It is always exciting when you can deliver great news to an employee. QISD was the recipient of a Grow Your Own Grant this year. One aspect of the grant was to fund tuition cost for a current para professional that would be completing their teaching degree in the next two years! Today Bethany Fatheree was the recipient of that "up to" $10,000 award. We are proud of Mrs. Fatheree!

Due to flooding QISD will be releasing students early. Parents may begin to pick their students up immediately. Buses will be boarding at approximately 1:30. If there is no parent or guardian at the house the students will be brought back to their home campus. If the bus can not safely get to your house your child will be brought back to their home campus. Parents that normally pick up their children need to pick them up at their normal pick up area.
