President Torres: Best Wishes for Holiday Season from Trustees

AISD and Austin Community Members:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I want to take this opportunity to wish our staff, students and families a safe and restful holiday season. And, whether you will be traveling or staying close to home, we hope that you will have an enjoyable break with family and friends.

I also want to express the board’s appreciation of everyone’s hard work on behalf of our students. For without your dedication and support, we would not be able celebrate the successes of the past year and be positioned and looking forward to another great year when we return.

As a reminder, there will be no classes after Thursday, Dec. 18, and the district will close beginning Saturday, Dec. 20. The district will re-open and classes will resume Jan. 5, 2015.

On behalf of the AISD Board of Trustees, I want to express our sincere thanks to the Austin Association of Public School Administrators for giving each of us a beautiful red poinsettia.
