COVID-19 INFORMATION CENTER
EMS ISD remains committed to keeping students and staff safe, healthy, and engaged in a positive learning experience. The information on the COVID-19 Information Center reflects current practices in district schools and facilities. Health and safety remain a priority, and the district continues to practice measures to minimize the spread of illness through enhanced cleaning protocols, frequent hand washing, and other personal health protections. All information on this site will be reviewed and updated as needed to reflect new requirements from federal, state, or county orders or the Texas Education Agency. Questions can be submitted directly to district leaders through the COVID-19 Information tab in the district's online Let’s Talk! system.
EMS ISD is excited to welcome all students back to our campuses for the 2021-2022 school year. Distance/remote learning was a necessity during the beginning of the pandemic and helped students continue learning throughout required close contact quarantines in the previous school year. The state did not approve funding for districts to continue offering virtual learning in the 2021-2022 school year. As a result, the district has returned to 100% in-person learning for all students beginning with the start of school on August 16, 2021. As the school year progresses, we will continue to work individually with our families to support any medical-based needs for students. This webpage will be updated as needed to provide details about district processes to continue keeping students and staff safe and engaged at school.
