March 16 Update

  • Dear Aubrey ISD families,

     

    We hope this message finds you well. As you are aware, the district has closed this week (March 16-20, 2020). I wanted to give you some idea about timing for information and activities by district staff as we proceed this week.

     

    1. I am participating in a daily conference call with the Commissioner of Education in order to receive state level updates and guidance.

    2. The Superintendents in Denton County have scheduled a conference call for Wednesday afternoon. This group will share information and collaborate between districts on planning as we move forward. 

    3. Aubrey ISD plans to begin serving breakfast and lunches on Thursday, March 19, 2020.  The exact schedule and nature of the meal service will be shared with you by Wednesday, March 18, 2020. We will be distributing any meals “curbside.”

    4. If the district remains closed March 23-27, 2020 we plan to deliver lessons and instruction remotely. Our wonderful teachers will be collaborating remotely to create plans this week to implement instruction next week, if necessary. We will communicate the general plan with you by Wednesday, March 18, 2020 via email and our notification system. The specific instructional plans will be e-mailed by principals and/or teachers by Friday, March 20th.

    5. Aubrey ISD will notify parents as soon as decisions are made regarding future closure or schedule adaptations. This will not occur before the conference call on Wednesday, March 18th. Please know we will notify you as soon as possible, but information is very fluid and we want to make the most informed decision possible. We plan to communicate decisions on future schedules Thursday or Friday.

     

    Aubrey ISD has established a web page on our district website dedicated to information regarding our policies/procedures dealing with the COVID-19.  This webpage has information related to our closing this week and how we plan to move forward once school reopens. The information is subject to change based on new information as this emergency progresses.  There is a PowerPoint presentation linked on the web page that has been created to give parents some helpful ideas regarding how to talk to your children about COVID-19. The link to the informational website is: https://www.aubreyisd.net/coronavirus

     

    I want to thank each of you for your understanding and support as we all work together to take care of one another during this health emergency.

     

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Belding
