UPDATE :: 3/27/20
New update from Mr. Peavey
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared a public health disaster due to COVID-19.
All public schools will be CLOSED UNTIL APRIL 3. At that time, the state will review reopening at that time depending on the state of the disease.
Letter from Mr. Peavey concerning updates for school.
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.
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.
