Principal's Message

Hello Los Encinos parents/guardians. I hope each of you and your families are safe and doing well during this difficult time we are all experiencing. Many of you are already receiving updates via our Los Encinos Facebook page, School Messenger and Class Dojo. Thank you for staying connected with us during this time our campus and district is closed to the public. Please know my staff and I want to serve and support you and your child during this social distancing period. I thank you for taking the time to read important information in this newsletter concerning your child's education moving forward until our campus reopens to the public. Please know you can email me at cesierra@ccisd.us or my assistant principal at nmrodriguez@ccisd.us should you have any questions or concerns.

Student Packet Curbside Pick-Up ***CHANGE OF DATE***


Due to Nueces County considering a shelter in place this week, we have decided to move up our distribution of student work packets (for those who have requested this preferred instructional delivery method) to Tuesday, March 24th from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.



Curbside packet pick-up will be available for parents/guardians who responded to their child's teacher's message on how you wanted instructional materials to be delivered.


We ask that you remain in your vehicle while our staff hands you the items. You may receive workbooks to take home to your child. We ask that you please keep this workbook at home and it does not need to be returned to school.


If you are walking to our campus we ask that you please follow all CDC requirements of social distancing. We will have a place marked for you to wait in line outside of our cafeteria area.

Distance Learning

We are committed to providing distance learning opportunities to our students until we return to our campus. Teachers have already been contacting parents/guardians since Thursday, March 19th to get your feedback on your preferred method of instructional delivery for your child(ren). If you have not already responded to your child's teacher, please email or Class Dojo him/her. This will allow us to provide your child with the learning materials needed by our first distribution date of Wednesday, March 25th.

Do you need help learning how to log into Canvas to help your child access Rapid Identity? Rapid Identity is the hub for many of the online resources your child can access from home.

Virtual Spirit Week

We know our students love to dress up on our spirit days so let's keep the fun going virtually. All you have do is take a picture of your child and email it to cesierra@ccisd.us each day of our scheduled activity. If you're able to email your picture by 6:00 p.m. each day that would be most helpful. We'll make sure to post your picture on our campus Facebook page.
