Recruitment Season

Hello New Tech Parents and Learners,

We are entering our big push for recruitment for the 2019-2020 school year. Every year we host 8th graders on our campus for 3 days of Shadow Days. This year's Shadow Days are this week! We will also be holding recruitment meetings for parents over the course of the next few weeks. Please pass along the flyer about our New Tech @ Nite event to your friends. Last year, it was our most successful recruitment event and it was amazing to see all of the rookies signing their commitment letters!

Know a homeschool or private school learner who wants to join us? We have a school day tour just for them on February 8th.

Have any recruitment questions? Don't hesitate to contact Steffany Batik.

Note from the Nurse

Influenza activity is increasing throughout Dallas County. As in past influenza seasons, the health and safety of all learners is a priority for New Tech. Since flu can spread easily from person to person, we need your help to prevent cases of flu in students and staff. It is important for all to take the following precautions at this time:

  • Monitor the health of your learner by checking for fever and other flu symptoms every morning. Symptoms of flu usually include fever with cough or sore throat, and sometimes runny nose, body aches, headache, vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Staff and learners with symptoms of the flu must stay at home and cannot return to school until they no longer have fever of 100 degrees or higher (without the use of fever reducing medications), diarrhea, or vomiting for at least 24 hours.
  • Ill learners should be encouraged to drink plenty of clear fluids to keep from becoming dehydrated.
  • Remind all household members to wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer regularly, cover their cough with their elbow or sleeve, and to avoid touching their face.
  • Have all eligible household members vaccinated for influenza.
