A policy change regarding the use of E-Cigarettes and vape pens passed by the 88th Texas Legislature will impact our discipline practices starting with the 23-24 school year. House Bill 114 (HB 114) was voted into law to address the increasing concerns around e-cigarettes, vaping, marijuana, and THC-related products among our youth. The Bill mandates that any student found in possession of, under the influence of, selling, gifting, or delivering these substances on or within a 300-feet radius of any school premises, will be immediately removed and placed in a Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP). You can access the full version of the Bill here: https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/88R/billtext/pdf/HB00114F.pdf Please take a moment to discuss the implications of this new law and the new changes to our disciplinary practice with your children. Emphasize the importance of adhering to school policies and laws for their welfare and the betterment of the school community. Your cooperation and support in ensuring that Queen City ISD remains a safe, healthy, and thriving educational environment for our students is deeply appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns about this new policy, please contact your child’s campus principal. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our students and shape a better future for them.
Pursuant to the TEC Code 39.053, the QCISD Board of Trustees will conduct a public hearing on July 31 at 6:00 PM at the Thornton Administration Office concerning the evaluation of the effectiveness of SCE interventions for students failing to meet the EOC standards.
An accident at Morris Upchurch Middle School earlier today resulted in one of the stage curtains catching on fire. Cass County firefighters were called to the scene and quickly extinguished it. Thankfully, there was minimal damage and no injuries, and the clean-up process has already started. QCISD thanks all the first responders for their speedy response and help today.
