The new school year is a few weeks away, with new COVID-19 variants and cases growing in the area, some parents are worried about kids returning to school.
Mission CISD is preparing to make sure students are safe once they’re back in the classrooms on August 16.
Mission CISD Superintendent Dr. Carol G. Perez says the district has been preparing for months “We are going to continue to be on the alert. We are disinfecting our classrooms every single day, even though the CDC says once a week. We are not taking any chances.”
Perez said a letter was sent to parents strongly recommending the use of masks, even though it is not required.
Multiple new programs will also be incorporated this year to help cope not only with academics, but other emotional support and counseling as students transition into a new year and get back to speed.
