Blackcat Family, Following ongoing guidance from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to prioritize in-person instruction, we returned to school today following a temporary closure to try to break the covid cycle we were experiencing. Unfortunately, the number of staff and students who are dealing with covid continued to heavily impact attendance today. In consultation with our local office of Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), the numbers we saw today were unexpected and alarming following this closure. The most current updates posted on the CDC website state that “the science is evolving, particularly for the Omicron variant...” Considering the CDC’s framework concerning the incubation period, as well as isolation/quarantine timeframes for Omicron, all factors indicate that a 7-day closure is necessary now, given our exceptionally high number of cases. Taking all this information into account, Mexia ISD will close tomorrow, Wednesday, January 19, 2022 thru next Tuesday, January 25, 2022. This includes all extracurricular and athletic activities. We plan to resume all classes and activities on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. Tomorrow MISD staff will conduct a comprehensive cleaning and disinfecting of all campuses and buses. *** Student Meals will be made available each weekday during this closure for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Pickup between 10AM-1PM at Sims Intermediate main entrance via curbside. Meals may be picked up for multiple MISD enrolled students. Students do not need to be present for pick-up of meals. ***MISD nurses will be available to administer covid tests for MISD students and staff during the district closure weekdays 10AM-2PM at RQ Sims main entrance. Please remain in your vehicle, the nurse will come outside test you.
Blackcats, We have been monitoring our covid situation closely and unfortunately the number of positive cases continue to rise and attendance is declining. In an effort to break the cycle of spreading the virus, Mexia ISD will close this Thursday and Friday, January 13-14, 2022. This includes all extracurricular and athletic activities. Monday is a scheduled holiday for staff and students. We will resume all classes and activities on Tuesday, January 18th. Buses will run at regular time this afternoon. Tomorrow MISD staff will conduct a comprehensive cleaning and disinfecting of all campuses and buses. Student meals will be made available Thursday and Friday for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Pickup is from 10AM-1PM at Sims Intermediate & JH campuses main entrances via curbside. Meals may be picked up for multiple MISD enrolled students.
