Here's all you need to know people: Trustees Ramos, Phillips, Luebanos, and Paz all voted to delay the return to school four more weeks. Trustees Evans, Jackson, Brookins, Darr, and Robbins voted to return Oct. 5.
When is the first day of school for next year? August 16, 2021? August 23, 2021?
What was the decision by the board for returning to in person?
I'd like to find someone who could help my 5th grader more effectively/efficiently manage her school/home-work. Someone whose experienced with kids and can help with time-management/prioritization/homework to help set her up for success. If you know anyone that fits the bill, please send them my way.
Children need to be in school learning face-to-face with their teachers! Open FWISD schools now!!
Well, it's 8:50am and I don't think the system is working. Again!
My child's log in information. Still isn't working. I've tried and tried to get hold to someone but thats not working. I guess she will miss another day of school. We will just wait until someone from many emails and phone calls contact us.
Sebastian #FWISDFirstDay así fue su primer día de clases . Rufino Mendoza El. 4th grade Ms Lyon class 😊
I think 100% of parents are deciding to send their kids to school after all this trouble they are going threw with the online classs
What is going on. Our child can't login and both Leonard Middle School or the FWISD Offices phones have been busy for over an hour. If there is some problem wouldn't an email or text or something be sent out to the parents?
Buen dia ya mañana comiensas las Clases en linea en la escuela de mis hijos aun no entregan Chromebooks y hotspot... Me comunique a la escuela solo dice ellos se van a comunicar... Preguta Que otra alternative tengo si no nos dan un Cromebook porque me dineron Que son limitados gracias
How do we get a chrome book for use? We need one for my student. He was able to use another device last year but this year we don't have that device. I was told by the school they don't have none.
