Flu Update and FFA Awards

by Coy Holcombe.  

Congratulations to the Eustace FFA program on their recent accomplishments and awards. At the Texas State Fair, Ethan Grimes, Billy Crocker, Austin Pogue, and Michael James were awarded a blue ribbon for best in class based on a point scale for their 24′ gooseneck lowboy trailer. On a scale of 1-100, these students received a 98 points for their trailer. 

Flu Update: While we continue to have confirmed cases of flu in our district, the absences for this week are down compared to last week. Yesterday, absences were as follows: HS – 20, MS – 22, IS – 7, PS – 23. The absences at the High School are down significantly from last week. Overall, we had 72 absences yesterday and an attendance rate of 95.1%. Usually, we have an attendance rate around 96%. Each campus is carefully monitoring not only the number absent, but the reason for the absences. Updates will continue to be posted to my Twitter account daily. These updates will be posted on the EISD homepage.
