KISD Health Services Policy

February 14, 2017

Dear Ridge Parents,

 KISD Health Services Policy states that parents must keep their sick children home from school until they have been without fever (temperature under 100 degrees) for 24 hours from onset of fever, to prevent spreading illness to others.  This is a crucial period of time when your child is contagious, and it puts the other students and staff at risk. Students with fever at school are sent home. Please consider this information when your child is sick.

Do not hesitate to contact our school nurse, Monica Perry, RN 817-744-1720, with any questions.

Kind regards,

Dave Hadley, Principal

Flu Season is Here!

Dear Ridge Parents,

Flu season is just getting underway in our area.  Consider the following information when you send your student to school:
 
Parents should keep their sick children home from school until they have been without fever (temperature under 100 degrees) for 24 hours, to prevent spreading illness to others.
 
Flu is spread from person to person through coughing and sneezing. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds to help prevent germs from spreading.
 
If a child experiences flu symptoms, parents should contact their child’s doctor quickly. Some children may benefit from an antiviral medication, which can be prescribed by a doctor and can help lessen the number of days that a child is sick with the virus. To be effective, antiviral medication should be taken within 12-48 hours after flu symptoms begin.
 
It’s also important to know the difference between cold and flu. Flu is a serious illness, and children who have the flu should always stay home from school. Flu symptoms include fever, along with chills, cough, sore throat, headache or muscle aches. Symptoms of a common cold include stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat and hacking cough. Often, cold symptoms come on gradually.

Graduation Day Information

Dear Senior Parent/Senior:

The Fossil Ridge High School Class of 2017 Commencement Ceremony is fast approaching, and will be held at College Park Center at the University of Texas at Arlington on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 4 p.m. This world-class venue includes an intimate view of the ceremony from all seats, a large video board to see your graduate as they walk across the stage, free parking, and live streaming of the ceremony for friends and family to view over the internet.

Each Fossil Ridge high school graduate will be allotted TEN (10) tickets for family and friends to attend their respective graduation ceremony. We realize that some families may need more or fewer than the ten allotted tickets per graduate. Therefore, we are asking parents to complete a Ticket Declaration Form for each graduate per household to declare a need for more tickets. The purpose of the Ticket Declaration Form is to identify those families that need more than the allotted ten tickets per graduate and those families that need fewer than the ten allotted tickets per graduate. If the ten ticket allotment is sufficient, there is no need to fill out a form

All Ticket Declaration Forms must be completed and returned to the front office reception desk by 4 p.m. Friday, March 3, 2017. No form will be accepted after this date. The results of the random drawing will be communicated to the selected graduating students by Thursday, March 9, 2017. Tickets will be distributed to graduating students on Friday, May 26th at the conclusion of graduation practice. Every effort will be made to address the need for additional tickets.

The Ticket Declaration Form is included in this letter as well as on the Fossil Ridge High School website or in the office. Please make sure to keep a copy of your Ticket Declaration Form for your records. If you have any questions please call the front office at 817-744-1700. 

Sincerely,
Tracy Arsenault,​​Academic Dean
