TEA asked us to share: The New Waverly 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.
We have attached 2 new documents. As you know the home instruction requirement is evolving from the State of Texas. As a result we will be starting a new phase next week. We know that there will be challenges, but we will work together and help each other out. Even though we will now be tracking student progress for credit and completion, I stress that we will work with our families to help students achieve. Please let you advisor/teacher know of questions and concerns!
Passing along a huge thanks to our commissioner’s office and our ESD for gifting hand sanitizer! We are giving those away with food pick ups (bus stop or elementary) but an adult must be present.
Week 2 packets are available via: campuses, meal distribution points, or online. Faculty members are working on the next phase of home instruction for both hi tech and low tech learning situations. We will have more materials and opportunities available soon (may already be available)!
We wanted to reach out and let everyone know that our staff is missing your children! Again we have two main links on webpage: home instructional supports and Coronavirus updates, including some videos. Videos are NOT professional so try not to be too critical! 😀
Please continue to watch our "COVID-19 Updates" page on the district website for continued information.
Beginning today you may access instructional materials for your students in the following ways: Each campus has a pickup/drop off area (old newspaper machines) for hard copy packets, you may access the same documents from our website in pdf format under Menu>home instructional support, or you can access a mobile version from our app under documents>home instructional support for students. These first assignments are meant for review and we will plan on updating each Monday afternoon for the week. Each campus is working on plans for providing student feedback.
We have made the decision to keep NWISD campuses closed until April 6.This complies with the President's request (and slightly exceeds it). We have been in contact with school board, numerous districts, and numerous health officials. Many districts are planning for longer shut downs, but we hope to return as soon as possible. We realize that the date to return is subject to change; we will also be providing more detailed information over the next several days.
schools are required to provide instructional support materials at home. Some teachers have begun emailing. Some items will be posted online. Additionally we will have physical packets available at schools. This will be an ongoing process. If you receive emails or web based access codes but do not have internet and/or home computer we will provide alternate versions in a physical form (packets etc). We will let you know when those are available for pickup, which will most likely be Wednesday.
We will be serving breakfast and lunch for all students beginning tomorrow. Meals may be picked up at New Waverly Elementary 7:30-8:30 and 11:00-1:00. ALL NWISD STUDENTS qualify for meals. We are also looking into using busses for delivery later in the week.
We are in the process of making plans to provide at home instructional support for this week for all students and expand our food service for qualifying students. We are adding curbside breakfast from 7:30-8:30 beginning tomorrow morning. Further updates to come this afternoon.
Families who qualify for free and reduced lunch will be able to pick up a boxed meal next week each day from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm. Please proceed to the back of New Waverly Elementary (car rider line). Someone will be there to take your information and deliver meal.
After gathering data NWISD has decided to extend spring break until Monday March 23. We will have a further detailed message to follow, but we wanted to let our families know. This is a precautionary move only and we expect to be out for only 1 additional week at this time.
We know everyone has questions about Coronavirus. NWISD has stayed in contact with local and state health officials. We also are in contact with surrounding districts. We plan to return to school as scheduled on Monday. However, this is a rapidly changing situation and we continue to meet and monitor our response. If there is any changes we will notify you via all communication mediums. We have engaged in deep cleaning campuses during the break and have consistently met with health officials. We will pass along information as it becomes available.
Game changes due to expected severe weather tomorrow. Bulldog Soccer and Softball have moved games to Monday (tonight). Soccer hosts Palestine @ 6:00 pm. Softball hosts Madisonville @ 4:30 (JV) and 6:00 (Varsity). Baseball remains scheduled for tomorrow @ Anahuac.
