Fighting the Flu: Attendance Letter
Published: Mon, Feb 19, 2018, 02:30PM CST

CISD continues to see an increase in absences due to flu and flu-like illness. CISD Health Services is monitoring these illnesses in our district and communicates frequently with Custodial Services to ensure our campuses receive thorough, necessary cleanings. CISD understands that recovery from the flu and other illnesses often takes several days. The state does require the district to send parents a mandatory email notice after three unexcused absences within a four-week period in order to combat truancy, especially in secondary students. However, please note that all unexcused absences will be corrected in the parent portal once a note is received after a student returns to school. A child who is sick cannot learn effectively and is unable to participate in a meaningful way. Keeping a sick child at home prevents the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child an opportunity to rest and recover. Click here for more information on health attendance guidelines. The actions of students and staff also can help prevent or slow the incidence of flu. According to the CDC, the first line of defense is getting the flu shot. Other preventative measures include covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands and keeping sick people away from others.

Your Support Is Needed
Published: Mon, Feb 19, 2018, 02:30PM CST

Did you know that 70% of human trafficking victims are women and girls? Did you know that 35% of women experience physical and or sexual violence? It sounds so crazy that 700 million women were married as children worldwide and 250 million were married before 15. Our Geometry classes have partnered with GENESIS Women’s Shelter. This is an organization created to help the victims of domestic violence – in order to create some different statistics.

What can you do to help? NTH@C is hosting a drive for the Genesis Women’s Shelter summer camp kids. We are currently collecting sunscreen, chapstick, sunglasses, flip flops, healthy snacks & drinks, arts & crafts supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, arm floaties, and life jackets. There is a drop off box at the front entrance of the school.

Thank you for supporting those who in great need!

If you have questions, please email Mrs. Osterberger, bosterberger@coppellisd.com.

Coppell ISD Announces 2018-2019 Calendar
Published: Sun, Feb 11, 2018, 07:32PM CST

The Coppell ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved the 2018-2019 academic calendar at its Jan. 22 meeting. The 2018-2019 calendar will be duplicated for 2019-2020.

The 2018-2019 academic calendar has school beginning Wednesday, August 15, 2018. CISD believes this mid-week start optimizes student acclimation, especially in lower grades. The school year ends Thursday, May 23, 2019, which is prior to Memorial Day. The calendar also has closer alignment of the number of days in first and second semesters to assist with secondary course instruction. In addition, it aligns with many surrounding districts, which have approved earlier start dates.

The calendar also includes the required 187 work days for teachers and has the greater than 75,600 minutes required by the state of Texas for student instruction.

A copy of the CISD 2018-2019 calendar and 2019-2020 calendar can be found at www.coppellisd.com/Page/13470.

The District Educational Improvement Council (DEIC) Calendar Subcommittee worked to review requirements, long-held traditions and input from district stakeholders to develop two calendar options for the 2018-2019 school year. These options were presented to the CISD community and staff for input. About 69 percent of those voting preferred Option 2, which is the version the CISD Board of Trustees approved Jan. 22. Details on the CISD calendar development process can be found here.
