Before the winter break, the Argyle ISD Board of Trustees approved a waiver for the district to convert four days in the second semester to virtual learning. On these specific days, all Argyle ISD students will transition to virtual learning. This will also afford teachers additional planning and professional development time along with student engagement opportunities.

The waiver was presented and approved by the School Board during the December regular meeting.

Teachers will communicate with students and parents regarding the expectations on these assigned "virtual days" as they draw closer.


*At AIS, we will allow students to check out their chromebook if needed for these virtual days.

OUR AIS STUDENTS ARE COLLEGE AND CAREER BOUND!

NEW QUARANTINE GUIDELINES UPDATE: JANUARY 2021

Argyle ISD implemented new quarantine guidelines beginning Jan. 4, 2021. The CDC, Texas Education Agency, and the University Interscholastic League have all provided amended guidelines regarding quarantine periods for individuals who have had direct exposure to a positive individual but are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

Based on current CDC guidance, the stay-at-home period can end for individuals with direct contact but not experiencing symptoms:

(CDC and the Department of State Health Services continue to recommend the 14-day quarantine period for direct exposure to a positive confirmed case)

-On Day 10 after close contact exposure without testing,

-On Day 7 after close contact exposure and after receiving a negative test result (which must be a PCR test only and taken on Day 5 of the quarantine in this scenario)

Please note the quarantine time period will start with Day 0 being the day of the test. Day 1 starts the quarantine time period the day after the test has been administered.

* Argyle ISD nurses also MUST receive a document of the confirmed direct exposure.

Face coverings are required. Any of these three are acceptable.
