Message from Principal Thompson

Stallion Families,

While it has been a short week, but it hasn’t been short on student learning!

Walking through classrooms this week, I’ve been able to observe students owning the learning and showing their leadership skills with every turn! 

As you know, today is a student holiday and a teacher professional development day.  We hope all of our families are able to enjoy the 3 day weekend! Next week our teachers are excitedly prepping for their parent conferences and looking forward to touching base with you.

Finally, we are so excited to be able to participate in Fall Fest Saturday (tomorrow!! We look forward to seeing our stallion families (masked-up) enjoying the weather and having some fun! 

Stallion Strong,

Principal Thompson

Per Texas Department of State Health and Dallas ISD policy, your student must be fully compliant with vaccinations or have a valid original Affidavit of Exemption submitted or on file. Please send an updated vaccination record to Nurse Sundin by 10/12. You can e-mail vaccination records to jsundin@dallasisd.org or fax to 972-749-7201 attn School Nurse. If you have affidavits, please bring the original to the school. 

If you have not received a letter sent home with your student, you do not need to re-send a vaccination record.  Please contact school nurse at 972-749-7309 if you have any questions. Thanks!
