Strawn ISD is working closely with state, county, and local officials to monitor the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. As always, the district will take all necessary precautions to protect the health and welfare of all students and staff. Please continue to follow our Strawn ISD website and Facebook Page for the latest updates.
We have received many questions regarding Governor Abbott's announcement rescinding the mask mandate. Currently, Strawn ISD is changing nothing in relation to our COVID protocols, and our intent is to revisit the safety measures at the end of the school year. Read the entire letter from Superintendent Mr. Mitchell here.
Strawn ISD is pleased to announce that school meals will be available to all students, staff, and community members for free through the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year! Community members: If you would like to pick up to-go meals, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org the night before so our cafeteria staff can have those ready for you. Pick up each weekday is 7:45 AM for breakfast and 10:30 AM for lunch! We look forward to serving you!
Strawn ISD's Return to School Plan has been released. You may view it here. We hope that this answers many of your questions. Strawn ISD will support families in the decisions they feel are best for their children and we will support our employees in navigating the next steps in Strawn ISD's return to school. We sincerely appreciate the patience and grace you have extended us as we work through these unprecedented times.
With a few simple steps, you can support your child and family during COVID-19.
For mental health resources, please visit TEA.Texas.gov/MHR or call (833) 986-1919, and if there is anything we can do for your family, please let us know.
Please contact the school if we can assist your family in any way. More information and guidance will be made available on our Facebook Page and website.
Strawn ISD asks the 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 3 to 6 feet of distance between people (at lest an 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 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
