Are you or your kiddos missing their school family?!? We know we are missing you!!! Let’s have a school spirit day on Monday (today is Saturday to those who don’t know what day it is. It’s kinda hard to know when we aren’t living real life!). Be making your plans now to dress in your best red, white, and blue A-G spirit attire. We will open a fb post on Monday morning for you to share your pics with us! We are A-G! 🐾❤️🐾

Parents, students, and community of Alba-Golden, Today marks the end of the extended break and next week begins our online/home learning classes with both Elementary and Secondary. Throughout this week, teachers have been working to upload assignments into their Google Classrooms and also creating packets for those without internet. We know there has been an overload of information this week, but we are doing the best we can to keep you informed of changes that are happening day by day. Our goal for this online learning experience and “home school” is not to overwhelm either the parents nor the students but to try to continue in as normal of a routine as possible. We know some students have started working on their assignments this week while others have decided to use this time to spend with their families. We highly encourage you to begin next week and consider your attendance to your packets or online to be of the same importance as you attending school everyday. Our assignments this week were to get everyone ready and acclimated to this different style of learning. Parents, thank you for your patience and your effort to partner with us to keep your child/children educated during this unprecedented time. Please make sure your children have logged into their Classroom account or that the school has been notified they need packets sent home. Please do not hesitate to email your teachers or administrators with any questions. We are in this together!

Meals have successfully been delivered the last two days, and it has been a blessing seeing sweet, smiling faces! This one thing we must ask for your help on: school representatives who are making the deliveries must see the children whom they are delivering to before meals can be dropped off. Please help us by having your children on the look-out. Thank you for your cooperation.

In the day of social media where things spread like wildfire, and school posts are shared 97 times and viewed by 3500 in the matter of a few hours, it’s terrible to get your facts wrong! But... that’s what we’ve done! We need to give a correction to the update that went out today: We are officially announcing closure through Friday, April 3rd, with school to resume on Monday, April 6th. If the need arises to delay further, another three week period would be likely. All other facts are still accurate. We just got the ending date incorrect. Again, school closure is officially announced through Friday, April 3rd. We apologize for the error!

Google Classroom Update for the Secondary Campus Parents and Secondary Students: This has definitely been a different, and somewhat challenging, week in education. We thank you for your patience as teachers have been working to set up or expand their use of Google Classroom in order to still provide you with the best education possible under the circumstances.. Teachers are still working to get assignments pushed out. Here are a few reminders and tips to help this go more smoothly for all involved: 1) Take a deep breath!!! This is not an ideal situation, but like we have told the teachers: relax, make the most of it, and even have some fun trying out new things. 2) If you (the student) are not already enrolled in your classes, here is the link to your Google Classroom codes: https://www.agisd.com/o/alba-golden/page/elearning--16 (This is on the main www.agisd.com website, under Menu (top right), Resources, eLearning). 3) You MUST use your school student email account in order to log in to the Google app. This includes Drive, Email, Classroom, Docs, Slides, etc. If you need assistance with Google Classroom (or anything Google related), here is a good resource: https://tinyurl.com/qpnbucv 4) Teachers are putting out short and simple assignments this week to make sure everyone is getting logged on. Should this time out of school be extended, you will be required to do more work online. Should we be allowed to return to school, you have now learned a new skill that will become more useful in the future! 5) All Google Apps are available for free download for tablets and smart phones. You do not need a computer (although we admit it is best for some work). Some teachers will also utilize Apps such as IXL and Study Island. These are also free and used on tablets and smart phones. We have also learned that those students who have gaming consoles that are connected for online gaming are also able to be used for getting on the web to access your Classrooms. 6) Be sure you are on Remind for each teacher you have. The teacher is always the first contact for any questions about assignments and how the class operates. Please use Remind and Email as they are working from home and are available to help. 7) We understand there are those who do not have access to the internet at home. We are working on other solutions for this as well. Some ideas that you could try include: call local internet providers. Some have started providing free internet usage during this time. We are not sure if any are in this area yet but it’s worth a shot at trying to find out. Also, be sure to stay in touch with your teacher. Several teachers will have creative solutions to do assignments similar to the ones they put online or they can send you the actual questions through Remind. If you are working with the teacher, they will work with you as well! 8) Our office staff is available to help with ANY question. Please do not hesitate to ask as we cannot help if we don’t know you need it. We know most parents have not dealt with Google Classroom before. We have had extensive training on it and would love to answer any questions. Please contact any of the following to help you out: Curriculum Director- Deitra Bizzell (bizzelld@agisd.org) Technology Specialist- Stacy Rolen (rolens@agisd.org) Counselor- Starla Bryant (sbryant@agisd.org) Academic Advisor- Amanda Galyean (galyeana@agisd.org) JH Principal- Brandon Bohannan (bohannanb@agisd.org) HS Principal- Michael Mize (mizem@agisd.org) Again, we all need to work together to make the most of a different situation. Thank you for your patience and diligence to work with us. We promise we are not on vacation; we are continuing to find ways students can be educated no matter where we are. We are One. -- Brandon Bohannan Junior High Principal bohannanb@agisd.org 903-768-2472 Ext. 1207

I have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID- 19) and been in contact with local and state health authorities, the Commissioner of Education, and other school districts. At this time, due to concerns for the health and safety of our AGISD Family - students, staff, and community, Alba- Golden and the other Wood County schools will extend Spring Break one week. This will allow us to further assess all student and staff travel. I understand this decision will directly impact everyone in our school community, and I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. Beginning Monday, March 16th, no extracurricular or UIL activities will take place until further notice. As decisions are made concerning the return to school the information will be made available as soon as possible. Updates will be posted on the school website. School employees, please continue to monitor your email for further instructions. Sincerely, Eddie White AGISD Interim Superintendent

The Houston Livestock Show has been cancelled out of caution to prevent the spread of the CoronaVirus. AGISD students who were participating in the show had waited outside of the grounds all night before checking in yesterday morning. After they checked in, they discovered that the show was cancelled. Our agriculture staff who was with the students on site immediately reloaded the vehicles and started the return trip home yesterday afternoon, Wednesday, March 11, 2020. At this time, there is no action to be taken by Alba-Golden ISD. If any further information comes forward or direction by state is obtained, I will update both the school website and the Facebook page. Please let me know if you have any questions by emailing me at whitee@agisd.org. Sincerely, Eddie White Interim Superintendent, AGISD
