Please Do Not Visit Middle Schools This Week

Senior Laptop Return Info From Shaikh

Here are the specific times that you can turn your laptops in before the end of the year. Remember that you will turn in both the laptop and the charger (there is a fee for missing chargers).

Please remove all covers and stickers before turning them in- we will not accept laptops that still have covers and stickers on them. However, we will accept usable clean covers if you no longer need them, for school loaners and learners in need.

The times for collection in the Media Center are:

  • Tuesday - 5/21/2019 (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM)

From the New Tech Clinic

  • Policies have changed within CISD, medication is no longer allowed to be sent home with learners. Parents, this means you will need to come up and check out any medication that has been brought to the clinic throughout the year. All medication not claimed by the last day of school will be disposed of properly.
  • If you have received an Immunization Notification from me this week, please update the record as soon as you can, so your learner will be able to pick up his/her schedule before school.
  • Learners, please be safe and enjoy your much needed break! See you next year!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach me by email at or call 214-496-5900 and ask for the nurse.

Thank you,

Nurse Faulkner
