Texas Border Business
Parents, Guardian and Staff,
Thank you for all your patience and support these past two weeks as we have collectively worked through the ever-changing developments regarding COVID-19. Our goal throughout the process has been to be responsive to provide as much support for our students and staff as possible. With that in mind, we are now needing to take steps to further limit the possible exposure to our students and employees as new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in our area.
Effective, Thursday, March 26, 2020, we are suspending all grab and go meal distributions. We are also suspending the on-site distribution of instructional packets. Instructional packets for the week of March 30-April 4 will be sent through the mail. Some of the Instructional packets contain online lessons as well.
We are working with our teachers and staff on the final implementation of online instruction through several sources that include Google Classroom and Edgenuity (E2020). I know that many of our teachers have started to reach out to their students and that process will continue in the coming days. The focus will be to continue with instruction as best as possible for as many students as possible within the limitations that we may face moving forward.
This is a continually developing situation with decisions made as conditions change regarding the pandemic and orders by our governing bodies. Please be sure to keep checking our official Facebook page, Twitter account, and website for updates.
This is unchartered territory for us all, and I know that we are always stronger together. Please be patient as we continue to work through this together. Your Mission CISD family is dedicated to doing their best under very challenging conditions. I am very grateful to the Mission CISD employees who have been able to report to work and those who are working from home.
Please continue to follow official directives and practice the social distancing requirements as they are issued and adjusted by the Center for Disease Control. The recommendations from our local health authorities are that if children or any family members feel sick to contact your physician. Also, to stay at home as much as possible.
Stay safe and be well,
Dr. Carol G. Perez
Superintendent of Schools
