Texas Governor Greg Abbott earlier today announced all Texas school buildings will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. I am confident our state is doing the right thing by extending school closures through the end of the year. The most important thing is the health and safety of our communities.
Our facilities may be closed but learning will continue for the rest of the school year with our At-Home learning resources.
While this information gives us certainty about what is to come for school, I am sure it creates many other emotions for our students, families, staff and community members. I am sad we won’t get to experience many of our typical spring activities, and we know we will have to adjust our plans for things like graduation, prom and other senior activities.
Even as we face the growing list of ways we must change or adapt, the best of LISD will continue. LISD will continue caring, LISD will continue serving, and LISD will continue as the cornerstone of the communities we serve. We are in this together, and that will not change!
