Danville Independent Schools will remain virtual through Jan. 15

The following message was posted on the Danville Independent Schools Facebook page as a letter from superintendent Tammy McDonald. The letter has been lightly edited for stylistic reasons only. 

Dear parents and guardians,

I hope everyone is having a restful holiday break. We continue to follow the COVID-19 spread closely. It has already impacted our community greatly but especially in the last few weeks.

Following winter break, out start back to school on Jan. 4 will be virtual and will continue virtually through Jan. 15. In partnership with the Danville-Boyle County Health Department, we will continue to monitor the holiday surge of cases and make adjustments to this plan as advised. We will communicate with more information regarding the last two weeks of January after the new year.

It is our hope that we can return to a Hybrid A/B model of instruction on Jan. 19, 2021.

Our food service team will again be providing meals following winter break. Meal pickups will be held each week while we are virtual at Hogsett and Toliver. For more information, please visit our website and/or social media.

We encourage our community to mask up and social distance so our incident rate will decrease, allowing us to return to in-person learning.

Thank you for your flexibility during this challenging time. We wish you a great start to 2021. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact your child’s school or Central Office.

 

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. Tammy McDonald, Superintendent
