MISD's closure includes canceling all school activities and extracurricular activities through May 1; however, the district plans to work to reschedule as many events as possible from April, including prom, according to the letter.
The statements come after Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order on the state's response to the coronavirus March 31, which is effective through April 30 and calls for school closures to remain until May 4, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
Online learning will continue at both districts, and TISD will re-evaluate the situation in the future, according to the letter.
"Our number one priority will continue to be health and safety, and we will continue to work closely with public health officials to make the best decisions for kids, families and our school communities," MISD Superintendent Todd Stephens said in the letter.
MISD graduations have been rescheduled to May 30 at the Cynthia Mitchell Woods Pavilion, while TISD has postponed ceremonies indefinitely, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
