On Friday, April 17, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott announced that doctors advise it would be unsafe to reopen public schools. Therefore, school classrooms are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The closure pertains to all institutions including public, private and higher education. Teachers will be allowed in their classrooms for video instruction, administrative duties or to clean out the classroom. TEA director Mike Morath will have more complete instructions with details on how to proceed with the completion of the year and how to conduct graduation ceremonies. SCHOOL IS NOT OUT UNTIL MAY 20, 2020. Packets will still be provided to students as well as continuing online learning. Meals will be provided. Parent logs for student activity will need to be turned in. Each student is responsible for his/her completion of instruction until the end of the school year.
Just a few more days until the official LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! It has certainly been an interesting 2nd semester and as it draws to an end, we want to thank our teachers for their encouragement and guidance to the students and their parents. May 4-8 was Teacher Appreciation Week and the teachers at Motley Co. ISD were surprised by the sidewalk art greeting them on Monday morning. The anonymous artists (we do have cameras you know) left messages of love and appreciation. MCPC President, Marijon Pernell, came bearing gift cards and boxes of snacks including some of the biggest chocolate chip cookies we’ve ever seen! Thank you to all for recognizing our dedicated staff.
