Trustees Pass Resolution Approving Wage Payments For SSISD Employees During Emergency Closure
Sulphur Springs Independent School District Board of Trustees Wednesday evening made an important decision for their employees and announced a decision regarding regular school operations as well.
The school board “approved a resolution for wage payments for SSISD employees during emergency school closing for the period of closure associated with the District’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Following the meeting, SSISD officials reported the district will also “extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April, 10 in an effort to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. We are coordinating with other school districts in the county and will announce any decisions on whether there is a need to extend suspension further by April 9.”
Earlier today, SSISD assured that “students will not have to retake classes or lose any credit during the time we are out of school. Our staff is currently working on solutions for teachers and students to stay in contact and work while we are away from our campuses. We plan on rolling out our academic plan on Monday.”
Additional information will be provided as it become available regarding that plan, school officials reported.
Those who have questions related to the impact of COVID-19 to the SSISD community may submit them online to school staff through the link on their website.
