Dear Parents, Staff and Community Members,

 

I hope each of you had a safe and relaxing winter break!

 

Everman ISD is off to a great second semester, and we appreciate all of the support given to our staff and students.  We are excited to welcome our students back on January 5, 2021.

 

With COVID-19 cases on the rise, the district is closely monitoring local health conditions and remains committed to the well-being and safety of our students and staff. 

 

Below are steps you can take to help us mitigate and prevent the spread of COVID-19:

 

  • Facemasks are strongly encouraged for all students, staff, and visitors at all district facilities.
  • Screen your health and your child's health daily. If you or your child is experiencing symptoms, please stay home, notify your child's school, get tested, and stay home until results are received. 
  • Strongly consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine for you and all eligible individuals in your home. Individuals (ages 5 and up) are now eligible for a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

 

As we move into a new semester, I would like to recognize and honor our Everman ISD Board of Trustees.  January is School Board appreciation month and without a shadow of a doubt, we have the best Board of Trustees in the State of Texas.  I am grateful for the leadership and support of each Trustee!

 

Also, I am pleased to announce that Christopher Rose has been appointed to serve as the interim principal for Everman Joe C. Bean High School starting January 24, 2022.  As some of you may know, Mr. Rose has served as the Assistant Principal for Everman High School since August 2019.  We are excited about the continuity in leadership that Mr. Rose will provide as the interim principal.  He is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure success for all students. 

 

I would also like to thank Dr. Layne for his service and leadership of Everman High School for the past 2 ½ years and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.

 

Finally, I’m excited to share that the district will begin a reading challenge for all elementary students and a book of the month for secondary students this month.  I know our students will do a great job and accomplish their reading goals! 

 

As a reminder, our next COVID-19 vaccine clinic is January 13, 2022, in the Everman High School cafeteria, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.I’m looking forward to a great second semester as we continue Moving Beyond Limits!

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Felicia Donaldson

Superintendent of Schools
