Magnolia ISD families have until Aug. 24 at noon to select their preferred learning option for their students this fall via an online form, according to the district's website. Students who do not select a preferred earning option by the deadline will be automatically placed in on-campus learning once face-to-face instruction begins, which is expected to occur Sept. 8. Campus principals have shared information with families as to how to fill out the form, the district said in a Facebook post Aug. 18.

MISD students started the school year virtually Aug. 12, but the district expects to begin face-to-face instruction after Labor Day while also continuing to offer virtual learning to those families who select it, pending guidance from local health authorities, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.



According to MISD’s 2020-21 learning options, masks are recommended for elementary students enrolled in on-campus learning and are required for intermediate, junior high and high school students. All students are subject to the same attendance policies for classes and may participate in extracurricular activities.

In the event of a COVID-19-related classroom or campus closure, the district will continue instruction through online asynchronous and synchronous learning, according to a flowchart from the district.
