Spur ISD American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary & Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III) Stakeholder Survey. Due to COVID-19, the Federal Government has approved the American Rescue Plan and Elementary & Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund. Recently the State of Texas made those allotments available to schools and we must begin the planning process of how to best utilize these funds. Spur ISD is seeking your input as we work diligently to select the best options for our students. We are currently receiving STAAR Testing results back from the state and feel pretty good about where our students are academically but we are also seeing some areas that need to be addressed. Typically, summer results in some learning loss and the school closures from March 2019 to the end of the 2019-2020 school year added to this loss. We will be looking at the data from STAAR Testing along with stakeholder input in an effort to come up with the best plan possible. Below you will find the link to the ESSER III survey. We welcome all stakeholder input. Students and staff have already received this survey. https://forms.gle/8YxqUcY7a8qkREj38

The Department of Health has contacted Spur ISD in regards to providing a location to vaccinate students between the ages of 12-18. If you are interested in your children receiving the Pfizer vaccine for Covid-19 please fill out the form below. If you are not interested in your child being vaccinated you do not need to fill out the form. Spur ISD is using this form to gauge interest from our parents in order to set up a clinic if we have parents interested. Spur ISD would like to offer this option to anyone that feels they would like for their children to receive the vaccine. Spur ISD is not in anyway saying you must vaccinate your children for Covid-19. If interested please fill out the form. Thank you https://forms.gle/of2CYjt4L1bFPHeg9

I received this email from a coach from Wildorado ISD today. Great job Jorden Zarate!!!!! Way to represent you, your family, and Spur ISD!!!! Good afternoon. My name is Mi Rendon and I am an assistant track coach at Wildorado ISD and out of all of the amazing things I witnessed on the track it was what happened off the track and was by one of your athletes. It was just a small simple gesture but one I will always talk about and use as an example when we talk to our athletes about how an athlete should act. This young man could have easily past right by me, just as other boys AND men did but instead hurriedly came up to offer to carry two heavy cases of water to his competitors camp without expecting any reward but was rewarded with only a simple sandwich and he said we made his day but I can assure you it was the other way around!!! Good luck at state, especially the Chik Fil A kid! He deserves a medal! Good job Spur! >

Chess Club Announcement Attention Spur families- we will be having an informational meeting and taking sign ups during the lunch periods on Thursday, March 11th for a competitive chess club. We aren't just doing puzzles, we're going to travel to play other teams and enter tournaments. It will be open to grades 1-12, with age appropriate practices and activities. We plan to start practices the week after Spring Break, which will be once a week for about an hour. We will do all we can to deconflict with other extra-curricular activities and won't hold it against kids who miss now and then. Encourage your kids, if you think they might be interested. There will be no cost involved in any of the local activities and you'll get a free online chess account to practice with and learn on as well. For more information, please contact David Pafford at email@example.com, (209) 659-5972, or visit his Facebook page. Thank you!
