School Closure Update

White Oak Community,

Today, Tuesday, March 31 st, Governor Abbott extended the school closure period
for Texas school districts through May 4th. White Oak ISD will comply with this
order. Tentatively students will return to school on Tuesday, May 5th. We will
continue to follow future guidance from the Governor, CDC, T.E.A. , County Judge
etc. and will disseminate ASAP.

White Oak ISD will continue with the ‘continuity of education’ plan both hard-
copy and online for as long as it is practical (through the end of May as needed). We
are attempting to balance the need of keeping our students engaged in the learning
process and the logistical, real-life issues facing parents and guardians in our

White Oak class of 2020: Our heart is breaking for each of you and we
understand that this is a difficult time. Please know that we are exploring every
option that we can think of to try and give closure for y’all. At this point, we are
not sure if UIL activities can/will resume (currently shut down until May 4th) but
we will update as we can. We WILL have some sort of graduation ceremony,
although at this point we are not sure what that might look like….perhaps a virtual
ceremony to begin with and an ‘actual’ ceremony at a later date. We want to give
each of you your moment. We will update.

The lunch/breakfast program will continue uninterrupted.

Thank you for your continued support during these very challenging times. I know
it is difficult for everyone. Please know that White Oak ISD is trying to make the
best decisions we can that benefit our kiddos and community during these very
fluid and changing times. Please stay safe, healthy and continue to follow CDC
