Coyote Pride

            Change is inevitable. We transitioned to a 4 day school week this year, with Mondays off. We’ve transition from asynchronous learning last spring, to all students returning for face-to-face instruction as the new school year began, back to asynchronous learning, and back to face-to-face instruction again. Face-to-face instruction with the teacher and social interaction in the classroom is the preferred method of instruction for educating our students. What we have all learned during this pandemic is the ability to adapt to change. The only thing constant this year will be change. Students and staff will complete the week ending November 20th, then have a week off for Thanksgiving, then 3 more weeks of school until Christmas break and the end of the fall semester. Time flies!

All three school districts in San Saba County receive COVID case updates from Marsha Hardy, Emergency Management Coordinator for San Saba County. We currently have 37 active cases in San Saba County. With each update to schools, Marsha Hardy includes this message: “Simply: wash your hands, wear your mask, pay attention to your surroundings and, mostly, be kind!” We all need to hear kind words in these stressful times!
