Updated School Closure Information

Covid-19 Update (March 31st )

White Oak Community,

Today, Tuesday, March 31st , Governor Abbott extended the school closure period for Texas school districts through May 4th. White Oak ISD will comply with this order. Tentatively students will return to school on Tuesday, May 5th. We will continue to follow future guidance from the Governor, CDC, T.E.A. ,County Judge etc. and will disseminate ASAP.

White Oak ISD will continue with the ‘continuity of education’ plan both hard-copy and online for as long as is practical (through the end of May as needed). We are attempting to balance the need of keeping our students engaged in the learning
process and the logistical, real-life issues facing parents and guardians in our community.

White Oak class of 2020: Our heart is breaking for each of you and we understand that this is a difficult time. Please know that we are exploring every option that we can think of to try and give closure for y’all. At this point we are not sure if UIL activities can/will resume (currently shut down until May 4th) but we will update as we can. We WILL have some sort of graduation ceremony, although at this point we are not sure what that might look like….perhaps a virtual ceremony to begin with and an ‘actual’ ceremony at a later date. We want to give each of you your moment. We will update.

The lunch/breakfast program will continue uninterrupted.

Thank you for your continued support during these very challenging times. I know it is difficult for everyone. Please know that White Oak ISD is trying to make the best decisions we can that benefit our kiddos and community during these very
fluid and changing times. Please stay safe, healthy and continue to follow CDC recommendations.

Go Roughnecks!
