Asbestos Employee Notification:
From the early 1900's through the late 70's, asbestos products were used in building construction materials. Some uses of asbestos in building products were pipe insulation, steel fireproofing, vinyl tile and mastic, ceiling tiles, plaster, duct insulation, and various other uses. Asbestos is a known carcinogen which can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma and abdominal cancer. Asbestos can present a health hazard when it is crushed or pulverized and emits microscopic fibers. These tiny fibers then become airborne and find their way into your lungs causing the above-mentioned diseases.
The Fabens Independent School District (FISD) has taken action toward management of all asbestos material in the buildings. FISD has CONDUCTED an engineering survey which located most asbestos sources in these buildings. This inspection report is at your disposal in the front office. FISD has committed itself to protect occupants and employees from asbestos exposure.
If you have any questions please contact Mr. Javier Garay (915) 765-2680.

House Bill 5
While HB 5 will impact a number of areas in the Texas Education Code, the new law will significantly change the requirements for high school graduation, graduation planning and state testing requirements at all levels. HB 5 is designed to instill more flexibility in public education by enabling students to either pursue a traditional path into colleges and universities or move directly into the workforce to help fill what business leaders say is a critical skills shortage.
One Call NOW !!
We are happy to introduce the community to a new communication tool that will allow us to quickly send emergency or informational messages to residents. The use of the One Call Now notification service will help us keep everyone safe and informed.
The One Call Now system can deliver messages via phone, SMS text and/or email. Each resident can have up to six phone numbers and five email addresses assigned to them. This will allow for messages to be sent to home phones, work phone, cell phones, etc.
Over the next couple of weeks, you may be asked to provide additional contact numbers to be included in the One Call Now contact list. This will ensure that you will receive the messages at the appropriate phone numbers and email addresses.
By using this service, we are able to better communicate with residents while reducing the need to print and distribute notices. It will also allow us to send you urgent messages such as weather/evacuations, neighborhood watch advisories, or amber alerts.
Please know that none of your personal information will be shared with anyone. One Call Now takes the security and privacy of your personal information (i.e. phone numbers, email addresses) very seriously. This is never sold or shared – you will not receive any unsolicited calls as a result of using the service.
If you have any questions regarding the type of messages that will be sent using this system, please contact your campus office.
