A Note from Mrs. Tate

April 23, 2020


Dear Elementary Parents,


On April 17, Governor Greg Abbott announced that schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. While this is not the way we anticipated the school year would end, we know this is the best decision for the safety and well-being of our students and the entire community. BISD will continue with distance learning in a way that will allow us to successfully complete the school year while we focus on our planning for summer offerings and the reopening of the next school year.


Next week’s assignment details will be posted to your child’s course’ Google Classrooms by the end of the day Thursday, April 23. All content course assignments have been designed to be completed by Friday, May 1. For those students with limited/no digital access, instructional packets are available.


Below is a brief description of the work your child will be working on this week by subject.

We continue to update our supportive resources that can be found on our main BISD website www.boerneisd.net, as well as on our Distance Learning website which can be found at bit.ly/BISDathome. Feel free to contact your child’s teacher, counselor or myself as needed.


We look forward to the day that we can welcome our students and staff back into our buildings. In the meantime, stay safe and connected to us.
