Superintendent Surprises Argyle ISD's Campus Nurses

This week and on National Nurses Day on Wednesday, Argyle ISD celebrated its outstanding campus nurses. Superintendent Dr. Wright, along with staff and students, surprised each of the nurses with a special gift and big "thank yous" for all their hard work this school year.

The nurses have done such an outstanding job keeping our Eagle students and staff safe during the pandemic. This was a year in which their jobs changed drastically and they shined in the midst of so many challenges. We are grateful for their service and dedication.
