Letter from Superintendent Truelock
March 2, 2021
Dear HISD family,
Governor Abbott today announced an end to several COVID-19 restrictions in our state, including occupancy capacity and mask orders, effective next Wednesday, March 10th. We have not yet seen the new orders or any associated documents, as they have not yet been released. This will be a fluid situation over the next several days as we obtain guidance from our local county authorities, the UIL, and the Texas Education Agency.
There are also unanswered questions about what this means for guidelines regarding both quarantine and close contact exposure. HISD will continue to operate under all current guidelines until next Wednesday, and we will release new information as soon as we get it.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to do our best to keep your kids healthy, safe, and learning here in Hondo ISD.
A’Lann Truelock, Ed. D.
