North News - October 30, 2020


Good Evening North Families,
Thank you for a great picture day on Monday! I want to thank our wonderful PTO volunteers for enduring the rain and cold to help with our remote learners. I want to thank each of you for your patience as we navigated something new. Here are your weekly reminders:

Complete CISD Family Survey by Nov. 20
The Fall 2020 CISD Family Survey is open now through Friday, Nov. 20. To participate, visit, then select your child(ren)’s school. If you have multiple children in CISD, we ask that you take the survey for each school your child attends. Please email, if you would like to share any additional feedback or insight not covered in the survey or have any additional comments to share with the district.

The North Pole
Coppell Middle School North would like to introduce our holiday assistance program called, “The North Pole.” This program is designed to help North families facing financial difficulties this holiday season and could use a little help to make their North student’s holiday a little brighter. This program is for North Students only as other programs are available to assist the whole family. To qualify for this program, the North student must participate in the CISD free and reduced lunch plan. Holiday wish list items will total (on average) $50 per student. All information collected is confidential and will only be used for item collection purposes. If you would like your student to participate in The North Pole Program, please complete the form attached to the email sent on 10/30/20. The form is available in English and Spanish. Return the completed form to Brit Fahey at by Monday, November 13th, 2020.

iPad Update Reminder
Reminder, that all students with a CISD iPad need to update to IOS (iPad Operating System) 14. It is available for download in “Settings” on all district-issued iPads. To do this, the user will go to Settings, go to General, touch Software Update, touch Download and Install. This will begin the process. The user will need to agree to the terms and conditions before the download begins. It should take fewer than 10 minutes to download the update, and another 15 or 20 minutes to install the software.

Free Meals for Elementary & Distance Learners
As a reminder, CISD will offer free meals to all in-person elementary students and all virtual students (PK-12 and all children under 18) through the end of December 2020.  No sign up is required for in person elementary students.
