Dear Copperas Cove ISD Community,
Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Copperas Cove ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through the remainder of the school year in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Our health officials report that cases are continuing to spread in neighboring counties, and the increased possibility of confirmed cases in Coryell County seems likely. Suspending operations for this length of time will allow us to determine, in coordination with state and local officials, whether the virus is continuing to have community spread or whether it has been contained.
During the closure of school campuses, CCISD will continue to provide academic and nutritional support to our students with instructional packets and grab-and-go meals provided at the locations and times listed below. Instructional support is also available through Schoology. Please remember, that parents/guardians are asked Not to exit their vehicles to pick up instructional packets or meals.
Meals may be picked up at the following locations.
Breakfast and lunch are provided free to All CCISD students of all ages and children outside of CCISD ages 0-18. Children must be present to receive meals. Meals are available for pickup during these times.
Thank you for your support and cooperation as we work to ensure that all members of the community in Copperas Cove ISD stay safe and healthy.
Joseph Burns Superintendent
Copperas Cove ISD is closely monitoring reports and information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). While no cases have been suspected among our local community, we are in daily contact with health officials from Coryell County and are following the guidance provided by the Texas Education Agency, Texas Health and Human Services and the CDC. Public health officials believe the risk to our school community is low at this time, but we understand that this is a source of concern to the community and will remain vigilant in monitoring and responding to this ever-evolving situation.
Any decisions that may need to be made regarding a change to school operations will be done so with guidance from the CDC and local health officials, along with guidance and direction from the authorities at TEA.
To help in monitoring the situation, we are asking that families and staff self-report any recent travel out of the country. The information from these self-report forms will help us assess the possible exposure at the local level to COVID-19 in order to develop plans for days and weeks ahead.
