Today, our VISD Superintendent, Dr. Ward, met with all staff to discuss teacher retention and pay. He stated that the VISD Board of Trustees and many district staff have been working hard to propose a new salary scale. While details are still being worked out, and the current state legislative session may have further impact on the teacher pay increases, he wanted the staff to know that their hard work and dedication does not go unrecognized by anyone. More information will be posted publicly as it is finalized. In the meantime, please take a moment to watch this video that has been created to discuss teacher retention: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Frbq-1dhtolJw3tYAgv5jvulT0sIV9Om/view?usp=sharing

Over the past couple of weeks, we have had to delay school and cancel a few times due to the weather. Today, we looked into how much time we have lost and how much time we are able to lose before we have to make up any time. At this time, we do NOT have to make up any of the time we have lost. This means that Friday, March 10, will still be a day off for everyone unless we end up with more closures/delays at a later date. Have a great weekend!
Just a reminder that there will be no school on Monday, February 6, for all students due to a staff professional development day.
This is just a reminder that there is no after-school tutoring today!
We will have school today with our 2 hour delayed start plans in place. Buses will also run 2 hours late. Although wet, the roads are fine, and temperatures are expected to rise as we move through the day.
