APART WE STAND TOGETHER

 

Parents of Bridgeport Independent School District,

Though we are apart right now for our health and safety, we at Bridgeport ISD continue to support each other as a community, and right now we must work together to fight COVID-19.  In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, BISD will be reaching out to you via email, phone, text message, and social media over the next two weeks to share vitally important guidance.

This guidance is based on what scientists know about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and it is our hope that you will continue doing all you can to follow these practices and share them with your friends and family.

Thank you for what you are doing to educate your children at home and all the efforts you’re making to keep your family healthy and safe. We know this is a difficult time. If we stand apart as a community during this stretch and continue following the public health practices we will be sharing over the coming days, we will be back together soon.

Stay well!

Brandon Peavey
Superintendent Bridgeport ISD

Letter from Mr. Peavey concerning updates for school.
 

UPDATE 3/13/20
 
Bridgeport ISD is committed to keeping families up to date with information on the COVID-19 virus as we receive guidance from the CDC and local/state health agencies.
 
As many of you may have seen on the news, surrounding school districts in Tarrant, Denton, and Cooke Counties have made the decisions to extend spring break another week.
 
While there are currently no reported cases in Wise County, we will continue to work in partnership with local and state health agencies to gather the most up to date information.
 
Protecting Students & Staff:
During Spring Break, we will be deep cleaning and disinfecting all of our buildings and facilities using electrostatic sprayers.
 
Travel Plans:
As we head into Spring Break, we want to update families on the district's contingency plan should we not return following the break.  In that case, we will remain committed to continued instruction and will begin at-home learning while students are away from the classroom.
If you will be traveling abroad or traveling on a cruise ship over Spring Break, we ask that employees (including, but not limited to, substitutes and contracted employees) and families self-report that information to your campus administrator as our objective is to keep everyone in our Bridgeport ISD family healthy and safe.  You can review the restricted areas by visiting the following CDC link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/
 
After Spring Break:
At this point, we have not made any decisions about extending Spring Break.  We know this decision can change quickly, so we wanted to give you time to plan ahead in the event that additional school closings become necessary or mandated by the state.  We are encouraging all of our families to be ready in the event school closures are put in place.
