thank you message from the superintendent

Dear NEISD Community,

I want to sincerely thank you once again for your dedication to this district and for your perseverance during what was certainly a stressful week for everyone involved.

Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our students, staff and community. There are so many people who should be commended for their actions.

I began my morning visiting several of our elementary schools, and I was so impressed with the parents and staff that I visited with. Teachers were making students feel comfortable, and I saw families thanking principals for their open communication. I'd also like to recognize our police officers who worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of schools and neighborhoods.

Also, I couldn't believe the number of Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) who volunteered their time at so many schools. We certainly have some impressive parents.

I know many of our staff members spent the past few days answering questions from concerned parents and citizens. I certainly appreciate that and everything else you do on a daily basis.

All of this combined makes me so proud to be a part of this wonderful school district.


Brian G. Gottardy, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
