All EMS schools and facilities will be closed to the public through the end of the school year. Governor Greg Abbott has declared a Public Health Disaster in Texas due to COVID-19 – the first of its kind in the state since 1901. This closure is to encourage social distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. All extracurricular activities and school events have been canceled during the same period. We will reevaluate the situation at the end of this closure before making any other long-term announcements.
The health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority. The goals of this announced closure are to help prevent the spread of disease and to give our staff additional time to plan for continuity of services (online learning) should it become necessary for public schools to close for longer. We ask each of you to do your part to help prevent the spread of disease by:
- Limiting your attendance at social gatherings and large public events.
- Isolating yourself if you begin experiencing symptoms like fever, coughing, or shortness of breath.
- Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoiding close contact with other people.
- Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, if available, or into your elbow.
