Dear CISD Parents,

In response to the recent escalating developments concerning COVID-19 in our area, Canadian ISD has decided to close schools from March 23, 2020 through April 3, 2020.  Before returning to normal school operations, we will assess the COVID-19 situation and decide whether to extend the closure. 

Our primary concern is the health and well-being of our students and community.  While COVID-19 seems to be less of a serious health threat for school-age children, we do realize the threat of contagious students passing the virus to elderly family members or to parents who might work with the elderly.  While there are still no confirmed cases in Hemphill County or the Texas panhandle, there are now at least 2 confirmed cases in Lubbock and multiple confirmed cases in Oklahoma City, both areas that many of our families visited over Spring Break.

Please know that we will do the following to take care of our students:

  • Support learning at home with online lessons and resources 
  • Provide meals to students who depend on our cafeterias for daily meals
  • Implement reasonable plans to provide services to our students with special needs

CISD instructional staff will meet Monday through Wednesday (3/23-25) to develop a cohesive plan for delivery of lessons and communication with students and parents.

To help us plan, please take a few minutes to click on the link below and complete a brief survey related to your family’s internet access and food needs.

Estimados padres de CISD,

En respuesta a la reciente escalada de los acontecimientos relativos a COVID-19 en nuestra área, Canadian ISD ha decidido cerrar escuelas desde el 23 de marzo de 2020 hasta el 3 de abril de 2020.  Antes de regresar a las operaciones escolares normales, evaluaremos la situación de COVID-19 y decidiremos si prorrogamos el cierre. 

Nuestra principal preocupación es la salud y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes y la comunidad.  Aun que COVID-19 no parece ser una grave amenaza para la salud de los niños de edad escolar, nos damos cuenta de la amenaza de que los estudiantes contagiados transmitan el virus a familiares ancianos o a padres que podrían trabajar con ancianos.  Aun todavía no hay casos confirmados en el condado de Hemphill o el panhandle de Texas, ahora hay al menos 2 casos confirmados en Lubbock y múltiples casos confirmados en Oklahoma City, ciudades que pudieron ser visitadas por nuestras familias durante las vacaciones de primavera.

Por favor sepa que haremos lo siguiente para cuidar de nuestros estudiantes:

  • Apoyar el aprendizaje en casa con lecciones y recursos en línea
  • Proporcionar comidas a los estudiantes que dependen de nuestras cafeterías para las comidas diarias
  • Implementar planes razonables para proporcionar servicios a nuestros estudiantes con necesidades especiales

El personal de instrucción del CISD se reunirá de lunes a miércoles (3/23-25) para desarrollar un plan cohesivo para la impartición de lecciones y comunicación con los estudiantes y los padres.

Para ayudarnos a planificar, por favor tome unos minutos para hacer clic en el siguiente enlace y completar una breve encuesta relacionada con el acceso a Internet de su familia y las necesidades de alimentos.
