COVID - 19 Distance eLearning and Informational Updates

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,


The COVID - 19 impact on our schools and community is rapidly changing by the minute. Therefore, our action plan and responses must evolve accordingly. The decision was made this week to extend the closure of all schools and facilities through Friday, April 17, 2020. Currently, all Sanger ISD campuses and facilities (including all athletic facilities) are closed. Sanger ISD will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation prior to reopening school on Monday, April 20, 2020, and will communicate across all platforms as updates become available.
