Welcome to uncharted territory! We must continue to educate our students, offer meals, and meet the needs of our special education students. There are many ways that this can be done. We are moving much of our teaching to online and digital platforms. We will also create take-home paper or digital email work packets for students.

Childress ISD will continue to offer instruction to your students from home. Principals and teachers will be available via email for questions and concerns during normal school hours. No students are allowed in any school facilities.

Childress ISD is closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 and is working to create protocols in case COVID-19 becomes established in our community. For now, our community is reporting no instances of a coronavirus outbreak, but that could change as time goes on.

Help our community to reduce the likelihood of a coronavirus outbreak. The CDC highly suggests that the most proactive steps people should take are for everyone to practice good habits, including:

  • Wash your hands often for 20 seconds using soap and water.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.

Please use this page to stay updated. Childress ISD will continue to communicate with you in the days and weeks to come. It is possible that we may need to cancel classes if it appears the coronavirus has affected our community in a significant way.

As always, the safety of our students, staff and families remain our top priority. Childress ISD will continue to proceed with caution to protect everyone’s health and wellbeing.
