April 17, update



Chireno schools will remain closed through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year  in accordance with Governor Abbott’s executive order on April 17th. Students must continue to receive daily academic support from their teachers and schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. I will be looking at options for our graduation ceremony to honor and celebrate our graduating seniors.


We will continue to provide instruction through distance learning during this time. We will have packet pickup and dropoff on Monday April 20th. We also will be providing the grading guidelines for both elementary and secondary. Food services will resume providing the weekly meals on Monday for pickup.

Good Evening!
We hope our entire CISD Family and Community is well! Thank you for the many emails and messages of support as we put plans in place to support you during the school closure. Please continue to reach out and let us know how we may serve you.
Many of you have asked what you can do to help. Right now, the answer is simple-just check on each other. Call your neighbor and offer a word of encouragement. Remind each other it's okay to make your at home "classroom" rules as you go. Find what works best for your family. Please make every effort to follow the recommendations for limiting the spread of COVID-19.
If you can, say a prayer for your school leaders. We're trying to make decisions based on many unknown factors, with information that is rapidly evolving. Balancing short term needs, with the potential long-term impact is especially challenging. One thing is for sure, if our children are not healthy-physically and emotionally, nothing else really matters.

Sincerely,
Heather Hagle
