Higgins Independent School District
March 30, 2020
Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Higgins ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Thursday, April 30th in an effort to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Our health officials report that cases are continuing to spread in the state, and confirmed cases in our county seems likely. Suspending operations for this length of time will allow us to determine, in coordination with local health officials, whether the virus is continuing to have community spread or whether it has been contained. We are coordinating with other school districts in the county and will use this time to make any decisions on whether there is a need to extend the suspension further. To provide a sense of possible impact in order to help you prepare: If there is a need to continue the suspension at that time, it would likely be for the rest of the school year.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. We want to reiterate a request to our broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness:
This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, will assess conditions throughout the week, and updates will be provided via our website, email, Facebook, etc.
Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in Higgins stay safe and healthy.
Kristy Waite, Superintendent
