Jarrell ISD & the COVID-19 Pandemic 

Updated July 23, 2020 - Jarrell ISD’s top priority is protecting the health and safety of our students and staff.

District administrators have been working all summer, staying up-to-date with guidance from TEA, to develop a back-to-school plan for the 2020-21 school year.  This plan will ensure all students get an excellent education and addresses important safety measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

To develop this plan, district leaders have been meeting with a Back-to-School Taskforce to gather feedback from stakeholders. 

The Taskforce met on July 15 from 9-11:30 a.m. to review the current guidance from TEA. Administration developed a plan framework and met with the Taskforce again on July 22 from 9-11:30 a.m. to gather feedback. 

Back-to-School Taskforce Presentation

The Back-to-School plan was presented to the Board of Trustees on Wednesday, July 22:  

Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Return-to-School plan is subject to change.

If you have symptoms of respiratory illness including cough, fever and shortness of breath, please contact your healthcare provider.

It is important to call ahead before arriving at a clinic, urgent care or emergency department to avoid potential spread. For more information, visit  the Williamson County Cities and Health District website.
