School Cancelled Friday, February 24th

February 23, 2017

Dear Parents and Students:

School has been cancelled for tomorrow, February 24, 2017.  Please read the following message from Dr. Holcombe:

Parents and Guardians,

We are seeing another upswing in the number of absences due to illness. Right now, we have 121 absences and others waiting to go home. Currently, we have reports of flu, strep, stomach virus, and pink eye. We are going to try to get everyone away for an extra day and allow our custodial staff and our transportation staff to disinfect all the buildings and buses. I apologize for any inconvenience this extra day off  may cause, but believe it to be in the best interest of our students. This day will not have to be made-up.

Thank you for your understanding.

Coy Holcombe






The baseball and softball tournaments will continue as scheduled.  Athletes that are ill are asked to contact their coaches and stay home so they do not infect others.  The Spanish Club field trip scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed to a later date.




Thank you for sending your child to Eustace High School!





Chris Whorton, Principal

School Holiday Friday, January 27th

January 26, 2017

Dear Parents and Students:

For various reasons, we are going to have an unscheduled holiday tomorrow (Friday, January 27th). One of the reasons is that we are experiencing a higher than normal absentee rate due to illness. We are hoping that a little extra time will help alleviate that situation. Due to Eustace ISD having five extra days built into this year’s school calendar, this day will not have to be made-up.

The NHS Winter Dance that was scheduled for this Saturday has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 11th. Basketball games scheduled for tomorrow will be played as scheduled. High school detention scheduled for today is rescheduled for next Tuesday, January, 31st. Baseball and softball practices will continue as scheduled by the coach, however students that are ill are excused and will not be permitted to attend.

I apologize for the late notification of this unscheduled holiday.

Thank you for sending your child to Eustace High School!

Chris Whorton, Principal
