Dear Northside families,
We continue to actively monitor developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) in conjunction with local and state public health officials, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
This week, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg issued a third public health emergency and prohibited gatherings of more than 50 people.
Therefore, and because of the rapidly evolving nature of this situation and out of an abundance of caution, Northside ISD is joining other San Antonio area districts in extending our closure of campus classrooms through Friday, April 3. Parents should begin, if you have not already done so, to plan for long term closures of schools.
In the meantime, we will continue to offer curbside meals for our students for breakfast and lunch at designated locations around the District. We are also working to implement remote instruction. We will continue to update the district website about both meal service and remote instruction and will provide regular updates on our website, social media channels, and through our email messaging system. We have developed Frequently Asked Questions that we have published on our website and will continue to update them as needed.
During this unprecedented time, we want you to know that the safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. We understand that these developments have put a strain on families. We continue to be committed to educating our students. We will get through this by working together. Thank you for your patience and understanding and for your support of Northside schools.
Dr. Brian Woods Superintendent
