X-Large Cardboard Boxes Needed for Theater!

If anyone has XL cardboard boxes, the theater department would love to use them for sets and props!  Anything 4ft x 4ft or larger is ideal; refrigerator, mattress or furniture boxes are perfect.  Just bring them up to school and the front office staff can help store them in the auditorium.  Thanks!

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.

See HERE for the full letter to parents. Please have a safe and healthy week!
