Coronavirus Disease 2019 Updates

Dear Goose Creek CISD Families,

 

As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, I want you to know how much I appreciate each of you. Our district could not ask for a more dedicated, caring community, and I am proud of the way you handled the challenges we faced last spring as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, embracing technology with online instruction and adjusting to the stresses that have been brought on by the pandemic. While we had hoped to return to some sense of normalcy by the beginning of this school year, we have chosen to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Texas Education Agency and executive orders from our state and local authorities. As you know, we will begin the school year with virtual instruction for a three week period due to the rise of COVID-19 cases and begin our hybrid face-to-face instruction on September 28th. This publication serves as a guide to our staff, students, and families as we return to face-to-face instruction. Because this is a fluid event, we will continue to provide updates to this plan as necessary. As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority, and it is our goal to provide the safest learning environment possible. We have worked hard to provide the safest and most comprehensive plan for our students and staff. Working with our Board of Trustees, we will strive to make informed decisions in the best interest of our students and staff. Again, thank you for everything you do, and I pray that we all stay safe have a smooth start to the school year.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Randal O'Brien

Superintendent of Schools
