A Note from Mrs. Tate

Dear Elementary Parents,


I cannot thank you enough for the support you have shown to BISD during this school closure. By working together, we can ensure your child(ren) receive all the help they need to have the most successful Spring semester possible, despite the challenges we are all facing.

Your child’s assignment details will be posted to their course’ Google Classrooms or SeeSaw by the end of the day Thursday, April 9th. For those students with limited/no digital access, instructional packets are available. All content course assignments have been designed to be completed by Friday, April 17.


The BISD Grading Guidelines for school closure have been finalized. Teachers will begin to record grades starting Monday, April 13. You can find these guidelines and additional resources on our distance learning website at bit.ly/BISDathome. Please feel free to email your child’s teacher or me at tanya.tate@boerneisd.net if you have any questions.


Thank you for all that you do.
