Today, we will again have to adjust and combine our bus routes due to a shortage of bus drivers. Students who ride the busses that run on FM 1002 and FM 1795 will be a part of this combination. We expect the last group of students to be dropped off around 5:30 pm. This is the same route combination that the district ran for a couple of days last week. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working on finding more bus drivers in the district. Thank you for your patience.

Hello Big Sandy Family. Due to a shortage of bus drivers, the district will need to combine two bus routes again tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept. 7th and Thursday Sept. 8th) in the afternoon. Kids who ride the busses that run on FM 1002 and FM 1795 will be a part of this combination. We expect the last group of students to be dropped off around 5:30 pm. This is the same route combination that the district ran last Monday. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, give us a call. If you or anyone you know is interested in driving a bus for the district, give our Director of Transportation, Mr. Larry Strickland a call. We can always use more drivers in our district.

All bus riders who had guardians at home have been dropped off. All extracurricular activities scheduled for this evening are still on as a planned. Thank you for your patience the last two days as we have dealt with some irregular issues in our district.

Big Sandy ISD is proud to announce Mr. Mike Moore as its new Secondary Principal. Mr. Moore comes to the district after serving as an administrator in Alba-Golden, Spring Hill, and Lindale Independent School Districts. Before entering education, Mr. Moore spent ten years in the corporate world but finally found his calling in the classroom. “As a principal, I work diligently to provide leadership and direction for our campus that empowers teachers and staff to effectively educate and encourage all students to achieve success in life,” said Moore. “As I move forward in my educational leadership career, I will continue to work to inspire future leaders and develop innovative strategies and programs that help all students reach their potential.” Mr. Moore encourages individuals to take risks and step out of their comfort zones. He believes in celebrating students in campus activities and looks forward to building a sense of belonging and ownership in the Big Sandy ISD school community. “I’m excited to welcome Mr. Moore to the Wildcat Family,” said Mike Burns, Big Sandy ISD Superintendent. “I believe he will challenge our students, staff, and community to seek ways for our school district to improve. I look forward to him getting started in the district.”
