Nacogdoches ISD interim Superintendent Alton Frailey sent out this letter to parents and employees today:
Today, Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a public health disaster for the state. In this declaration all schools were ordered closed through April 3, 2020, because of the ongoing threat from COVID-19 (coronavirus). Nacogdoches ISD has now closed its schools to in-person classes indefinitely, pending action from the governor to lift or extend the existing closure. It is possible that conditions in Nacogdoches County could require NISD to extend the closure beyond the time the governor decides school can reopen statewide.
Continue to monitor NISD’s social media accounts [Twitter: @NacISD; Facebook: @nacogdoches.isd] for further updates. NISD will also communicate with parents and staff through email updates, and the district will provide updates to Nacogdoches-area media.
NISD Student Nutrition will continue to provide meals for students age 18 and younger. Also, online learning resources are available by going to www.nacisd.org. Beginning next week, paper learning resources for students lacking Internet connection at home will be available for parents to pick up. Information on pick-up times and sites will be released beforehand on the district’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and through email notification.
