Convocation 2020 Goes Virtual!

Due to COVID-19, Argyle ISD was unable to host this year's Convocation event in-person. Instead, this year's kickoff to the school year for all employees was held on the campuses virtually.

Keeping Our Eagles Safe: Personal Protective Equipment Has Arrived

The Argyle ISD campuses recently received shipments of PPE (personal protective equipment) to be distributed to staff and throughout district facilities. These supplies included hand sanitizer, face shields and reusable masks supplied by the Texas Education Agency.

Memorable Moment: Teachers Return to Classrooms

Last Wednesday marked a special day in Argyle ISD. It was the return to the campuses and classrooms for our teachers as they reported for the 2020-2021 school year.

For many, it was the return to their beloved rooms to work for the first time since early March. Their rooms were left behind as our schools closed for the remainder of the spring semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Argyle ISD is blessed with so many amazing teachers and we are grateful for their commitment and passion for serving our Eagles. We recognize that this year will be unlike any before and we stand together with our teachers to help and support them through so much uncertainty.

How About Those New Yearbooks!

Students from Argyle Intermediate School recently got the chance to pick up their yearbooks from the 2019-2020 school year. It was an unprecedented year in schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced schools to close in March. Due to the limitations of visitors, the pickup process was held outside the front door. It was great to see our Eagles back on campus and enjoying the memories from a year ago!
