Winters ISD Back-To-School Plan

Winters ISD Back-To-School Plan

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.

Superintendent, Winters ISD

 

BACK TO SCHOOL SURVEY

Winters ISD Parents and Guardians,

Please find attached a very short survey for all parents/guardians of school-aged children to complete by July 29th.  The survey responses will be used to better help us serve your child(ren) for the 2020-2021 school year.  There are questions on the survey about your internet, your thoughts for the upcoming school year, and what you’d like to see from Winters ISD.  During this time of uncertainty, we want to make things as good as we can for our students (and parents).  We know that the spring was rough for many and we are diligently working to make everyone’s return to school great!  We are ready to see the kids and get the Blizzards back together!

Coronavirus - April 7 update

Our first day of Delivery Only went really, really well! We’ve had a few people ask if there’s anything they can do to help so this is all we are asking! Because we are delivering in excess of 400 meals per day please be ready to meet your delivery person @ the car, driveway, or door!

2.  If no one is home to accept meals for 2 days in a row you will need to call to enroll again. Due to health guidelines meals must be delivered in a timely manner.

3. If anyone in your house is sick, let them know where to leave your meals so they don’t come within 6ft of you!
 
4.  Please have your dogs put up, or let them know to honk so nobody gets bitten.

5.  If you have any questions about your meals being delivered email june.watson@wintersisd.org

Thank you!

 

Coronavirus - April 2 update

Parents of WISD,

Though we are apart right now for our health and safety, we at WISD continue to support each other as a community, and right now we must work together to fight COVID-19.  In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, DISTRICT will be reaching out to you via email, phone, text message, and social media over the next two weeks to share vitally important guidance. 

This guidance is based on what scientists know about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and it is our hope that you will do what you can to follow these practices and share them with your friends and family. 

Thank you for all you are doing to educate your children at home and all the efforts you’re making to keep your family healthy and safe. We know this is a difficult time. If we stand apart as a community during this stretch and continue following the public health practices we will be sharing over the coming days, we will be back together soon.

Stay well!

Padres de WISD:

Aunque en este momento estemos separados por razones de salud y seguridad, en WISD continuamos apoyándonos mutuamente como comunidad y, precisamente ahora, debemos trabajar en conjunto para combatir el COVID-19.  Con el fin de evitar la propagación del COVID-19, durante las próximas dos semanas, DISTRICT se comunicará con ustedes por correo electrónico, teléfono, mensaje de texto y redes sociales para compartir orientación de vital importancia. 

Esta orientación se basará en lo que los científicos saben acerca de cómo prevenir la propagación del COVID-19, y esperamos que hagan todo lo posible para cumplir con estas prácticas y compartirlas con sus amigos y familiares. 

Les agradecemos todo lo que están haciendo para educar a sus hijos en casa y sus esfuerzos para mantener a su familia segura y con buena salud. Sabemos que son tiempos difíciles. Si nos mantenemos separados como comunidad durante este período y continuamos cumpliendo con las prácticas de salud pública que compartiremos con ustedes durante los próximos días, pronto volveremos a estar juntos.

¡Cuídense!
