Nearly 4 weeks ago, SFDRCISD worked with parents to encourage them to transition to online instruction in an attempt to slow the surge of COVID-19 cases the community experienced just over the holidays. “We want to thank the parents who supported the idea of temporarily changing their child’s mode of learning to online instruction earlier this month”, stated SFDRCISD superintendent, Dr. Carlos Rios. “This measure was necessary amidst the sharp rise in cases we experienced in our community just 4 weeks ago. Parents understood the need to make the temporary change to keep their families safe, and in doing so helped to significantly contain the spread of COVID-19 to other families at school.”
Dr. Rios further explained that the District is ready and prepared to welcome students back to in-person instruction if they have been temporarily attending school online. “SFDRCISD continues to remain constantly vigilant of the positivity rate in the community. In fact, in the past few days we have seen the percentages come down little by little and closer to the positivity rate we have seen right before the winter holidays. We are at a point where we can safely encourage our families to transition back to face-to-face learning.”
SFDRCISD encourages parents to reach out to their child’s campuses if they are ready to suspend their temporary selection of online learning and re-instate their child’s face-to-face instruction.
