SAN ANGELO, Texas — The San Angelo Independent School District said Wednesday it will close high school campuses, PAYS and Carver Learning Center Friday because of staffing shortages.
The district said the closures are because of staffing considerations including allocation of limited substitutes.
Central and Lake View high schools (including Central on Oakes), PAYS and Carver will be closed Friday, Jan. 14.
In-person classes will resume Tuesday, Jan. 18.
High school teachers and staff will continue to report to campuses for work and be available to support students through online support.
The district said this update does not impact elementary or middle school students who will continue to have in-person instruction as regularly scheduled.
Additional details for Friday, Jan. 14 for high school students include:
- Attendance will not be recorded, however, we encourage our students to log into Schoology to complete any outstanding assignments and enrichment activities or attend scheduled virtual tutoring with your teacher via Zoom if needed.
- Extracurricular activities and athletic schedules will be communicated by coaches and sponsors.
This one-day high school closure will enable SAISD to allocate its personnel resources where they are most needed at this time in elementary and middle schools. Friday is consistently the most challenging day for staffing purposes, the release said.
"Student and staff health and safety remain our top priority. We continue to evaluate and consult with local health officials and the Center for Disease Control each week to assess current conditions. SAISD is utilizing protocols at all campuses and facilities to maximize safety," the release said.
