Mott Update

3/24

From the Principal

School Closures

In accordance with Governor Abbott's orders, all PfISD schools and facilities will be closed through at least April 3. This includes all district and campus events. The District will await guidance from the Governor and other state officials to determine when they will open.


Distance Learning Coming Soon!

There have been several video conference meetings that have taken place with district level leaders and there will be more happening this week, specifically with the curriculum department. We will be making the plans to provide learning support for our students and delivering that information to you as soon as possible. Without a doubt, we are here to continue supporting our students and families. Please make sure that your child is practicing reading and math.


Valuable at Home Learning

It is a stressful time as all of us are trying to juggle a strange new work from home/home school/entertainment/what's next world! I encourage you to value the gift of family time. Cooking and board games have valuable learning opportunities. Household chores require physical exertion. Have your child start a journal of how they spent their days during this strange time. In addition, there are free resources listed at the bottom of the news.


The staff of Mott love and miss your children. Please know that, and tell them "Hello" from us! Teachers will be in contact with you soon!

Stay safe!

Trouble Picking Up Food From One of These Locations?

Please reply to the Mott News email. We will contact you to help find a solution so that your child will be able to get their meals.

If you know of someone else who might be having difficulty going to pick up the food, please let us know as well.

Medication Pick Up

With regards to safety and health and in an effort to assist our parents, all campus nurses will be at their campuses on Wednesday and Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.to allow for a curbside medication pick up. A parent or guardian must pick up the medication and sign for it. We will only be offering curbside pickup in order to practice social distancing. Please be patient as all medications are locked up in the office, and each student’s medication must be retrieved individually from the office by the nurse.
