Dear Caddo Mills ISD Community,
Out of an abundance of caution to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and to safeguard the well-being of our students, staff and community, CMISD is suspending normal operations until Monday, April 6, 2020. During this time period, all CMISD facilities will be closed for all functions, including UIL events and facility rentals.
Our administrators continue to work with the CMISD Board of Trustees, health departments, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Center for Disease Control, and the Texas Education Agency to monitor this ever changing situation.
Last night in an emergency called meeting, the CMISD Board of Trustees took steps to ensure our students and staff are taken care of at this time. These steps include ensuring all of our employees are paid during the time of suspended operations, and that students are provided meals and other services. Please check our website and Facebook page for more details.
CMISD has wonderful teachers, staff and administrators. They have been working tirelessly to ensure our students are taken care of and will continue learning. We will be rolling out our at home learning plan over the next few days. Our teachers began reaching out to parents and students yesterday and are compiling responses in order to create an effective and feasible learning plan. We will have a high tech and a low tech option available for all families.
We acknowledge that a school closure creates a hardship on our parents and staff because of work, childcare and other considerations. However, we hope you understand that our efforts in coming to this decision were made with the best interests of everyone involved. We are committed to taking care of our most vulnerable populations.
We hope to look back on this situation in the months to come and think that we overreacted. If we do, we will be very grateful that we erred on the side of caution. Once again, please see our website for more information and reach out to us with questions at questions@CMISD.org and we will respond promptly. Have a great day and stay safe.
