LISD heads back to class

This past Friday, an announcement from Liberty ISD was made about the return to in person instruction for all students. A statement for Liberty Superintendent Cody Abshire say’s Liberty Independent School District will return to in-person instruction for all students on Monday, November 30, 2020, the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday. The decision to suspend remote learning is based on many factors, with the single biggest issue being the tremendous learning gap that KSHN reported, between face-to-face students and remote students. All students currently receiving remote instruction are expected to return on November 30. However, the district is encouraging students to return earlier, if they choose. The daily, cautionary practices and protocols that have recommended seem to the district, to be working because after two months of school, there have very few positive cases among students, teachers, and employees. LISD will continue to provide temporary remote instruction to: Students who have been asked to quarantine due to close contact exposure to COVID 19, Students who have tested positive for Covid-19, Students who are medically fragile and receive a homebound placement or Students who attend a campus that has been closed due to Covid-19. Some parents may not feel comfortable sending their student back at this time. In these instances, LISD say’s parents may withdraw their student for a home school education, enroll their student in a private school, or Transfer to a school district that offers remote learning. Again, all students at Liberty ISD will return to on campus education starting Monday November 30. Students are encouraged to return earlier if they wish.
