San Marcos CISD announced it will be canceling all extracurricular events, excluding University Interscholastic League athletic events, citing concerns over the coronavirus.
On March 12, Superintendent Michael Cardona released a statement announcing UIL athletic events would proceed with a limited attendance of only participants, their families and essential staff.
Though no cases of coronavirus have been confirmed at SMCISD, Cardona said the district is prepared to respond in the event of a confirmed case.
Hays CISD has also taken additional steps to help contain the spread of the coronavirus.
On March 13, HCISD announced the cancellation of all noninstructional activities and facility rentals of school facilities through the end of March.
Noninstructional activities include “all special events, UIL competitions, gatherings, after-school and in-school activities (such as PTA nights and grandparents day lunches), performances and presentations and meeting (except school board meetings),” according to a statement released by Tim Savoy, chief communication officer at HCISD.
HCISD has not extended spring break and plans on resuming instruction March 23, as scheduled. However, in a statement, Savoy said these plans are fluid and could change with the development of the virus.
The district has extended its students and noncritical staff travel to any travel outside of the district, according to the statement.
HCISD has not reported any confirmed cases of coronavirus at this time.
The district will continue to provide updates on any other precautionary actions through the district’s website.
