Argyle ISD Mask Requirement Remains In Place, Following TEA Guidance

Argyle ISD has received guidance from the Texas Education Agency in response to Governor Abbott lifting the mask mandate.

The district will continue to follow TEA's requirements that remain in place for all students, teachers and staff to wear a mask when inside a school building, school facility or facility used for school activities. Students in Pre-K through 3rd Grade are not required to wear a mask.

The health and safety of our students, teachers and staff is our highest priority. We believe by continuing to wear masks it will allow us to remain successful in providing in-person learning at our campuses for the final 10 weeks of the school year. Our teachers and staff have been on the frontlines since August and we are excited they have now been prioritized for the COVID-19 vaccine.

We are grateful for our parents and community partnering with us as we strive to finish the school year Argyle Strong!

Wow! Great Honor for Remedy A Cappella

Argyle High School's talented Remedy A Cappella has received a national nomination for the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards in the category of Best Country Song.

The song "GIRL" was from Remedy's latest release Waves and features junior Kimmy Giese on the solo and can be streamed on all music platforms. This nomination and award process is the equivalent of the A Cappella Genre of the Music Grammys -- which means these AHS students were nominated alongside college, semi-professional and world-wide professional groups for this award. Congratulations to Remedy and director Will Griswold!

School Employees Now Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine

Denton County Public Health announced that all school employees are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

"This is outstanding news for our teachers and staff in Argyle ISD and we are grateful they are being prioritized," Argyle ISD Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright said. "Our teachers and staff have been on the frontlines of the pandemic since August doing an amazing job serving our students and this vaccine opportunity will be reassuring for them."
