Message from Principal Thompson

Stallion Families,

I hope this message finds everyone and their families as healthy and safe as possible. While I know these past few weeks have been challenging for everyone, I truly apricate your support. As we learn new information and guidance, we appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to ensure everyone has the information they need.

This week, our students did a great job this week with our MAP middle of year assessments and progress monitoring. Also, I am so proud of our team of teachers and support staff who are stepping up in so many creative and truly going above and beyond for our students!

We are looking forward to next week and are sending positive thoughts for all of our stallions health and safety during this challenging time.

Stallion Strong,

Principal Thompson

Message from the School Nurses

As Covid is at the top of everyone's mind, we have a few reminders for our community:

  • If your student is sick at home, they should not come to school. Please assess your student(s) daily at home before sending them back to school.

  • If you student has tested positive, or been in close contact with a confirmed covid-19 case, please EMAIL Nurse Assistant Lewanda Mclemore-Vaughn at lmclemorevaughn@dallasisd.org. (Nurse Sundin will be out for a few weeks.) Emails reporting Covid-related information should contain: 
    1. Students’ legal name and class section / teacher
    2. Date of close contact or positive test
    3. Symptoms and any further context
    4. Vaccination status of the student
    5. Copy of positive/negative Covid-19 test if applicable

  • Quarantine guidance has been updated to reflect an isolation period of 5 days after a positive Covid test.  See those details HERE.

  • Those who have been fully vaccinated and are deemed a close contact will not be required to quarantine if they are not displaying symptoms. As always, anyone who displays symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home and contact their health care provider.

  • If your child has been fully vaccinated, please submit a copy of the vaccination card to lmclemorevaughn@dallasisd.org.
