Our middle school Academic Quiz team has won Round 2 of their Academic Rodeo, sponsored by the East Texas State Fair Association. Academic Challenge Quiz is a fast paced (face to face and rapid fire) quiz bowl. Questions can be from Current Events, Literature, Fine Arts, Geography, History and Social Science, Language and Vocabulary, Math, Potpourri, and Science. They even ask questions over the competing school districts' school history and local history. Mrs. Alicia Stewart is the academic coach, and participants are Braden Rankin, Olivia Morrison, Collin Nichols, Tristan Leddy, Irelyn Stone, and Isaac Hartin. Congratulations to each of you - and good luck in your finals round next Friday, January 29th.
In order to ensure the safety of students and staff, AGISD will be closed tomorrow (Monday). Even if roads are drivable, there is the potential of overnight freezing. Also, many of our employees drive in from the East or South which include areas having more issues. The school board meeting on Monday night will remain scheduled at 6:00 p.m. Stay safe and warm, Panthers! Dr. Cole McClendon, Superintendent

Pass out time is around 11:00 am, and there should be enough food products to distribute to 400-500 families.
A reminder regarding this Friday.
When a student is required to go into quarantine, they will be asked to stay home from school (and preferably any public places) for 14 days. While at home, students need to check in everyday with every class through Google Classroom. They are required to check in by completing the Bell Ringer (they have been doing this in class everyday already). They are still responsible for assignments sent in their Google Classroom. Should teachers be able to do so, they may be asked to "attend" class through Google Meet. Once students have completed their quarantine with no symptoms, they may return to campus and must see the Nurse to be screened before going to class.
Just a reminder that if you have students who are remote learners, you are still eligible for school meals. If you would like to receive meals, please contact Laura Reid, Food Services Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org before noon on Fridays for the next week's pick-up. Pick-ups are Wednesdays 8:30 - 10:30 am at the cafeteria.
We are aware of the multiple notification problem through Parent Portal. The service center is working to resolve the issue. Thank you for your patience during this time.
If you have questions, please contact your campus secretary.
