    Due to the unforeseen COVID-19 pandemic and requirements for social distancing, for the safety of students and staff, we regret to inform you that the Junior/Senior Prom that was scheduled for May 02nd, 2020, will be cancelled. We realize that a lot of students, staff, and parents worked really hard to prepare for the upcoming prom, but safety for all stakeholders is our utmost priority.

    Respectfully,

    Dr. Daniels

    March 31, 2020,

     

    As of today Governor Abbott has issued a new executive order that requires schools to close through May 3, 2020.  Therefore, Agua Dulce ISD will be closed through May 3, 2020 to support our community and health care professionals in the ongoing goal of containing the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Additionally, all extracurricular activities, practices and athletic events are suspended through May 4, 2020.

    Our meal services and remote learning will continue as posted on the Agua Dulce ISD website.  If you have questions about either, don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Additionally, Agua Dulce ISD asks the broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness:

    • Don’t shake hands
    • Wash your hands regularly
    • Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded places and maintaining 3 to 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length)
    • If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups
    • For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor your symptoms. Students who have traveled should plan to stay home for two weeks after arriving home. Please contact your campus to let them know, and this will be considered an excused absence.
    • If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice .
    • Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold.
    • Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care.

    This is a difficult time for our community, state and country.  I can’t tell you how much we miss your children.  We will continue to support you and your children as well as we can, and please do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can help you in any way. 

     

    May God bless you and keep you safe!!   

     

     

    Sincerely,

    Richard Wright

    Dear Senior Parents,

    I want to extend my sympathies for our students that have been affected by school being postponed/cancelled.  I understand that they have missed out a lot.  However, I just want to communicate how important it is for all senior students to complete the coursework that is assigned to them.  In order for students to receive a high school diploma, they must pass all of their classes and be in good “academic standing.”  It is very important that students complete all of their work.

    As per Mr. Wright, the Superintendent of Schools, we will definitely have a graduation ceremony.  Due to the Coronavirus, we obviously have to take necessary safety precautions, but we will have a ceremony as soon as we can (whether that’s May 22nd—scheduled graduation night, or sometime in June, July, or even August).

    If you have any questions or concerns, please email the teacher or myself, or call the school.

    Respectfully,

    Dr. Daniels

  • Agua Dulce Parents,

    I want to thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to work at educating all of our students in the midst of COVID-19.  

    As you know, there have been quite a few changes handed down from federal, state, county governments, and sometimes those changes occur daily. ADISD wants to be as transparent as possible in sending communication to you, and receiving emails and phone calls from you.

    Our goal is to maintain safety for all of our students and staff at ADISD while providing the best quality education that we possibly can.  In addition, we have teachers and staff working very hard to ensure that meals are provided for breakfast and lunch.

    We are pleased that all of the homework packets have been picked up and online applications are being utilized.   Please encourage your child to complete assigned work and turn it in on Monday, and then pick up another homework packet.  Some work has been assigned for two or three weeks, so please email your child’s teacher regarding any concerns that you may have. Grades will be inserted in a timely manner.  If there’s something I can do for you, please call the school.

    We have sent a list of teacher emails through skyward

    Again, thank you for your help.

    Respectfully,

    Dr. Daniels

    Agua Dulce ISD will be closed starting March 24, 2020 through April 10, 2020 to support our community and health care professionals in the ongoing goal of containing the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Additionally, all extracurricular activities, practices and athletic events are suspended while we are closed.  Classes will resume hopefully on April 14, 2020. 

    We do not make this decision lightly. We fully realize it presents significant difficulties to working parents. However, we are hopeful that these measures will better ensure the long-term health and safety of children, staff, and the larger community. 

    Agua Dulce ISD is finalizing logistics on distance learning options and the distribution of food to address children’s nutritional needs while school is out. More information and guidance will be made available on our website by March 24, 2020. We will also take this time to further clean schools, buses and restock custodial and nursing supplies.

    Additionally, Agua Dulce ISD asks the broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness:

    • Don’t shake hands
    • Wash your hands regularly
    • Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded places and maintaining 3 to 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length)
    • If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups
    • For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor your symptoms. Students who have traveled should plan to stay home for two weeks after arriving home. Please contact your campus to let them know, and this will be considered an excused absence.
    • If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice .
    • Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold.
    • Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care

     

    This is a quickly changing situation.  We will continue to monitor information, assess conditions continuously and provide the next updates as necessary via our website and email.

    Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in Agua Dulce ISD stay safe and healthy.  We have an incredible community and we will get through this difficult time together with hope and determination in our hearts.

     

    Sincerely,

    Richard Wright

    AGUA DULCE ISD RECEIVES A “B” RATING

     

    The Texas Education Agency on Wednesday, August 14 released academic accountability ratings for school districts and campuses in Texas. The A through F ratings are based primarily on standardized tests taken by students in grades three through 12 during the 2018-2019 school year.  2019 is the first year individual schools received A-F letter grades.

     

    Agua Dulce ISD overall rating improved from a 72 “C” to an 86 “B” rating.

    Agua Dulce High School received an 82 “B” rating.

    Agua Dulce Elementary received an 86 “B” rating with 4 distinctions. Distinction designations were in ELA/Reading, Mathematics, Postsecondary Readiness, and Comparative Closing the Gaps.

     

    The district is excited to see growth across domains and we congratulate students and staff on progress made. We are grateful to our educators for their commitment to our students’ success and our families for their partnership in our success. Our district's ratings are an indication of the hard work happening in our schools to provide opportunities for student success.

     

    It truly is an exciting time at Agua Dulce ISD. We are preparing for the 2019-2020 academic year and it is also a time to celebrate last year's accomplishments. 

     

    We are LONGHORN PROUD!

    Interim Superintendent of Schools

  • 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.

    Sincerely,

    Nora Lopez

    Interim Superintendent Agua Dulce ISD
