With rising concerns from the Centers for Disease Control,(CDC) regarding individuals that have recently traveled to Level 3 Travel Health Notice countries and the announcement from the World Health Organization that COVID-19 is now declared a pandemic, Celina ISD is extending spring break for one more week as a precaution.
Celina schools will remain closed Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th. Celina ISD will continue to assess the situation and will provide up to date information as it becomes available through all CISD communication avenues. District offices and all-district events/competitions are considered canceled until further notice.
The district will continue to monitor and evaluate the public health situation prior to reopening on Monday, March 23rd, in order to minimize any health or safety risks to our students and staff. Extending break was not a requirement, but Celina ISD has chosen to be cautious as we continue to follow updates from the CDC and other health organizations.
If additional delays are needed, Celina ISD will be furthering their discussions as to alternative educational options for the future. All discussions are in the early stages and no decisions have been made at this time.
The CDC recommends for all individuals to follow preventative measures, such as hand washing, limited interaction, disinfecting frequently visited surfaces and social distancing. For further information, the CDC website link is below.
