Superintendent Update - March 24, 2020
|March 24, 2020||En Español|
Dear Jubilee Families,
We continue to actively monitor developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) in conjunction with local and state public health officials, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Per Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Declaration of Disaster, regions have issued a shelter-in-place order. The shelter-in-place order only allows families to leave their residence for the purpose of obtaining the essentials. School Operations are essential and will continue.
Based on the new mandate, the following adjustments will go into effect:
Classes on campus will tentatively resume Monday, April 27, 2020. Distance Learning is up and running in all of our regions. Remember participation in distance and online learning where offered is required for all students. If you have students who participate in special programs and have not heard from your teachers, please reach out to the campus administrators via email.
Distribution of instructional packets and meal services will continue as scheduled. Our Curriculum team and teachers are working hard to ensure you have what you need to facilitate learning at home and to create opportunities for your child to engage with their teacher. If you have not heard from your teachers, please reach out to them and the campus administrators.
If you are in the San Antonio and Kingsville Regions and have not picked up a device from the campus, please contact the campus administrative team via email. The RGV and Austin Regions will be issuing devices within the next few days.
All essential employees will work alongside city and health officials to provide for our Jubilee families. Social distancing and health mandates are at the forefront of all tasks being completed by the Jubilee faculty and staff.
The Texas Education Agency requires the District to continue to register new students via phone registration. Therefore, campuses are ready to welcome any new students.
The health of our students and families is top priority. Thank you for your patience, support and understanding. Please continue to practice social distancing and stay safe.
Dr. Kevin Phillips
Superintendent of Schools
