Brenham ISD has announced its schools are now closed until further notice.
In an update this (Monday) morning from the school district, Brenham ISD said it will extend the suspension of normal school operations beyond Friday, April 3rd. It said, given the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation in the Brenham community and beyond, it is difficult to release a specific date on which students and staff will return to normal operations.
The school district said, rather than set a possible return date that is likely to continue to change, it will “wait for the green light” from health officials that it is safe to return. Communication will be sent out a week prior to resuming normal operations, in order to give students and parents enough time to prepare, and to give custodial staff time to clean all buildings.
The district said it will continue to work closely with local and state leaders and monitor their stay-home directives. It asks that members of the community continue to follow recommendations for social distancing to guard against illness.
During this time, the district will continue providing drive-thru meals and remote learning resources, saying it will do so through the end of the school year if necessary.
The district thanks all parents for taking on the “greatly increased” role of providing educational support for their children, saying this has been a challenging time for the school community as many balance career, family, and childcare. It said it will continue to offer help and assistance for the community in any way that it can.
