District Announcements
Ebola Information
Aledo ISD has fielded several calls from parents inquiring about the news of Ebola infections in Dallas. We are in contact with the Parker County Health Department and are getting guidance from them in our planned responses. To date, there are no reported cases of any staff, students, or family members connected with Aledo ISD that have been exposed to the Ebola virus or who are in isolation due to a potential exposure.

It is important to point out that, according to health officials, individuals are not considered contagious until symptoms appear. According to the Parker County Health Department there is no risk of infection to staff, students or family members who may have had indirect contact – through multiple degrees of separation – with someone who was potentially exposed or is in isolation.

Karey Moore Wins Statewide Hero Award

Karey Moore, Aledo High School Pre-AP Chemistry/Chemistry teacher, was granted good news recently – she is the 2014 Prestigious Hero of the Bayard H. Friedman Score-A-Goal in the Classroom award for Most Outstanding Science/Chemistry teacher in Texas!

Ms. Moore was one of 988 nominations, according to Ernie Horn, executive director of the organization. She will receive a crystal medallion and a $1,000 honorarium from the Walsh Foundation Nov. 12 during a magical evening hosted by the Shrine Circus. Ms. Moore will parade under the Big Top at Cowtown atop a circus elephant, and be named the Shriners Hero of the Year. Nov. 12 also happens to be Ms. Moore’s birthday.


Horn said Ms. Moore was selected for having an incredible work ethic. “Students and colleagues who spoke of her said she has excellent communication skills with a cross-section of students,” he said. “While chemistry is not a subject that typically lends itself to laughter, students say she uses her sense of humor and joy in the classroom and in other discussions.” READ MORE.
