The Pawnee ISD community must work together to fight COVID-19. Head to http://tea.texas.gov/staywell for vitally important public health guidance to stop the spread. If we stand apart as a community now, we will be together again soon.
Dear Pawnee ISD Families, Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Pawnee ISD (Ayala, Pawnee and Victoria) will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April 17th in an effort to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. We will continue to provide our instruction remotely by online and packets, along with our student meal services. Our health officials report that cases are continuing to spread in the state, and an increase in confirmed cases in our surrounding area 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 the week of April 6th 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 at least 2 more weeks beyond April 17th. 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: · Don’t shake hands · Wash your hands regularly · Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded places and maintaining 3 to 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length) · If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups · For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms. · If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice . · Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold. · Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, will assess conditions throughout the week, and will provide the next update by April 10 via our website and email. Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of our community stay safe and healthy. God Bless, Michelle Hartmann, Superintendent

Pawnee Elem/Junior High will be closed for traditional on-campus instruction starting March 23 through April 3 to support our community and health care professionals in the ongoing goal of containing the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. However, Beginning March 23rd we will begin remote instruction by providing our students multiple methods of learning to best fit their learning styles. We are also committed to providing alternatives for families who may have either limited Internet or technology in their homes. Your child’s teacher(s) will be contacting you to get a better idea of each child’s specific needs. Please feel free to share with them other needs your family may be having during these uncertain times. Additionally, all extracurricular activities, practices and athletic events are suspended while we are closed. We do not make this decision lightly. We fully realize it presents significant difficulties to working parents. However, we are hopeful that these measures will better ensure the long-term health and safety of children, staff, and the larger community. We have counselors on staff who are here to assist you. Pawnee ISD is finalizing logistics on distance learning options and the distribution of food to address children’s nutritional needs while school is out. More information and guidance will be made available on our website by Tuesday, March 24th. We will also take these weeks to further clean schools and buses and restock custodial and nursing supplies. Additionally, Pawnee ISD asks the broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness: • Don’t shake hands • Wash your hands regularly • Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded placed and maintaining 3 to 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length) • If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups • For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and contact your campus to let them know. • If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice . • Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold. • Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, will assess conditions throughout the week, and will provide the next update by Wednesday, March 25th via our website and email. Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in Pawnee stay safe and healthy. Sincerely, Michelle Hartmann Superintendent
Dear Pawnee ISD Family, Pawnee ISD is closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in our state while our district is on its regularly scheduled Spring Break.
