Dear Forney Family Parents & Staff,
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Future-Ready Day! We hope you’ll share your pictures with us on social media using #ForneyFamily.
At this time, with advice from national, state and local health and education experts, Forney ISD will extend virtual learning with a possible return on Monday, April 6. These are not easy decisions, but the suspension of normal school operations is in support of the Nation’s effort to “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students will not come to school. If you need items left in the school (technology, band instruments, medication, etc.), we will share a pick-up process this evening that will begin Wednesday. We will allow pick-up of items Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, March 18-20 from each campus.
Just because our facilities are closed to the public doesn’t mean we will stop serving our community. There are teams of people working around the clock to support our students and staff. We will continue to share resources we are putting in place from free wi-fi, meals, toiletries, school supplies, technology and virtual learning as quickly as possible.
We're collecting questions, and will continue sharing updates every day. The work continues and so does our commitment to preparing every student for the future.
