SSISD Information Concerning Covid-19


Update April 17, 2020

In accordance with Governor Abbott’s executive order issued April 17, 2020, SSISD will continue its school closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. SSISD will continue to serve students through May 21st via the Distance Learning Program.

The District is currently developing plans for our High School Graduation and Honors Breakfast.  Details will be available soon.
 
The Prom and 8th Grade Banquet are postponed at this time.  The District is hopeful that we will be permitted to host these events during the summer.  The District is closely monitoring social distancing requirements caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and will make every effort to schedule these events once they are permissible.

 

All UIL sanctioned activities (contests, practices, rehearsals and workouts) are suspended until further notice.

Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community stay safe and healthy.
