates as additional information becomes available. Please check the

Katy ISD “Smart Restart” webpage to review current Campus Phase 1 Safety Protocols.

KATY ISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES CALL

FOR A MAY 2021 SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees approved to hold a general election in

May 2021 for a three-year term in Positions 6 and 7.

• Early Voting by Personal Appearance: Mon, April 19 to Tues, April 27, 2021

• Election Day: Saturday, May 1, 2021

Currently, Position 6 is being held by Susan Gesoff and Position 7 is held

by Dawn Champagne. State law requires a candidate for trustee of an

independent school district to be a qualified voter by the time mentioned

in Election Code Section 141.001. Katy ISD trustees are the governing body

of the school district and are the main advising group that oversees and

shapes policies. Individuals serving as Board members are not employees

of Katy ISD, yet they dedicate countless hours to lead an A+ school district.

KATY VIRTUAL SCHOOL REGISTRATION OPEN

For students, virtual classes are an excellent way to acquire graduation credits

and/or expand their learning opportunities. Last year, over 4,000 students

utilized the Katy Virtual School (KVS) program offered by the Katy Independent

School District. KVS launched in 2013 with a primary goal of expanding the

learning opportunities for students by offering choice and flexibility for rigorous

online courses developed and taught by Katy ISD teachers. KVS has begun

online registration for Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.

“KVS provides online learning that offers a flexible, online experience, which

helps students achieve their educational goals,” said Susan Richards, Katy ISD

Instructional Technology e-Learning Manager. “The virtual model of e-learning

is in high demand and delivers quality instruction to Katy ISD students, outside

of normal school hours, to support student graduation plans. KVS is different

from the current Katy Virtual Academy (KVA), which is the online learning

model implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Richards.

KVS will offer a wide range of courses from Creative Writing, AP Art

History, English III, World Geography, Economics, Psychology and more.

There are over 30 Advanced Placement (AP), Katy Advanced Program

(KAP) and academic level courses available to students with additional

opportunities being added each year. The cost per course is $200 per

semester. KVS is an approved College Board online provider for Advanced

Placement (AP) courses and by the NCAA for student initial eligibility.

For more information, students can talk with their campus counselor for

additional information, email KVS at katyvirtualschool@katyisd.org or

visit the Katy ISD Virtual School website.

Please note: Katy Virtual School and Katy Virtual Academy are two

separate programs. Katy Virtual School is a supplemental program to

help entering or present high school students take courses in advance.

EIGHTEEN KATY ISD SCHOOLS EARN

TEXAS HONOR ROLL DISTINCTION

Katy Independent School District is focused on closing the achievement

gap and helping all its students reach academic success. To recognize

those efforts, 18 Katy ISD schools now proudly display the distinction of

being a Texas Honor Roll School by the Educational Results Partnership

(ERP).

After an extensive analysis of student data of every public school in

Texas, these campuses demonstrated clear leadership in motivating

and achieving academic success for its students at their grade-level

and beyond. Sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education

Excellence (CBEE), the ERP Honor Roll is the only school recognition

program in the state that uses student achievement outcome data,

making it a valuable resource for all schools to identify successful peers

and learn about best practices that improve student success.

The 2019-20 Texas Honor Roll includes:

Elementary: Alexander, Holland, Kilpatrick, Pattison, Randolph, Shafer,

Stanley, Wilson,

Wolman

Junior High: Beckendorff, Katy, Memorial Parkway, McMeans, Seven

Lakes, Tays, WoodCreek

High School: Tompkins, Seven Lakes

For high schools, the ERP Texas Honor Roll recognition includes measures

of college readiness. This year, the program recognized 943 higherperforming

schools across the state.

DONATUTORS

Donatutors is a nonprofit tutoring organization that donates 100% of

our proceeds to charity. All of our tutors are straight-A students at Seven

Lakes High school and we offer a multitude of courses like creative

writing, computer science, biology, public speaking, ICTW writing and

many different math courses too. We charge $20 per class, but the first

one is free! For more information, check out donatutors.com or email

us at donatutors@gmail.com. What’s even cooler is that this summer

Donatutors was able to raise $1,283 which we used 70% to give to a

Houston based charity called NAMI and 30% to buy a bunch of masks

and canned food for donation. Please check us out!
