Houston, Texas – The Fort Bend School District announced that the 2020-21 classes will be virtual, a measure that seeks to avoid contagion of students and workers by the coronavirus.
During this school year, there will be no in-person extracurricular activities during this distance learning period.
Katy ISD will have a “smart reset”.
The Katy School District announced its plan for a return from classes beginning August 19, which it has called “smart reset.”
A statement from the school district indicated that students may have their classes in person or virtual. “Our priority is to ensure that we have the mechanisms and protocols to protect the health of all students and staff when they return to school.” Superintendent Ken Gregorski said.
In the Web page, Smart Restart all the procedures that the authorities want to apply for the start of the new school year are detailed. Starting on July 20, parents or guardians will be able to choose whether the student attends school or does it virtually by filling out a form on the web portal.
Katy ISD asks parents to email their questions or concerns ReturnsntoSchool@katyisd.org While district personnel should do so at this email: ReturnsntoWork@katyisd.org. They assure that the information about the start of classes will be updated as the date approaches.
“We will continue to keep our parents and staff up-to-date with the latest information and guidance related to the school district from state and local health officials,” Gregorski added.
“The Houston School District is not ready”
This Monday, HISD workers said they are not ready to restart work in classrooms due to the increase in cases of coronavirus in Harris County and the city of Houston.
Despite the fact that the authorities want the reopening of the schools, specialists such as Dr. Pete Hotez, indicate that the contagion by coronavirus is massive and the cases continue unabated.
