The attached picture shows the flow of traffic for student drop-off and pick-up. The RED arrow is for ALL student drop-off in the mornings. For pick-up in the afternoon, the RED arrow is for elementary students. The YELLOW arrow is for jr high and high school student pick-up in the afternoon. If both elementary and JrH/ HS students need to be picked up, please start in the red line to pick up the elementary student then merge into the yellow line. For the safety of our students and to keep the traffic from backing up on HWY 16, we ask that parents stay in the vehicles during pick up. Teachers will escort elementary students to their vehicles. We are looking forward to a great year!!
8/8/2021 Dear parent or guardian: In accordance with Chapter 38, Subchapter E of the Education Code, the Board of Cherokee Independent School District has adopted a policy to allow authorized Cherokee ISD school personnel who have been adequately trained to administer an unassigned epinephrine auto-injector to a person who is reasonably believed to be experiencing an anaphylactic reaction. Authorized and trained individuals may administer an epinephrine auto-injector at any time to a person experiencing anaphylaxis on a school campus. The District will ensure that at each campus a sufficient number of school personnel and volunteers are trained to administer epinephrine so that at least one trained individual is present on campus during regular school hours and whenever school personnel are physically on site for school-sponsored activities. Authorized and trained individuals may administer an unassigned epinephrine auto-injector to a person experiencing anaphylaxis (at an off-campus school event or while in transit to or from a school event) when an unassigned epinephrine auto-injector is available. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please feel free to call Regina Randolph at (325) 622-4298. Sincerely, Jennifer Bordner Superintendent

For the 2021-2022 school year, Cherokee ISD will offer healthy meals every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year. As such, Cherokee ISD will process household applications during School Year 2021-2022 to ensure student eligibility for free or reduced-price meals during the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 school year while 2022-2023 applications are being processed.
All incoming 6th-12th grade (boys and girls) that didn't receive a physical last year need to have one before their sport begins. Hendrick Clinic in San Saba is offering free physicals Monday -Wednesday 8:00am - 3:30pm. Please call before and make sure they can see you on that day (325) 372-5701. Coach White and Coach Bond will have the physical packets. There will be packets in the front office as well.
