The Reese Report
January 21, 2022
Note from Dr. Erdie
The James Reese Career and Technical Center staff wish you a Happy New Year!
We are looking forward to a wonderful Spring Semester. It is application time for FBISD students. We are looking to continue growing the number of students attending James Reese CTC next year. Please share the application information with other families in FBISD.
Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases this month, we have rescheduled The Reese Experience Night to February 10, 2022. We feel having prospective students visit James Reese CTC is important and moving it back provides the best opportunity for an in person event to occur. If the COVID-19 positive cases are still on the rise, we will shift the event to virtual.
FBISD strongly encourages staff and students to wear masks. In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, our classrooms are cleaned between the AM and PM cohorts and our staff have disinfectant spray and wipes available as needed.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
