Lytle ISD Official Communications
April 1, 2020: Lytle ISD to Follow Governor’s School Closure Order and Remain “Closed, Instructing” through Friday, May 1, 2020
Dear Lytle ISD Families,
After Governor Greg Abbott’s press conference Tuesday, March 31, 2020, Lytle ISD is suspending normal district operations through Friday, May 1, 2020 to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Our school facilities remain closed to students and visitors, but Lytle ISD employees are still working hard to support our Lytle ISD families for the duration:
Child Nutrition and Transportation Departments are providing free student meals in 7 convenient locations.
Remote instruction which began March 23, will continue through digital channels such as Blackboard Classroom, Google Classroom, and published SMORES. However, in order to provide high quality instruction in a safe manner, the distribution of paper packets will end on Friday, April 3. (The CDC reports that the Novel Coronavirus is stable on paper for 4-5 days.)
The Technology Department has provided hotspot wifi devices to help families who don’t have internet access at home. Contact your child’s teacher if technology access is preventing your student from accessing digital lessons.
For students who are currently not engaged or connected with their teachers in online learning, home visits will happen this week to see how we can better support students and families.
These efforts and others will continue for the duration. You may reach out to campus leaders and staff at any time through email - all Lytle ISD emails are formatted in this way: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are actively monitoring this quickly changing situation and updates will be posted on www.lytleisd.org, through email, text messaging and social media.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of our Lytle ISD community stay safe and healthy. I pray that we’ll all be together again very soon. Stay well, and God bless you and your families.
Michelle Carroll Smith
Lytle ISD Superintendent of Schools
