MISSION, Texas — The Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) is planning to reopen for the 2020-2021 school year after the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to close in-person activity.
The first day of school for students is set for Monday, August 17.
According to a release, the reopening will allow for various possibilities and adjustments as needed, based upon the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic in the area.
Additionally, Chromebooks will be provided to all students in grades 3-12 to allow for flexible instructional options to address possible health concerns. Appropriate devices will be provided to students in younger grades as well.
“At this time we wish that we could state that we will start the school year as normal as possible with in-person classroom instruction,” said Dr. Carol G. Perez, superintendent. “However, we know there will need to be some differences in terms of how things operate, and allowances made in continuing efforts to provide a safe and healthy school environment designed to slow the community spread of COVID-19. The final details will be worked out based upon guidance that we expect to receive from the Texas Education Agency and health officials.”
