Dear SBISD Families, Students, Colleagues and Community members,
In accordance with guidance issued by Governor Abbott this afternoon, Spring Branch ISD will continue online instruction through May 28, 2020, the end of our planned school year.
We will continue to support our students academically, leveraging our remote learning plan through the remainder of the school year. We will do our best to ensure social and emotional supports and resources remain a priority.
While this is not where any of us hoped our city, state or nation would be right now, we appreciate Governor Abbott for making the right decision for our community’s health. We always prioritize the safety, health and well-being of our students, staff and families.
I share in your disappointment that we will not have the honors assemblies, fifth grade parades, family picnics and year-end celebrations that are long-standing traditions across our school district. But, I do promise you this – we will do our very, very best to find new and creative ways to ensure meaning, success, joy and celebration for our children amidst this continuing and unprecedented health crisis.
I know you have many questions as a result of this announcement. I will continue to communicate with you weekly with more specifics about what this means for our students and staff.
The classrooms and hallways of our school buildings may remain empty, but our collective hearts remain open. All of us in SBISD wish you health and wellness as we continue to navigate these uncharted waters together in the days and weeks ahead.
Jennifer Blaine, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
