Governor Abbott, the Texas Education Agency, and the health department have been providing executive orders, recommendations, and guidelines that will shape the beginning of school for Fall 2020. SMSD has used that information to strategize our learning programs for all of our students and staff starting classes on Wednesday, August 19. We recommend caution in sending students directly back to school for in-person instruction because of the current surge for COVID-19 cases. As the situation continues to change, this means many of our decisions regarding the protocol and measures needed to ensure the safety and health of our students and staff will be made in real time. We will continue to put the safety and education of our students and staff before anything else and this page will provide you with the latest updates.
