Weekly District Update 9-14-23

Welcome to Tarkington ISD’s weekly district update ~

There is no school for students tomorrow, Sept. 15, but it will be a professional development day for staff. Fridays off for students will go through the end of the first semester and then pick back up the last week in January. Fridays off for staff are called “Flex Days” on the 2023-24 Academic Calendar. This calendar is located on our website at tarkingtonisd.net.

The deadline is coming up fast to register your returning student online through Parent Portal. If you haven’t already done so, please be sure to complete the annual beginning-of-school registration for returning students by this Monday, Sept. 18. If you need help with creating your parent portal account or completing the returning student registration, please contact your campus registrar or Dana Burt at 346-532-2012 or email dburt1@tarkingtonisd.net. It is very important for you to complete this registration to be sure we have the most up-to-date emergency contact information, email address and other required documents on file.

Throughout the year we will be celebrating and honoring our educators and support staff who serve the children of this community. We would love for you to join us in celebrating the people who help make all professions possible! October is Principal Appreciation Month and October 2 is School Custodian Day. If you would like to join us in showing our campus principals some love during the month of October and/or our custodians on Oct. 2, please contact Cassie Gregory at 281-592-8781 or email info@tarkingtonisd.net. There is no gift too big or small – a handwritten note is as moving and can be as impactful as material things. Thank you for your consideration of a gift from the heart!
