April 17, 2020
Dear Wortham ISD families and community,
This afternoon, Governor Abbott ordered schools to remain closed for the remainder of the school year to keep our students, families, and community safe. While this isn’t the news we hoped for, I feel confident it’s the best decision based on the current data and the advice from the medical professionals. We will continue to provide remote instruction for our students as well as provide curb-side meal pickup on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the closure period.
Please watch our website, social media, and Remind for updates on instructional packet pickup and drop off and for more information regarding end-of-the-year procedures and events. We appreciate all the positive feedback from our community as we work to meet the needs of our students and families. We miss you all and know that we will be ready for our students to return when the COVID-19 situation has improved.
Our teachers are working on virtual and at-home learning opportunities for our students during our school cancellation. Please watch our website, Remind, and social media postings for specific guidance regarding instructional support while students are not in school.
During this time, our maintenance staff is working diligently to sanitize our facilities and vehicles with an industrial-strength disinfectant that will kill the virus on contact. We will continue to clean and prepare our schools for our students’ return.
We will continue to communicate daily with TEA and our local and state health departments and monitor the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak. Thank you for your patience as we try to gather as much information as we can to make the best decisions for our students and staff to keep us all safe and healthy. We will post updates as we gather more information in the coming days.
Effective Feb 18, 2020, WISD has made some changes to the consequences of students who are found to be in possession of tobacco, e-cigarettes and vaping devices.
