Rio Grande City, Texas (KVEO)—The Rio Grande City (RGC) Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) announced it will re-open its campuses to all students who want to attend in-person instruction.
In a release, RGC CISD says the extension granted by the Texas Agency of Education (TEA) in Oct. to re-open will expire on Nov. 10.
According to the district, Phase II will begin with all RGC CISD teachers and staff reporting on-site on Friday.
Friday will be a workday for all teachers, meaning there will be no classes scheduled for the day.
Campuses will open to students that wish to attend in-person instruction on Monday, Nov. 16. The students will follow a regular instructional schedule while on-site.
“We will follow all health and safety protocols to ensure all students and staff are safe” reads a statement from the district.
KVEO reached out to RGCCISD hoping to ask them if they had been in contact with the county about the decision to reopen, but superintendent Vilma Garza did not wish to speak on camera.
Starr county judge Eloy Vera, who issued the emergency shelter-in-place order on November 7th, was unavailable to speak as well.
KVEO tried to ask questions about how it’s possible to return to school if the county is under a stay-at-home order, but was unsuccessful.
