WE DID IT!!!!
Thank you to all of our families for bearing with us as we navigated the unchartered waters of this year. Your support helped us keep our schools open while so many others were closed.
Thank you to our School Board who gave countless hours to support our students and staff through this unprecedented year.
Thank you to our amazing staff. I hope you know that each and every challenge that was thrown our way was conquered because of YOUR commitment to the students of Prosper ISD.
Thank you to our students. You stepped up and excelled this year despite the challenges inherent in this school year. Your smiles and enthusiasm lifted my spirits every day as I watched you learn, grow, and succeed in the classroom and beyond.
THANK YOU is just not enough to adequately convey how thankful I am to be a part of Prosper ISD. This year has taught us so many things including the importance of teamwork, flexibility, compassion, and understanding. I know that we are all looking forward to a much more "normal" school year in the fall. Until then rest, relax, and enjoy time with family and friends.
Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you all in August!

2021-2022 PISD Summer Reading Information
New to Prosper and not able to complete this before school starts? Don’t worry!
Your teacher will be ready to support you when you arrive at school!
WHY SUMMER READING:
PISD continues to refine the design of summer reading so that as students read throughout the summer break, they are both able to explore reading through choice and through exposure to thought-provoking literature.
WHAT SUMMER READING IS:
- Students are asked to read over the summer. To help with this, suggested reading lists are provided for high school. These are, however, suggestions and students should feel the freedom to self-select texts. During the first few weeks of school, discussions, writing assignments, and further reading assignments will be based on summer reading. Teachers will be prepared with alternate assignments and texts to support students who are new to the district.
- Suggested reading lists are based on your student’s 2021-2022 English class as well as lists provided by the American Library Association. More information is available below via the links:
Students will continue to have access to Overdrive (Sora), Prosper ISD’s Digital Reading Platform, through the Portal over the summer as an option for additional reading material.
Join the Blue Crew
What is Blue Crew? Being a part of the Blue Crew makes you part of the team! Blue Crew buddies will join the players on the field on Friday nights as they run through the tunnel at Children's Health Stadium. They will be partnered with a Blue Hawk football athlete from Rock Hill High School during the fall and spring football seasons. They will be pen pals with their paired RHHS athlete and receive and send letters throughout the season. This program is geared as a mentoring opportunity to build up our Blue Crew buddies and get them excited about being a Blue Hawk.
We are happy to announce that we will be expanding the age group to include incoming 6th graders!
Cost is $50 and includes a newly designed football jersey, Blue Crew wristband, and an opportunity to meet Rocky the Blue Hawk mascot.
If you have any questions, you can reach out to Mrs. Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.

Choosing the Best Sunscreen for Kids
It's important to protect children's skin from the sun year-round, but especially important in the summer months when they're spending more time outside. Here's everything you need to know about choosing a safe sunscreen this summer.
Updated COVID Safety Procedures
Please note the following revised COVID protocols that will be in place for the summer, effective May 21 at 1pm.
- Students or Staff who test positive for COVID will be required to meet the following return criteria:
- fever-free x 24 hours without fever-reducing medications; AND
- symptoms improving; AND
- at least 10 days have passed since symptom onset (or test collection date if asymptomatic)
- Students or Staff that are household contacts of positive cases will be required to quarantine for at least 7 days.
- If the contact remains asymptomatic, they may return to in-person activities on Day 8 with a negative test collected no earlier than Day 5, or on Day 11 without testing.
- A contact who develops any symptom during the quarantine period [headache, sore throat, fever, chills, cough, congestion, etc] will be required to complete, at a minimum, 14 days of quarantine from the date of last exposure, though this may be extended depending on symptoms and date of onset.
- Aside from household contacts, no contact tracing of students or staff will be completed, and there will be no quarantine for exposures that are not household contacts.
- Normal fever exclusion guidelines are in place (excluded until fever-free x24 hours without fever-reducing medications).
- If the fever is accompanied by one of the possible COVID-19 symptoms (see next bullet), additional return criteria must be met.
- Individuals will be excluded from in-person activities for possible COVID-19 symptoms of: loss of taste or loss of smell. Students who are non-verbal or have difficulty communicating what they are feeling, may also be excluded for a cough that is new onset or different than normal for the child, at the discretion of the campus nurse or administrator. When excluded for a possible COVID-19 infection, return criteria are as follows:
- obtain an alternate diagnosis from a medical professional OR
- provide documentation of a negative COVID-19 test OR
- the individual is managed similar to a positive case and held to that return criteria (see above).
- The District's COVID Dashboard will cease to report district cases beginning May 22.
- Notification of cases will only occur over the summer if 2 or more in-person-exposure cases are identified within a group during a two week time-period (groups with 30 or less people), or in 10% of the group for groups with more than 30 people. Notification will go to those participating in the group only.
- Health and safety measures will continue to be encouraged: frequent hand washing/sanitizing, physical distancing 3-6 feet as able, recommended self-screening prior to daily campus/activity participation, and routine cleaning of campus facilities.
In the event that COVID-19 activity significantly increases on a particular campus or within a particular group, additional actions may be taken or guidelines adjusted.
