Comal ISD Closes March 16-20, Cancels Extracurricular Activities
by Andrew Kim
Superintendent, Comal ISD
As I mentioned yesterday, we have been working with our local and state health officials, as well as neighboring school districts to determine our course of action for next week given the continuing developments with the coronavirus.
Because of the rapidly evolving nature of this situation, and out of an abundance of caution, Comal ISD will be closed March 16 – 20 along with other school districts in the San Antonio region. In addition, all academic, athletic and fine arts extracurricular activities will be canceled starting Monday, March 16 through March 22.
At this time, we are planning to resume classes on March 23. However, we will continue to monitor this continually evolving situation and confer daily with our local and regional health officials and area school districts. We will also be sharing with you early next week additional information regarding child nutrition, online learning, and health information regarding Covid-19. Please be sure to visit our Covid-19 webpage for the latest information.
Decisions regarding school closures is something we take seriously and we work to ensure that they are in alignment with the core values of our community. We believe that by erring on the side of caution we can continually assess this evolving situation, ensure that our facilities are ready for students and staff when we return, and help protect our students, staff and community from the further spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Finally, thank you for your understanding and patience as we have worked to make a decision that is in the best interest of our community. We will stay in communication with you as this situation continues to evolve.
