First day of school for both in-person and virtual instruction is scheduled for Wednesday, August 19th, 2020. For campus-specific information, refer to the Campus Reopening plans for your child’s campus that can be found below. Secondary Students will start school on an “A” day.




Please refer to the “Return to School” information provided on our website. The COVID-19 situation is fluid; thus, the information contained in the document is intended to summarize the district’s current procedures and is subject to change based on additional information received from federal, state, and local entities.  COVID-19 Teams have been created at each campus and will be activated as needed.  For more information, please contact our District COVID-19 Coordinator Dr. John Mathews at 469-742-9100 or by email at [email protected]


Face coverings are required for all 4th-12th grade students per Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-29. Pre-K-3rd grade students are highly encouraged to wear face coverings but are not required for in-person instruction, unless specified by the teacher. Please refer to your campus Reopening Plans below for further information.


All immunizations must be up-to-date in order to attend in-person instruction.

7th Grade Students must provide an updated shot record before attending in-person instruction. All 7th grade students must have the TDap booster and Meningococcal vaccine in order to attend in-person instruction. For more information, please contact your campus nurse here.

Students enrolled in grades 6-12 will be issued a device that will be used in-person and at home. Elementary students will also be issued their own device, but it will be stored in the classroom and is not to be taken home.


Supply lists for students enrolled in grades PreK-8th can viewed below. If you purchased supplies through PTA last spring, they will be delivered to your child’s classroom prior to the first day of school.

CHS Students - Your teachers will share what you will need for your classes on the first day of school. The CHS Math Department is requiring students to purchase personal calculators. The TI-84, regular or plus, is the best option for all math classes, both in high school and beyond.

Virtual Students ONLY - Buying school supplies is up to each individual student enrolled in virtual instruction. It is our hope that the entire district will return to in-person instruction for all, which will require school supplies from students who previously were on the virtual plan.

Excluding parental drop-off and pick-up procedures, visitors will be restricted to only those essential to school operations. Essential visitors will be screened prior to entering campus for COVID-19 symptoms to include the possibility of having had close contact with an individual who is lab-confirmed with COVID-19 and/or is displaying symptoms as defined by health authorities. These restrictions are in place to minimize exposure and the risk of spreading the virus to our students and faculty.

Parents/visitors will NOT be allowed on campus for breakfast, lunch, or any individual/campus specific celebrations. Students are allowed to bring their own lunch, but are encouraged to bring items that can be easily opened independently. No other outside food is permitted including, GrubHub deliveries, fast food selections, and other birthday-related food items.


Transporting your child to and from school safely has always been and will remain our top priority. Masks will be worn by drivers while loading and unloading students. Social distancing techniques will be practiced to the greatest extent possible.  All bus riders enrolled in PreK-12th grade are required to wear a mask for the duration of the bus ride to and from school.  Hand sanitizer will be provided  on all buses. CISD buses and other route vehicles will be disinfected daily after both morning and afternoon routes.
