Cumby ISD superintendent’s office shortly after noon Thursday announced that a decision has been made to close school Friday, “due to a large percentage of staff and student population being out due to illness.”

Cumby ISD will be closed tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 14, 2022. School was already scheduled to be closed Monday, Jan. 17, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Classes are scheduled to resume as usual on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022.

During the 2 days that the school will be closed, district facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, the superintendent’s office reported.

That also means the school’s COVID testing facility, which is typically open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the nurses office, will also be closed Jan. 14-17, 2022. Families of students who begin experiencing symptoms of potential COVID can reach out to the school nurse, who can arrange testing. The nurse can be reached at any time at 903-243-7077 for guidance or assistance in scheduling a COVID test, school administrators reported.

This will mark at least the second time the district COVID testing site has closed since school resumed earlier this month. The site was closed for part of the day Jan. 11 due to a staffing shortage. The district was able to reopen the next morning, however.
