Dear Parents and Guardians,
No one expected our 2019-2020 school year to end so abruptly. No one anticipated our students not being able to return to school this year. We are dealing with a situation that is unprecedented, and one that I hope we never face again. I want you to know that during this incredibly difficult time I have seen some of the greatest acts of kindness from our staff, our students, and our community. Our Bulldog family has stood firm and solid throughout this pandemic.
By now you know the governor has stated our buildings will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. This poses some unique challenges for our district; however, we have worked diligently to set plans in place to make these last weeks of school the very best for our students!
The school calendar has been altered. Our students will finish school two days earlier than planned. The last day of instruction for QISD will be Wednesday, May 20th. May 21st and 22nd will become staff workdays. You will find an updated calendar included in this correspondence.
Bulldog Academy May 4th through May 15:
During the weeks of May 4th and May 11th we will be participating in THE BULLDOG ACADEMY! This is a two-week instructional unit where all our students grade pre-k through 12 will focus their time on learning real life skills. Students will pick three skills each week to focus on. There will be a short survey for the student to complete each week (parents may help complete the survey for younger students). We want our kids to gain an understanding of the importance of real-world skills. There will be no NEW ASSIGNMENTS during our Bulldog Academy for any classes. Students are encouraged to use extra time to complete any assignments that are outstanding during this two-week period.
All assignments are due either through Google Classroom or the drop box located at the elementary school.
May 19 and 20:
These days will be used to return Chromebooks, library books, calculators and any text books for all campuses. We will also return any items your child may have left in their locker, or supplies left in the classroom. (See attached schedule for the date and time for your campus/grade level).
May 22nd Graduation
Join us live at 7:00 pm on the Quitman ISD YouTube Channel to see our 2020 graduates receive their diplomas.
OTHER AWARDS and BANQUETS:
The teachers, staff, and administrators are working tirelessly to provide as much to our students as possible. We will not be able to replicate every single event that was planned for spring. We will do our best to capture digitally as many special memories as possible. If there is a special presentation planned you should receive notice from your child’s principal, teacher, coach, or director. Please follow us on FACEBOOK if you do not already. You can always find events posted on our website at www.quitmanisd.net.
Report Cards will be mailed home the week of May 26th.
You will find a copy of the grading policies initiated during the pandemic included in this correspondence.
Students needing summer school for credit recovery will have the opportunity to complete their courses via online over the summer. Information pertaining to summer school will be mailed separately to students that need credit recovery.
Advancement to Next Grade Level:
Students who have met the criteria for grade level advancement will move to the next grade level. Students who have not met the criteria for grade level advancement will be notified in writing, and by phone by May 15th. Your child’s principal will be available to answer questions once you are notified.
Registration for 2020-2021:
Online registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be available soon. Please check our website frequently. We will also post on Facebook, and utilize our notification system once registration is open.
