Spring ISD announced its schedule for the coming week after an unprecedented winter storm caused widespread power and water outages across the area with many homes damaged from broken pipes.
To give families and staff time to recover, all campuses and district offices will be closed on Monday, Feb. 22. On Tuesday, Feb. 23, there will be no virtual or in-person classes and teachers/students will have another day off for recovery. However, those employees on a 226-day contract should report to work in person on Tuesday, Feb. 23, to help prepare campuses for teachers to return on Wednesday, Feb. 24, which was already a scheduled remote asynchronous day for all students.
Unfortunately, three of campuses in the district suffered additional damage so campus staff at Bailey, Burchett and Twin Creeks will also remain home on Wednesday, Feb. 24 providing remote asynchronous instruction to students. On Thursday, Feb. 25 and Friday, Feb. 26, the district will resume normal operations and all in-person and virtual students will return to their regular schedules, except for those at Bailey, Burchett and Twin Creeks, where students and staff will engage in remote synchronous learning.
With ongoing shortages in grocery stores, the district announced that curbside meal service will resume at all regular locations, except for Bailey Middle School, starting Monday, Feb. 22. “We hope this will provide families who have not had water, or who lost food during the power outages, some relief,” said Superintendent Rodney E. Watson.
- Monday, Feb. 22: All campuses and district offices will be closed. Employees should not report to work.
- Tuesday, Feb. 23: All campuses will be closed and no classes will be held. Teachers and students will have the day off. However, any employees on a 226-day contract should report to their office/worksite.
- Wednesday, Feb. 24: Teachers will return to campus but all students will participate in the remote asynchronous learning day that was previously scheduled. Teachers at Bailey, Burchett and Twin Creeks, however, will work from home.
- Thursday, Feb. 25 and Friday, Feb. 26: All district operations will return to a normal schedule, and both in-person and virtual students will report to their classes. However, students and teachers at Bailey, Burchett and Twin Creeks will participate in remote synchronous learning on both of these days.
Any families or staff with additional questions or concerns should reach out to their campus or supervisor.
