Motley County ISD administration is announcing the 2020-2021 school year will begin on schedule. Teachers will report for in-service the week of August 10-14 and students begin classes August 17. We will have a four (4) day school week this year. Classes will begin at 7:45 am and end at 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday. There will be 10 Fridays that will be regular school days. Due to COVID-19, parents will have the option to send their children to the campus or opt for remote learning. Whether in school or learning from home, requirements will remain the same as in previous years. Students must attend 90% of the hours offered for each class in order to advance to the next grade level. Plans are for classroom and remote learning students to receive the same lesson plans and every student will be held accountable for the assignments. All work will be graded equally. The decision to send a child to the classroom or learn from home is in effect for a complete grading period. Change to the method of teaching requires a request at least 2 weeks prior to the end of the grading period.
The health and welfare of students, teachers and staff is a priority at M C ISD. A new air filtration system has been installed in all air vents to clean and purify the air, continually killing viruses. A hand sanitizing station will be placed at each entrance to the building. Sanitizing wipes will be available in the classrooms and common surfaces (desks, chairs, door handles, etc.) will be cleaned between class periods. Teachers and staff are required to self-screen daily and temperature will be taken upon arrival. At this time, facial coverings for students, teachers, and staff are allowed but not required.
Visitors have always been welcome at MC ISD but due to health concerns and government restrictions on public gatherings, there will be no assemblies until further notice. The administration asks parents to carefully consider any visit to the campus. All visitors will be asked to complete a health screening form and temperature will be taken. Anyone with a temp of 100.4 or greater will not be allowed in the building.
As we work to provide a healthy, safe environment for the best educational experience for all students, we realize there will be questions. If you need information regardng our planned procedures, please call William Cochran, James Richards, Coby Cochran, or Deb Spray at 806-347-2676.
ALL PLANS AND PROCEDURES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
