San Marcos CISD and Hays CISD extend the suspension of normal school operations until at least May 4, following Gov. Greg Abbott’s order that all schools in the state stay closed through that date.



Both school districts will continue their at-home learning programs which they started March 30—SMCISD has extended remote learning until May 4.



“The closure of school is not easy for any of us, and we want you to know we are working to continue our mission to offer remote educational opportunities for all our students,” read a statement issued by SMCISD.



The districts will also continue to provide free curbside meals for anyone age 18 or younger.



Instead of setting a possible return date that could continue to change, HCISD will give you a one-week notice prior to resuming normal operations. We now know that won’t happen for at least another month,” HCSID spokesperson Tim Savoy said in a March 31 statement.
