Fall 2020 Return to Learn
PLEASE NOTE: The details on this website are subject to change as directives from governing authorities, health officials or environmental conditions may determine.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of our schools, community, and world. Reopening school in August will be very complex due to many unknown and evolving variables. With so many unknowns, students, parents, and staff have understandable and legitimate concerns.
In preparation for the upcoming school year and the uncertainty of what the future holds, PfISD has created a Re-Entry Task Force to consider all of the district’s options while maintaining the safety and health of our students and staff members. The task force has been working since May with the following charges:
- Should schools not reopen, develop a distance learning plan that ensures TEKS-aligned and rigorous instruction, progress monitoring, and intervention can occur.
- Should schools need to close for an extended period of time during the 2020-21 school year, develop a distance learning plan that ensures TEKS-aligned and rigorous instruction, progress monitoring, and intervention occur with minimal disruption.
- Establish reopening practices and guidelines that maximize physical distancing in order to manage the risk of the coronavirus infection rate with PfISD schools and buildings.
As any decisions are made, this website will contain the recommendations to safely re-engage students and employees in the 2020-21 school year based on current constraints and considerations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
