September Community Newsletter From Forney ISD

As Forney ISD begins a new school year, it is important that our community knows that the safety and security of all students in our district will continue to remain a top priority. Each campus continues to go above and beyond the measures outlined by the state of Texas to ensure every child is protected while attending our schools.

Below is a list of some of the district's safety and security priorities. For more information, visit https://www.forneyisd.net/Page/1660.

City Bank Stadium Clear Bag Enforcement

As one of our ongoing security measures to help ensure the safety of our students, staff, and guests, Forney ISD will enforce a clear bag policy at all City Bank Stadium events. This policy limits the size and type of bags allowed for spectators.

Mr. Cary Griffin Media Suite of City Bank Stadium

For nearly two decades, Cary served as director on the board of the Forney Education Foundation and was the all-community member representative for the Forney ISD District Education Improvement Council. He and Judy were the first recipients of the Forney ISD Legacy Award in recognition of their servant leadership to Forney ISD and the Forney Family.

As a tribute to Cary’s legacy, the Forney ISD Board of Trustees is dedicating the media suite at City Bank Stadium as the Mr. Cary Griffin Media Suite. There will be a public recognition during the pre-game activities on Sept. 1 and Sept. 9.

Happy Labor Day!

Forney ISD will be closed Monday, September 5, in observance of Labor Day.
