Dear Godley ISD family,
First and foremost, the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and community is always our number one priority. As you may have heard, Governor Abbott has declared a state of emergency for the state of Texas in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). After consulting with local health officials and following many conversations with other superintendents about the impact of the COVID-19, Godley ISD campuses including Cub Club will be closed at least one week after Spring Break and plan to resume normal operations on March 30th.
Additionally, the District will be working on a comprehensive plan to ensure that students have access to meals, as needed, and that learning will continue virtually at home. Once these plans are finalized, it will be communicated to all parents, including information about the delivery of educational instruction during this extended closure of buildings.
Athletics, fine arts activities, clubs and organizations, and all other gatherings will be postponed during this closure until further notice, as well. Essential personnel will remain on duty with a plan to work remotely as much as possible.
We understand that there will still be opportunities for community members to participate in social gatherings based on their own cognizance, but we are taking precautions to keep our district safe based on information provided by health officials and encourage our community to practice social distancing.
All facilities, including all outside facility reservations, will be closed during Spring Break, this extended closure, and until further notice. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, but again, limiting social exposure is the best-known way, thus far, to slow the rise of COVID-19 cases.
If you or a household member plan to travel, or have recently traveled, internationally and/or outside of the DFW area, we respectfully ask that you fill out our GISD Travel Notice form.
We will continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS), and highly advise our families to do so as well.
Godley ISD will communicate via our normal channels. Please regularly check our website and social media accounts for updates on the situation, including ways we can further be of help to you.
Please keep in mind that decisions regarding the health and safety of our students and faculty are not made lightly and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this very fluid situation.
