Governor Greg Abbott has issued an executive order closing school facilities effective tomorrow, March 20, through Friday, April 3, to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Although the order closes campus facilities to students and non-essential staff, the District’s mission to educate students will continue during this Community Mitigation Period.
Administrators are diligently working on plans for educational instruction at home. The plans for grade-level specific lessons will roll out over the weekend with the intent of distance learning opportunities beginning Monday. There is a plan for those students who do not have access to a device or internet. Campuses will be reaching out to students soon with specifics on meeting this need. Again, grade-level specific plans will be rolled out over the next couple of days.
District services already in place, such as Free Curbside Meals and extra, supplemental online educational resources, will continue throughout this Community Mitigation Period.
We know there are lots of questions regarding the temporary closing of our campuses. For some of those answers, updates and information, please visit tylerisd.org/covid19.
