Superintendent's Message

Mr. Jay Tullos, CISD Superintendent
August 20, 2018.
 
The staff has been working hard this summer to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year and is looking forward to seeing all of our students on Monday!
 
We want to remind everyone that with the beginning of the school year, traffic around the campuses will increase.  If you are driving your child to school, please leave early due to the heavy amount of car riders we will have this week.  Please be extra careful to watch for students walking to school or around the campuses.
 
Also be safe around the buses that will be out picking and dropping off students beginning.  Please stop any time you see the red flashing lights on a school bus.
 
Student safety is always the top priority at CISD.  As you will see when you enter each campus, we have modified our front offices to better secure the campuses.  Another step we have taken is we have added a second police officer to the CISD Police Department.  Along with the officer, we also have on staff a highly trained K-9 Officer.
 
We believe these steps along with numerous others will keep our students safe while they learn each day.
 
This first week of school already sees our students in after school activities.  The High School Volleyball team will be at home Tuesday against Grand Saline.
 
Thursday through Saturday the Eaglettes will be in the Edgewood Tournament.
 
Also on Thursday evening the High School Football teams will travel to Trinity Christian for the last scrimmage of the year.
 
To round out the week, the Cross Country teams will be in Waxahachie on Saturday.
 
This week’s Eagle Vision Trait is, “Strive for excellence.”  Go above and beyond in all that you do.
 
The Eagle Etiquette reminder is, “Always encourage others.  Never put anyone down.”
 
And the August Quote of the Month is “You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."
 
Make sure to keep up with all the campuses and district happenings by following us on Twitter.  We want to thank our community for all their support, and hope everyone has a great week!
 
 
Respectfully,
 
Jay Tullos
Superintendent
