COVID Updates

As we are all aware, COVID numbers are on the rise. NISD is currently monitoring COVID cases at all campuses and evaluating recommendations from the CDC and TEA. The district will update stakeholders on adjustments as they are made. We are committed to keeping our Lil' Texans safe and look forward to partnering with our families to do what is best for kids.

Reminders of COVID procedures

As we continue the start of our second semester, we have seen an uptick in COVID cases reported to the district as a result of the new variant quickly spreading nationwide. In light of this, please remember these important aspects of our COVID procedures and support:

· Reporting COVID Results: Reporting positive COVID results helps us monitor cases at each school and inform potential close contacts. Please report any positive COVID results using this form.

· Don’t Attend if Sick or Awaiting Results: If a student or staff member is exhibiting symptoms or awaiting COVID test results, please do not come to school. This helps prevent potential COVID spread, and keeping our students and staff safe and healthy is our top priority.

· Testing at School: If a student or staff member begins exhibiting symptoms at school, he or she can receive a COVID test in the school nurse’s office. Consent forms for these tests are available on our COVID website. To reiterate the prior point, however, do not come to school if already sick – please seek an external testing location.

· In-District Testing: A testing location is available in the parking lot of Old Texan Stadium, across the street from Northwest ISD Stadium. This program, operated by a third-party vendor, is free for a general COVID test. Information about this location is available on our website.

Provide Input on our Next Superintendent

Northwest ISD would like your feedback on the important qualities and characteristics you would like to see in the district's next superintendent!

This anonymous survey, available online, asks for your views about Northwest ISD and what you believe are important qualities for the district’s next leader. This feedback will be used to create a candidate profile the Northwest ISD Board of Trustees will use to guide its search for the next superintendent.

Leasor Crass, the search firm assisting trustees in this process, will also meet with leaders in the district, schools (including student council and class leaders) and the community for further insight.

Northwest ISD’s next superintendent will be selected in the spring, and he or she will work with Dr. Ryder Warren, current superintendent, to provide a smooth leadership transition. More information about the search process will be communicated to families in the coming weeks.
