Dear Ennis K-12 Families,
As many of you may already know, the Trustees called an emergency school board meeting today, November 13 at 12pm. The purpose of the emergency meeting was to address the staffing levels impacted by Covid-19.
The Ennis School Board of Trustees voted unanimously for grades 6-12 to transition to remote learning starting Monday, November 16th and continuing through November 29th. School is scheduled to resume in person for 6-12 on Monday, November 30th.
Grades K-5 will remain in person at this time. Please know that K-5 may need to transition to remote learning at any time if staffing levels continue to be impacted. We are strongly encouraging families to be prepared for that notification.
This decision for 6-12 remote learning was not an easy decision as we want our kids in school as much as possible. However, with our staffing levels significantly impacted by Covid-19, it was decided that the best option for the entirety of the district’s operations would be to transition to remote learning. Students are expected to attend remote instruction everyday and every class period.
Please note that we will continue school meals for 6-12 during this transition. Standard rates will apply. Information for acquiring school meals is as follows:
**Pickup times are between 10:00-10:30am. Pickup location is just east of the elementary school office doors on the north side of the school**
Monday, November 16th. This will include meals for November 16th and November 17th.
Wednesday, November 18th. This will include meals for November 18th, 19th, and 20th.
Monday, November 23rd. This will include meals for November 23rd and November 24th.
DO NOT COME TO THE SCHOOL TO PICK UP MEALS IF YOU ARE COVID POSITIVE, HAVE A PENDING TEST, OR A CLOSE CONTACT.
If you are interested in meals please contact JH/HS Secretary Sally Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 406-682-4258. We ask that you specify if you are interested in breakfast, lunch, or both. We would like you to inform the school no later than 7:30a.m on November 16th if you are interested in meals.
In closing, thank you for your understanding and patience. Please contact us at the school if you have any questions.
