Salazar-Zamora said she highly encourages all families and employees to fill out the online survey to help district officials to make informed decisions amid the coronavirus outbreak. Survey links can be found on the district's website.
The district announced March 12 no classes would be held March 16-20—extending spring break by a week—out of an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of the virus. While classes are suspended, all students are eligible to pickup a week's worth of meals on March 17-18, the district announced March 13.
The March 14 letter states meals may also be available for pickup March 23-24 should the school closure continue.
"As a strong and dedicated community, we will get through this," Salazar-Zamora said in the letter. "It will ultimately take all of us being proactive to ensure a healthy environment."
Additional COVID-19 announcements made by the district March 14 include:
- The district has cleaned and disinfected every campus and office building during spring break; used a fogging machine and disinfecting solution to mist surfaces in classrooms, office spaces, buses and other locations; and manually cleaned and disinfected every bus.
- Although TISD schools are closed through March 20, no remote learning will take place. However, principals and teachers are asked to be prepared for future remote learning needs.
- No information is yet available in regards to whether the district will need to make up canceled classes.
