“We are thankful for everyone’s hard work and prayers as COVID numbers in SISD (8 active cases, 0.32%) and throughout SISD counties are now at the lowest we have seen since several days before students began the school year on August 16th.

Throughout the past 18 months students have missed an unprecedented amount of time in front of teachers causing massive gaps in student on grade level knowledge and skills. Some students have been quarantined and/or ill for more than half the days of school this year. As we move forward, let’s set an overall SISD attendance goal of 95% this six weeks. Let’s all make sure we do our part in giving our teachers the gift of as much time as possible to be in front of our students every school day.”
