School Board Approve COVID-19 Leave Days for Employees

The Argyle ISD Board of Trustees approved a resolution regarding extended COVID-19 leave for all Eagle staff during a Special Board Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021.

Trustees approved eight days of COVID-19 leave for Argyle ISD employees who test positive for the virus. These are added to the current allotment of five local sick days each employee receives at the start of their contract. 

The Argyle ISD administration made the recommendation to assist employees with additional days if they test positive. If an employee tests positive they are now able to access these additional days. 

These additional days are retroactive to the start of the employee’s contract for the 2021-2022 school year.

“We are grateful to our Argyle ISD Trustees for supporting our employees by providing these additional sick leave days,” said Dr. Telena Wright, Argyle ISD Superintendent. “These extra leave days will provide relief to our staff.”
