Up to the Minute SAISD

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

 March 26, 2020

Virtual Home-Based Learning Through

April 10th

 San Angelo ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April 10 in an effort to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

SAISD Superintendent Dr. Carl Dethloff has been meeting with city officials and elected leaders to discuss what is best for the health and safety of the community of San Angelo. Suspending operations for this length of time will allow us to determine, in coordination with local health officials, whether the virus is spreading within our community or if it has been contained. We have received 776 responses to our Travel Reporting form from staff and families, many of whom have traveled to areas of high-exposure, counties with confirmed cases present, or are concerned they have been in contact with someone who has been exposed. With all this in mind, San Angelo ISD wants to assist our community in following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness, including the need to implement social distancing protocol. 

In preparation for children and faculty to be away from campuses, the team at San Angelo ISD has created a robust virtual learning platform to help support our students and staff. We are excited to launch this virtual learning platform. Parents will receive more information from their child’s campus no later than the end of this week.

This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, will assess conditions throughout the coming weeks and will provide periodic updates via our website, SwiftK12, and social media platforms. If there is a need to extend the closure beyond April 10, we will notify families no later than Monday, April 6.

Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in San Angelo ISD stay safe and healthy.

Resources for Remote Learning

We have compiled a list of remote learning resources for students and parents. Included are how-to articles and videos, getting started guides, helpful websites and blogs, and more.

SchoolCenter Picture~STAAR TESTING~

Governor Greg Abbott announced that he has waived the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) testing requirements for the 2019-2020 school year. 

With schools across the state closing due to the ongoing concerns of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Texas Education Agency (TEA) stated that “it has become apparent that schools will be unable to administer the STAAR as they would normally. We are thankful for Governor Abbott’s willingness to waive the STAAR testing requirement, as it allows schools the maximum flexibility to remain focused on public health while also investing in the capacity to support student learning remotely. 

Governor Abbott is working closely with TEA to ensure that schools continue to deliver instruction to students while students are absent or while schools are closed due to COVID-19. This includes tailoring instruction for students with special needs so that they have access to the same education as other students in the district. Governor Abbott will continue to work with the TEA on developing additional methods to ensure that students are learning and ready to succeed at the next grade-level.

“During this unprecedented public health challenge, we at TEA are doing all we can to support our schools and local communities,” said TEA in a statement released today. “We will continue to support [educators] in every way we can, including ensuring the availability of free tools to diagnose student learning.”

The move to waive testing requirements reflects the Governor’s emphasis on public health over all other priorities at this time. "Your health and safety are top priorities, and the state of Texas will give school districts flexibility to protect and ensure the health of students, faculty, and their families," said Governor Abbott. "We will empower schools to make the best decisions to protect their communities from COVID-19."

As a District, we are committed to helping our families during this time of closure.  San Angelo ISD’s Child Nutrition department will prepare and distribute meals for children ages 18 years or younger at five sites beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020 These “grab-and-go” curbside meals can be picked up at the following locations and times.

Belaire Elementary - 700 Stephens
Bradford Elementary - 2302 Bradford Street
Crockett Elementary - 2104 Johnson
Goliad Elementary - 120 East 39th Street
Lee Middle School - 2500 Sherwood Way

Please know that children must be present to receive a meal.  Due to federal regulations, we are unable to provide meals for adults at this time.  Meals may be picked up at any of the San Angelo ISD schools listed above. Your child does not need to attend one of the listed sites to receive the free meal. Each “grab-and-go” meal will come at no charge, regardless of meal eligibility status. 

Parents may drive through the car loop (front of each campus listed) to pick up meals for their children and are advised to stay in their cars.  Families that walk to the campus will also be served a “grab-and-go” meal. There will be no areas available to consume food onsite.
