On Tuesday, Governor Abbott rescinded the statewide mask mandate effective Wednesday, March 10th (next Wednesday). Yesterday, the Texas Education Agency provided guidelines for public schools stating that masks are still required in Texas public schools unless local school boards decide to make them optional. Copy and paste the link below to access TEA’s new public guidance on masks.
Today, Texas Governor Greg Abbott lifted the State mandate requiring mandatory masks and is allowing businesses to return to 100% occupancy effective Wednesday, March 10, 2021.
While Weatherford ISD is waiting on further guidance from TEA Commissioner Morath, we are asking all staff and students to continue following our current safety protocols including social distancing and required masks until March 10th.
As we learn more details regarding masks in schools, we will communicate with families and staff.
Thank you for your patience and support.
It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I let you know we lost a member of our Hall Middle School family last night. Collin Sturgis, an 8th grade student, passed away after sustaining a serious injury at his home on Monday evening.
This is an incredibly sad time for all of us, especially those who knew Collin as a friend and student. Collin was a popular, hard working student who was involved in Hall athletics. He was both independent and fun loving.
While we have not yet learned of any family needs, I would ask that you hold them in your thoughts and prayers. We will share service arrangements and any other pertinent information as soon as it becomes available.
As an added measure of care, we will have additional counselors at school for the rest of the week to assist students, staff, and parents with this loss. If you have concerns about your student please do not hesitate to contact us so we can keep an especially close watch on them.
Families of students at Hall Middle School may call 817-598-2822. Families with students at other campuses should call their child's school or send a text to email@example.com .
We appreciate your support during this difficult time.
Due to poor road conditions that exist in portions of our school district and ongoing power outages affecting our families and staff, Weatherford ISD will be closed through Friday, February 19th. There will be no in-person or virtual classes tomorrow.
We look forward to seeing our students and staff back at school on Monday, February 22nd.
Thank you for your flexibility as we strive to keep everyone safe during this winter storm.
We hope this message finds you and your family safe and warm during this historic winter storm.
Due to the continued forecast for more snow/ice, unsafe road conditions, and rolling blackouts, Weatherford ISD will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (February 16, 17, and 18).
All Weatherford ISD buildings will be closed during this time and there will be no school for in-person learning or students enrolled in the Virtual Learning Academy.
The impact of this weather closing could likely extend through Friday. We will provide an update by Thursday morning to give families and staff time to plan.
Thank you for your flexibility as we strive to keep everyone safe during this winter storm. Stay safe and stay inside.
