Students at Dallas ISD schools were sent home Thursday with a letter informing parents how the district is preparing to use at-home learning to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

The letter from Superintendent Michael Hinojosa stated that while there are no reported cases of the coronavirus in Dallas ISD, district officials will continue to work in partnership with Dallas County Health and Human Services.

The district has a contingency plan for at-home learning if classes are canceled after spring break, according to the letter.

“Our goal is to keep our doors open as long as possible to support students, staff and families,” the letter states.

Beginning March 19, students and parents can check the district’s coronavirus website, www.dallasisd.org/COVID19, for updates on possible school closures.
