    Gov. Abbott Announces School Facility Closures For Remainder of 2019-2020

    On Friday, April 17, Gov. Abbott announced that Texas school facilities will remain closed for the remainder of the current school year, but learning will continue.

    We know this extended facility closure is not how any of us wanted to wrap up the 2019-2020 school year, and we truly miss all of our students and the families we serve. Virtual learning will continue through May 22, 2020.  We know you have many questions, and we continue to ask for your grace and patience as we work next week to finalize plans for how we can safely close out the 2019-2020 school year. More information will be shared soon.

    Cybersafety/Mobile Device Safety

    Cybercriminals are using concerns about COVID-19 as a new method of phishing attack. These malicious emails are being sent to businesses, public organizations, and private individuals.

     
    Below are links to educational flyers. One will show you how to identify and protect yourself against phishing attacks, the other has information more specific to mobile device safety. Please review these documents and remember that if you are ever unsure of the source of any form of communication, the safest option is to not respond.
