As a district, New Frontiers Public Schools remains committed to providing an outstanding education in a safe and secure learning environment. Our children are always at the heart of our decisions especially as we manage the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We continue to actively monitor developments in conjunction with local and state public health officials and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
With the declaration of a public health emergency by the City of San Antonio regarding social distancing for groups larger than 500 and the alert from the World Health Organization designating COVID-19 as a pandemic, we understand that proactive measures are superior to reactive measures in terms of controlling the number of new cases.
Therefore, because of the rapidly evolving nature of this situation and out of an abundance of caution, New Frontiers Public Schools is joining other San Antonio area schools to close the week of March 16 – 20 to help prevent exposure to students, staff and the community. This update applies to both the Frank L. Madla Accelerated Collegiate Academy and the Frank L. Madla Early College High School.
Additionally, all extracurricular activities are suspended while we are closed.
The health and safety of your child is of the utmost importance. Please continue to adhere to the preventative measures as recommended by public health officials, such as:
- Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom and before preparing or consuming food. Using soap and hot water, wash for about 20 seconds.
- Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air.
- Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
- Limit interaction and practicing social distancing.
The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District has opened a COVID-19 hotline for residents to ask questions about the virus. The hotline is available in English and Spanish.
- For COVID-19 questions call 210-207-5779
- The hotline is open Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
We will provide additional updates to our community via social media and email as we have them. Thank you for your support and patience as we work
together to deliver a safe environment for all involved.
