Paris ISD released its Safety Protocol and Guidelines for the upcoming school year highlighting the school is actively monitoring COVID-19 conditions.
Superintendent Paul Jones released the following statement:
As we begin the 2021-22 school year, teachers and administrators are actively monitoring the COVID-19 conditions in our community. I am aware of and appreciate the fact that you are ready to visit the campuses where your children attend.
I agree strongly with you that parents need to be partners in the education of their children.
Classroom visits, lunch, and in-person meetings with teachers and principals are just a few examples of how parents can take an active role in their child’s school journey.
Our current plan is to allow you to do these things. You will need to check with your child’s principal to get specific information on the parameters of visiting the campus.
Please also be aware that if local conditions worsen, or if hgealth authorities mandate, we will adjust our policy regarding campus visits.
This could possibly mean that we would no longer allow visitors until conditions improve.
It is my hope and prayer that 2021-22 is more “normal” than last year was, and PISD is committed to making this happen for our students and their families.
Please understand, however, that the health and safety of students and their teachers is our top priority.
Thank you for your flexibility and support, and thank you for giving PISD the honor of working with your child.
