*AT-HOME SCHOOL INSTRUCTION SUPPORTS BEGIN MARCH 30th

This is your information station for updates on the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation for Stockdale ISD. 

 

Superintendent's Letter 3-24-20

Parents and Guardians, 

This is Daniel Fuller, Superintendent of Stockdale ISD. As an update to COVID-19, our district has extended our closure to April 21st in alignment with the executive order extending the declaration of public health emergency by the Wilson County Commissioners Court. This being said, Stockdale ISD will remain closed to students until further notice. I continue to have daily correspondence with local officials, the commissioner of education, and will ensure recommendation from CDC are implemented as we navigate this public health emergency. 

Our administrators, teachers, and staff have been working hard to prepare at-home instruction to begin this coming Monday, March 30th via Google online platforms or student packets based upon responses given earlier this week. 

If you chose to check out a chrome book and/or receive packets for at-home instruction, we will begin distributing these with the meals at the elementary parent pick-up line beginning Monday, March 30th between 9:30 am - 1:00 pm. If you already identified that you would like them delivered, please prepare to receive them starting Monday as well. 

I am excited to report that our cafeteria served 908 meals today as we continue to provide a combined breakfast and lunch to anyone 18 years old and younger. If you are interested, please reach out to us at covid19@stockdaleisd.org to request to be added to our counts. Please keep in mind if you live within the boundaries of Main Street, Hwy 123, and Hwy 87, you must pick up your meals at the elementary parent pick up line between 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. 

Our Faculty and Staff has been eager to serve the students of Stockdale in many capacities and they are greatly missed during this time of closure. 

Have a great evening, 

Daniel Fuller, Superintendent 

 


Superintendent's Letter 3-20-20

Parents and Guardians, 

This is Daniel Fuller, Superintendent of Stockdale ISD. Yesterday, Govenor Greg Abbott issued a disaster proclamation order number 4 in accordance with the guidelines from the President and the CDC that schools shall temporarily close, this shall remain in effect until 11:59 am on April 3rd. This being said, Stockdale ISD will remain closed to students until further notice. I continue to have daily correspondence with local officials, the commissioner of education, and recommendation from CDC. 

Our leadership team here in Stockdale has been meeting and will continue to meet in efforts to provide at-home instructional support as soon as possible. Once we begin offering at-home instructional supports, I encourage you to continue to contact via email with teachers and staff at your respective campuses. 

Per Department of Agriculture guidance, some flexibility has been given regarding how meals can be delivered during this situation. In efforts to anticipate for prolonged delivery of meals, we will be going to a single delivery cycle that will provide both breakfast and lunch at the same time. Deliveries will run between 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. We have had tremendous results on our meal deliveries thus far communicating via covid19@stockdaleisd.org and will continue to use this platform to request for meals. If you have not been receiving them, please include your name, address and number of individuals that are 18 years old or younger. 

Please know that I am committed to supporting our community, parents and students to the fullest extent possible within my authority. I ask you all for continued patience as this situation is and will continue to be unprecedented. 

I thank you all for doing your part to combat the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Our district will continue to send out information via our website, local news outlets, and parent call-outs to keep you informed of any further changes. 

Educationally Yours, 

Daniel Fuller, Superintendent

 


Superintendent's Letter 3-17-20

Parents and Guardians, 

As the Superintendent of Stockdale ISD, I would like to take this opportunity to update you regarding our plans for the upcoming week. Many of our immediate decisions are being driven by the spread of COVID-19 and how it has impacted our immediate geographical area and community. At this time there is no confirmed cases in Wilson County or the Stockdale area. 

Please note our extended Spring Break for students will end on March 20. Next week, March 23rd - 27th students will remain at home while all faculty and staff will report to work to prepare our long-term plans to serve students in the wake of COVID-19. Students will return to school as normal on March 30th provided there are no confirmed cases in our area. Please rest assured we are making arrangements to more frequently disinfect high touch area while students are in session. 

The state has given us latitude regarding attendance. The 90% Compulsory Attendance requirement is being waived at this time. We are making every effort to ensure our attendance is concerns of COVID-19 that they email us at covid19@stockdaleisd.org. This will play a vital role for our district in documenting absences. 

I thank you all for doing your part to combat the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Our district will continue to send out information via our website, local news outlets, and parent call-outs to keep you informed of this frequently changing situation. 

Educationally Yours, 

Daniel Fuller, Superintendent

 


Superintendent's Letter 3-15-20

Parents and Guardians,

This past week has been packed full of new information as this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic unfolds and is being countered by the world, our nation, our state, and our communities in efforts to keep the safety and health of the greater community the priority. Sources that are being considered include, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, Texas Education Agency, and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) along with local health officials.

The University Scholastic League (UIL) has issued the following statement as of this afternoon: "Due to statewide concerns with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), no athletic contests will be allowed March 16th - 29th. At this time, all athletic events will resume on March 30th.

This was a difficult decision to make as we know changing plans abruptly can be challenging. Provided the situation coming off of Spring Break knowing that many families have traveled and in an effort to keep health and safety the priority, Stockdale lSD will be extending Spring Break through next week (March 20) as a preventative measure. This measure includes extra-curricular practices being canceled through the extension of Spring Break. All district facilities will remain closed to community use during this closure due to the nature of the pandemic.

Our district is also committed to providing food services as provided by the Department of Agriculture under the National School Lunch Program. We will be serving breakfast from 7:30am - 8:30am and lunch from 11:30am- 1:00pm at our Elementary Cafeteria as a grab and go through the parent pick-up line.

Most importantly, we ask if your child or children are showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 that you seek appropriate medical attention and self-report via telephone to our campuses/district so that we can make informed decisions as we navigate this pandemic together.

Based upon the CDC the following are facts surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19):
