Kathy was born on April 3, 1957, in Fort Worth, Texas to Earl Wesley Dromgoole, Jr. and Nancy Dromgoole. She was a person of deep religious faith.

Weatherford ISD Considers Limited Virtual Learning Platform

At this time, Weatherford ISD is considering offering a Limited Virtual Learning Academy (LVLA) option for K-12 students for Fall 2021 semester only. Your feedback is needed so we can better understand the priorities of our students, families and community, regarding the Limited Virtual Learning Academy as a potential option for K-12 students.

Please take a few minutes to complete this interest survey. This survey will need to be completed separately for each student in grades K-12 if there is interest in LVLA.

The survey will close on Friday, September 10 at 5:00 p.m. As always, our students’ and staff’s safety and well-being will remain the core of all our decisions and we continue to implement best practices, guidelines, and operational options so that we can support our community in the best way possible.

Parker County COVID-19 Drive-Through Testing

Weatherford ISD is proud to offer our Kanga Care Clinics in partnership with the Parker County Hospital District (PCHD). The service affords the opportunity for students and staff to have a telemedicine visit with a family physician or licensed nurse practitioner with the PCHD in the nurse’s clinic at our campuses.

Due to the incredible demand on the Kanga Care Clinics at the beginning of the school year, we encourage students who are symptomatic for COVID-19 to seek options outside of the Kanga Care Clinics rather than bringing an ill student to school to be tested. Parker County is offering another drive-through COVID-19 test clinic and will also be providing COVID vaccinations.

Labor Day Holiday

Monday, September 6, 2021 is a school holiday for students and staff in observance of Labor Day.
