Weekly Update - April 19, 2020

Posted by Melaynee Broadstreet on 4/19/2020

Dear Falcon Families,

First and foremost, we hope each of you and your families are healthy and adapting as we navigate these unprecedented times.

On Friday, following the announcement of the governor of the closure of all Texas schools, we notified you that we will remain closed for the remainder of the school year.  While our buildings may be closed, our teachers and staff are working harder than ever to provide LDISD@home learning for our students.

We know this is not the way any of us envisioned ending the school year.  You have relationships with your teachers and administrators and that bond is not broken by distance. If you need help, reach out and email them but remember they are also juggling the same demands you are with your families. 

Our leadership team completely understands that most of you did not go to school to become a teacher. You are not expected to become one now. But we do want to remind you of the resources we have for you as you work with your children to continue their learning and stay connected to the teachers, campus staff, and classmates who miss seeing them dearly.

Resources:

  • LDISD@home Learning - The district will continue required instruction through the current learning platform for our students through our official last day of school Friday, May 22, 2020. This will ensure that all of our students have the opportunity to meet the state-mandated attendance and promotional requirements.

    We know that these experiences cannot replicate those of the day-to-day classroom, yet we are confident that the LDISD@home learning program will keep students engaged and allow them to finish the school year with meaningful learning.

  • FAQ pages - We are continually updating and adding information as questions come in regarding the closure and the learning platform. COVID-19 Closure FAQ / LDISD@home FAQ

    Important additions and updates this week include:
  • Family Resources - the attached pdf is posted on our COVID-19 website, but we wanted you to have it readily available at this uncertain time. It contains an extensive list of helpful resources for LDISD families including information and links regarding job loss, food assistance, living, health, emergency medical & rental assistance, stress and coping tips and more . . .

Much has been asked of our Falcon family over the past several weeks. We have all been challenged, and we have all risen to the occasion. Please continue to do your best to manage these unprecedented circumstances, and, in return, we promise our support in every way possible.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Falcon Family.
