Last night around 9pm we were notified that one mosquito was caught in our area in a Vector control trap and tested positive for the West Nile Virus. We take the health and safety of our students and staff very seriously but there is nowhere to go to escape mosquitos in Texas. They come into our cars and homes every time we open a door. The only thing we can do is to take proper precautions. Use a bug spray containing Deet and wear long sleeve shirts and pants and avoid outdoor activities when mosquitoes are most active. The City of Agua Dulce is doing all it can by spraying numerous times a day and placing anti mosquito treatments in standing water. We have mosquito spray available for your children. If you do not wish for child to use the spray please notify the campus office and we will honor your request. Our schools will remain open until we receive a recommendation from the health department to do otherwise.
Thank you for your understanding and support,
Agua Dulce ISD Superintendent.
Some West Nile Virus(WNV) facts.
According to the Centers for Disease Control the West Nile Virus cases have been reported in all of the continental United States. There are no vaccines to prevent or medications to treat WNV in people. Fortunately, most people infected with WNV do not have symptoms. About 1 in 5 people who are infected develop a fever and other symptoms. About 1 out of 150 infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, illness. You can reduce your risk of WNV by using insect repellent and wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants to prevent mosquito bites. Those at greatest risk are people with compromised immune systems and people over 50. Currently there are only 3 States not reporting WNV activity and they are West Virginia New Hampshire and Vermont.
Dear parents and staff of Agua Dulce ISD-
This Wednesday all school districts in the state are to receive a letter grade from TEA. I have attached a statement from the Texas Association of School Administrators. The new method has systems built in place that make it difficult for small school districts with a high number of low socieo- economic students to score well. I support TASA’s stance on the A-F System. I feel our campuses are working harder than ever to give your children the best education possible. I do not believe any grade we receive is an accurate representation of the quality of education our staff provides for the children of Agua Dulce.

Becoming a District of Innovation will give us the opportunity and flexibility to provide a more personal, strategic and transparent plan for all stakeholders of ADISD. We want what is best for our students, teachers and their families.
