The Moody ISD maintenance staff have recently found and removed a number of young rattlesnakes around the district while performing regular maintenance duties. The snake locations and removals have been random and we currently do not have an isolated area where we feel the snakes may be located. We are consulting with local pest control personnel on our next steps. We have instructed our staff and students to be extra careful when outside and on our playgrounds. Staff and students have been instructed to communicate and be vigilant as they look for anything that brings up a concern.
We encourage parents to discuss this issue with their children and to be careful around their homes and farms.
