September 30, 2020 Dear Connally Primary Parents, This notification is sent to you with a heavy heart as we know the burden it creates for many families in our community. After much thought and consideration, Connally ISD has made the difficult decision to close the Connally Primary School for a minimum of 14 calendar days. The closure comes as a result of two confirmed positive COVID-19 cases within the past seven days, with others reporting symptoms. Last week the campus sent 140 students and staff members home for quarantine as they were identified as being in close contact with a confirmed positive case on campus. This decision was made in line with our established COVID-19 protocols. Today we received notification of a second confirmed case along with additional students/staff reporting the onset of symptoms. Upon investigating the confirmed positive cases on campus and contact tracing, it was found that both cases were in close contact with confirmed COVID positive cases outside of the school day. However, this fact does not reduce the spread of the virus to the Primary campus. Therefore, out of extreme caution, the difficult decision to move the entire campus to remote learning was made. It is imperative that students who are feeling ill, displaying symptoms OR have been in a home or other close contact with a COVID positive individual, not be sent to school. We implore parents and guardians to take the student screening measures seriously. This is one of the many ways the district is working to keep our students safe, but we cannot do it without your assistance and cooperation. All students are able to pick up a free breakfast in front of the Primary campus between the hours of 7:30 to 8:30 each morning, and lunch can be picked up between 11:00 and 12:00 Monday through Friday. Students will be able to access their coursework online in the SeeSaw application. If you have difficulties logging in or have instructional questions, please contact your child’s teacher. If you are in need of a device for your student so they can access SeeSaw, please contact the campus at 254-296-6700. We thank all of you for your patience and continued support as we strive to keep our students and staff safe! Sincerely, Wesley Holt
