The Italy ISD School Board is planning to take action on a Proposed 2022-2023 School Calendar at the March board meeting. There are 2 draft calendars for you to review (DRAFT A and DRAFT B). Your comments and suggestions about the draft calendars will be taken into consideration by the district site-based committee. The committee will then draft a final version to recommend for approval by the Italy ISD School Board. The final version may or may not look exactly like the drafts depending on the feedback. If you have comments or suggestions, please complete the survey by Monday, February 28, 2022. Your input is appreciated. Italy ISD https://forms.gle/9mxhRG7fkYb1SocM7

Italy ISD School Closure Friday, January 14, 2022 Due to rapidly increasing COVID cases and staffing shortages (both current and projected), we are changing this coming Friday, January 14 to an in-person staff workday. The day will be a student holiday. We have additional minutes built into the school calendar and this time will not have to be made up for students. Currently scheduled extra-curricular activities (UIL games, etc.) will continue as scheduled unless you are contacted by your coach or sponsor. All staff should report to their campus from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. All staff should be working in their classrooms or offices alone and refrain from any group gatherings including meals together. All staff must be in-person or have an absence documented for the day. While the COVID Omicron variant is quickly spreading and we expect mass population coverage soon, we will continue to monitor active cases each week to mitigate the spread. We apologize to our families for the inconvenience but feel this decision is in the best interest of Italy ISD students and staff. We are feeling the impact of staff absences throughout the district. This will allow for an extra day apart along with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday, Jan. 17. Please contact your campus if you have any questions. Rachel Kistner Italy ISD Superintendent

Friday Night Lights in Italy, watching our Gladiator Football Team, is an exciting and fun family-friendly event to show our Italy pride and support our students. Safety and security is of utmost importance not only in our schools but also at all our extracurricular events. Beginning this Friday evening at our homecoming football game and continuing at all future games, some additional safety protocols will be reinstated at our stadium. All spectators are being asked to remain behind the fence that separates the bleachers/concessions from the track and the field at all times. Spectators will not be allowed on the track or the field before, during or after the game. Staff working the game will be wearing lanyards with access tags in order to fulfill their responsibilities and provide support for students, spectators and guests. At all times, please make sure the only thing our players and fellow spectators hear from us is cheering on our students. Please refrain from heckling, yelling or using inappropriate language towards our coaches and staff or in front of families, students and small children. Let’s keep this a family-friendly event. At the conclusion of the football game, players will have a few minutes to meet their families at the fence, however, players will remain on the track and families will remain behind the fence. After that, Italy football players will be directed to the new fieldhouse area where they will be taken by bus back to the dressing rooms at the high school and can be picked up in the parking lot by the Ag Shop and the Dome. Band members will be dismissed as usual under the guidance of our band directors. We look forward to seeing everyone at the game! Have fun cheering on our students and spending time with your family and friends! Go Italy Gladiators! Rachel L. Kistner Italy ISD Superintendent "One Voice, One Direction, One Team" 972-483-1815 rkistner@italyisd.org
