Good afternoon Doss families and community. Below is our revised draft virtual learning schedule.  We found our original schedule was extremely difficult for our many working families to support virtual learning.  While no schedule created will be able to represent wants/needs from our entire community, we feel this change will support the continuation of virtual learning into the fall semester.  We will discuss at today’s parent/principal coffee at 12:00. Please note…

Good afternoon everyone. The board meeting began promptly at 9:00 P.M. last evening and lasted until, roughly, 4:00 A.M. this morning.  I was not brave enough to stay up that late to hear all of the discussion.  There were, however, over 260 phone-in comments that took over three hours to go through.  The vast majority advocated for the delay to school and continuing to pay our hourly employees through this change. …

Doss Elementary

Good morning Doss parents and community. I apologize for the lack of clarity regarding the authority of the local Health Authority.  The following provides a good explanation. Abbott issues school reopening clarity Gov. Greg Abbott moved Friday to try and clear up confusion over Texas’ school reopening policy, asserting that local health authorities can shut down schools if there’s evidence of an outbreak after students return to campus, but not “weeks”…
