Local Students Attend Virtual STEM Camp at Rice University

Two students from Winters ISD, Connor Garcia and Ashlyn Richards, were among a select group from around the state to receive a scholarship from ExxonMobil to attend unique virtual workshops hosted by the Tapia Center for Excellence and Equity at Rice University this summer.

Students experienced a five-day online STEM Camp led by Rice professors and experienced facilitators that builds problem solving and communications skills. Each camper was challenged to design their own heatsink, simulating the process through which heat is transferred away from the processor in a computer to keep the device from overheating.

LETTER FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

July 22, 2020

As summer is rapidly winding down, many of you have concerns about the re-opening of our schools in mid-August. We are working on the back-to-school plan for Winters ISD that will provide the safest environment we can offer for all staff and students. I have been working with our administrative team to make sure we provide a safe environment for students, staff, and parents. To implement the plan, it is going to take cooperation and understanding from everyone because this is a fluid situation that can and probably will change.

Plans are being made for a remote learning option (synchronous and/or asynchronous) as well as in-person classes, in accordance with the guidance recently released by the Texas Education Agency. Parents can choose the option they determine to be best for their child. Both options will have new guidelines, expectations for daily attendance, and will operate with the same types of work and grading system (numeric grade scale) for the students. The best option is the high-quality instruction provided by our outstanding teachers while our students are in class, but these challenging times may require us to do things a little differently.

Our plans regarding a safe school environment will follow the requirements from the Centers for Diseases Control (CDC), State Health Department (DSHS), the Texas Education Agency (TEA), University Interscholastic League (UIL), and other local agencies. We are ordering safety supplies and materials that we need to keep everyone safe. Our goal is to make the buses, our cafeteria, classrooms, hallways, and entrances as safe as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time that we are all having to face.

Please be watching our website and Winters ISD Facebook page for more information and details about our back-to-school plan on July 29, 2020.

Sean Leamon
Superintendent, Winters ISD
