Dilley ISD will return to in-person learning beginning on Tuesday, April 6 for all students according to district Superintendent Dr. Emilio Castro.
“This decision has been made in consultation with campus and district leadership,” Dr. Castro said in a press release. “All students will be in school the last six weeks of this school year to complete required testing and to identify gaps in learning that have occurred.
“We will continue to remotely serve only students with personal health concerns or students with at-home family members who are considered medically fragile. A medical exemption form will need to be completed by a doctor for these special cases.
“I want to take a moment to thank everyone for the incredible support of our children, as well a your patience with us as we have adapted and improved our process in learning this pandemic year,” he said. “Additionally, we will continue using all of our COVID safety protocols for the remainder of the year. Student safety first is and will remain a top priority for us.”
Castro noted that many of the district’s teachers have received vaccinations and the process is ongoing, with additional plans to offer COVID-19 vaccinations for students ages 16 and over.
In the event of infection or quarantine, Castro said the affected student will revert back to remote learning for the amount of time required by district protocols. Day-to-day remote learning however, will not be a choice for families otherwise.
“Dilley ISD continues to enforce social distancing, the wearing of masks and the sanitation protocols that have been in place since the beginning of the school year,” the superintendent said.
Parents with questions are asked to contact their campus principals.
