July 16, 2020 Email: Back to School Plan

Posted by Tim Savoy on 7/16/2020

Dear Hays CISD Family,

Tonight, Superintendent Dr. Eric Wright presented to the school board the district’s 2020-2021 back to school COVID safety plan. The plan is now online at: www.hayscisd.net/theplan. (En Español: www.hayscisd.net/theplanespanol).

The plan has a lot of information, but the headline is that the district will shift the school calendar so that the first day of school is now September 8, 2020, the Tuesday after Labor Day. Then, for the next three weeks, Hays CISD instruction will be virtual/online. The new calendar is online at: https://www.hayscisd.net/calendar.

Thank you for your patience as we have prepared this plan. It involved many people representing every campus and department. And, as it is with everything COVID-related, the plan is subject to change as we learn more information and as this pandemic unfolds. We will keep you informed.

Tim Savoy
Hays CISD Chief Communication Officer
