Principal Selected for 2021-22

We would like to announce that Mrs. Roxxy Griffin has been named Principal at Boyd Elementary School.


Mrs. Griffin joins us from Richardson ISD where she served as the Principal at Carolyn Bukhair Elementary, a position she has held since 2018. Prior to her current administrative role, she served as Principal at Northwood Hills Elementary and Assistant Principal at Skyview and White Rock Elementary. Mrs. Griffin was also an Instructional Specialist and Teacher for RISD.


We are excited to have Mrs. Griffin join the Allen ISD team. We believe her experience in successfully leading Bilingual and Title I campuses will have a tremendous impact on the Boyd community. A Meet and Greet will be scheduled with parents in August. Please help us welcome Mrs. Griffin to the Blackhawk Family.

COVID-19 vaccination efforts in our community

We wanted to share some information with you regarding the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination efforts in our community.


The Allen Fire Department and Ayman Care have joined together to offer free, voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations to children ages 12 and up. The vaccines will be distributed on Saturday, May 22 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Ford Middle School auxiliary gymnasium (630 Park Place, Allen, TX 75002). Allen ISD designated the Ford gym as a site to support the vaccination effort, however, a COVID-19 vaccination is optional for families and not a requirement for any student who enrolls in summer school, summer camp, or classes this fall.


All minors must be accompanied by an adult, and a form of ID must be presented on-site. For more information, please call Ayman Care at 972-288-9747.
