Corsicana ISD Closed Jan. 18-19 Due to Rise in COVID-19 Cases

From Staff Reports

Today, parents of Corsicana Independent School District students will receive messaging about CISD schools and buildings being closing Tuesday, Jan. 18 and Wednesday, Jan. 19 due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in the county.

The letter sent out to parents reads as follows:

Dear Corsicana ISD Students, Parents and Staff Members,

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and the impact this is having on daily operations, all Corsicana ISD schools and buildings will be closed Tuesday, Jan. 18 and Wednesday, Jan. 19. Students and staff are scheduled to return to campuses on Thursday, Jan. 20.

Our goal is to give our staff and students extra time to get healthy and return to the teaching and learning environment. Corsicana ISD will use this time to deep clean our campuses and facilities.

Today’s decision was not taken lightly. As always, the health and safety of our students is our top priority. As we continue monitoring daily COVID-19 numbers in our district, we strongly believe that using the two additional days to deep clean and allow students and staff to get healthy is the best option.

We strongly encourage parents to stay informed of district information by signing up to receive our notifications. Please verify that your current and correct contact information is in your Parent Portal account. You can also sign up for CISD text alerts by texting the letter “Y” or the word “Yes” to the number 67587. Details will be communicated through our SchoolMessenger communication platform, our @CISDTigers social media pages and our https://link.edgepilot.com/s/5e9c426d/dQMnVcixgkiWkwt4UBG0fg?u=http://www.cisd.org/ website.

Debido al creciente número de casos de COVID-19 y el impacto que esto está teniendo en las operaciones diarias, todas las escuelas y edificios de Corsicana ISD estarán cerrados el martes 18 y miércoles 19 de enero. Los estudiantes y el personal regresaran a los campus el jueves 20 de enero.

Nuestro objetivo es dar más tiempo a miembros del personal y estudiantes para que se recuperen de salud y volver al entorno de enseñanza y aprendizaje. Corsicana ISD usará este tiempo para limpiar profundamente nuestros campus e instalaciones.

La decisión de hoy no se tomó a la ligera. Como siempre, la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes es nuestra principal prioridad. A medida que continuamos monitoreando los números diarios de COVID-19 en nuestro distrito, creemos firmemente que usar los dos días adicionales para limpiar profundamente y permitir que los estudiantes y el personal se mantengan saludables es la mejor opción.

Recomendamos a los padres que se mantengan informados sobre la información del distrito registrándose para recibir nuestras notificaciones. Verifique que su información de contacto este actual y correcta en su cuenta de Parent Portal para padres. También puede suscribirse a las alertas de texto de CISD enviando un mensaje de texto con la letra “Y” o la palabra “Sí” al número 67587. Los detalles se comunicarán a través de nuestra plataforma de comunicación SchoolMessenger, nuestras páginas de redes sociales @CISDTigers y nuestro https://link.edgepilot.com/s/5e9c426d/dQMnVcixgkiWkwt4UBG0fg?u=http://www.cisd.org/ sitio web.
