Flu season is here

Federal Court Approves Postponement of RISD Board Election Until November
On February 11, a U.S. District Court granted permission for Richardson ISD to postpone its 2019 Board of Trustees election—usually held in May—until the November 5, 2019 general election.

“This is the ruling we anticipated and our next step will be to finalize a transition plan to our new 5-2 electoral system by August 7,” said RISD Board President Justin Bono. "This ruling means that November’s Trustee election will be the first to implement the new electoral system and include certain single-member districts.”

Flu season is here

Flu Season Is Upon Us
Flu season has arrived in North Texas. If your student experiences influenza-like symptoms such as fever with a cough or sore throat, please keep them home to rest and recover.

RISD takes additional precautions at schools this time of year, from increased efforts to remind students about healthy practices like hand washing, to increased frequency of cleaning high-traffic, high-touch areas on campus.

If your child has had a fever, don't send them to school until they’ve been fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medicine, and please remember to alert your school nurse if your child is absent with flu-like symptoms.

Richardson School Board Votes Unanimously to End Voting Rights Act Lawsuit
RISD to move toward 5-2 electoral plan with five single member districts and two at-large representatives; board president calls the move a win for educational equity

The Richardson ISD School Board voted unanimously this week to end a Voting Rights Act lawsuit regarding the way trustees will be elected in the future. The president of the board described the board as “united and committed,” and he called the action a win for equity in education. The decision to settle the suit means the parties will seek federal court approval to change this year’s school board election to November. Upon court approval, oting for three seats will occur in November, as opposed to May, after the board develops a transition plan that phases in the new single member districts.
