Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Shark Families,

I hope everyone had a great Spring Break! As we look forward to a new week of learning and growing, I want to remind everyone that we have three days of testing coming up this week. Students will be completing interim testing both on campus and virtual on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Due to testing being performed online, the district will not have live streaming or live conferences on these days. Virtual students will have their testing tickets emailed to them. For in-person learners, please make sure their Chromebooks are fully charged for each day of testing. Please let us know if you have any questions! Thanks, and have a great week!

Courtney Rodriguez,

Covid Self-Reporting Form (Symptoms or Exposure)

For students and staff members in Forney ISD

Covid Guidance for Students

If a student is exhibiting these symptoms, please keep them home and call our nurse.

  • Cough; difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Severe headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
  • Feeling fevering or having fever greater that 100 degree F.

If someone in your household has Covid, or is suspected of having Covid (even if waiting for test results), or your child is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, please fill out the self-reporting form below.

When students are home due to quarantine, they can participate in their school work on Canvas so that they don't get behind. Logging in to Canvas each day and completing assignments counts as their daily attendance.

Vaccine Clinic for 6th Graders

6th graders are required to have updated immunizations before going to 7th grade! Take advantage of our on-site Vaccine Clinic (Not Covid Vaccine) on April 1 from 8:00- 12:00 p.m.

Parents do NOT have to be in attendance, but we must have your completed paperwork by March 26, 2021.
