Letter from the Superintendent

Tuesday, March 31st, 2020


Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Slaton ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, May 1st in an effort to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.  Our health officials report that cases are continuing to spread in the state, and an increase in confirmed cases in our county seems likely.  Suspending operations for this length of time will allow us to determine, in coordination with local health officials, whether the virus is continuing to have community spread or whether it has been contained.  We are coordinating with other school districts in the county and area and will use the week of April 27th to make any decisions on whether there is a need to extend the suspension further.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol.  We want to reiterate a request to our broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness:

  • Don’t shake hands
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded places and maintaining 6 ft of distance between people (at least two arm’s length)
  • If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups
  • For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms. Students who have traveled should plan to stay home for two weeks after arriving home. Please contact your campus to let them know, and this will be considered an excused absence.
  • If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice.
  • Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold.
  • Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care

This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, assess conditions, and will provide the next update by April 29th via our school website and school Facebook page.

Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in Slaton ISD stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Gary Harrell, Interim Superintendent
Slaton ISD
