June 18 Email: Hays CISD COVID-19 Update & Graduation Information

Posted by Tim Savoy on 6/18/2020

Dear Hays CISD Family,

I hope your summer is treating you well. Here is a quick update on a couple of items:

Back to School Plans

You’ll likely see in the news today that the state has announced that students in Texas will return to the classroom this fall. Today’s announcement doesn’t change any of our contingency planning. We are preparing for some type of in-person instruction, but what that looks like will depend on a number of factors. We anticipate we will have more answers on what will be required of us from the Texas Education Agency as early as next week. And, of course, we will keep you posted.

We know the student start date of our published school calendar, August 20, 2020, will not change. Our hope is that we will still be funded to provide some type of at-home learning opportunities to either help us with social distancing or allow an option for parents who do not wish to send their children to school right away.

Registration and Enrollment

Registration and enrollment pages are online for 2020-2021 school year at: https://www.hayscisd.net/registration. Please register your students regardless of whether you plan to physically send your children to school in August or continue at-home instruction. This will keep you in our student information system, allow us to assign teachers and schedules to your child, and help us plan for the fall.  

We still intend to send you a quick planning survey later this month or in early July regarding what you would like to see the Hays CISD fall semester look like given the COVID-19 pandemic. Look for that in a future email.

Graduation

It’s here! Next week, we will proudly honor the Hays CISD Class of 2020 graduates. We have created a special web page honoring our students that includes links to the live-streams so that you may watch the ceremonies online. The page also has important information for ticket-holders who will be in attendance at the ceremonies.
