A reminder to our AGISD families!
Good evening, This morning an Alba-Golden ISD bus headed to Canton High School for a UIL Academic Meet was in an accident on Hwy 17 between Alba and Grand Saline. Six students and the bus driver were transported to the hospital and all were later released. There were no major injuries. The accident occurred when an oncoming vehicle entered the lane of the school bus, resulting in a collision. Pending the DPS investigation, the AGISD bus driver was not at fault. Thank you to the UIL sponsors, district staff and first responders who arrived quickly on scene to take care of our students and those involved in the accident. Our students were in very good hands this morning. We are very thankful that the injuries of the students and bus driver were not any more severe than they were. Thank you to those in our East Texas community and across the state who have reached out with prayers and well wishes for our students and staff, including Governor Greg Abbott. I ask that you please continue to pray for healing for those who were involved in the accident today. Macie Thompson Superintendent Alba-Golden ISD

AGISD celebrated a combined 53 years of service from three outstanding individuals who are retiring in December 2022. Brenda Kelley, Business Director, has served the district for 22 years, while Tracy Clark, Accounts Payable, gave 25 years of service. Mr. Ron Davis spent the last 6 years investing in our students in the Ag Science classroom - teaching valuable skills related to wood working. Alba-Golden ISD is better today because of the contribution that these three have made. Though it is a loss for us, we could not wish them anything but the best in their days ahead! May retirement bring you rest, joy, and happiness! Thank you for your service!
In an effort to continue in compliance with ESSER III requirements, we ask you to please review our "Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan" and submit any comments to Jennifer Wigington, Director of Federal Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UOLcVxQs5oN45MfoKKY3REV4MaG3WqyS/view?usp=share_link
