STAY UP-TO-DATE - March 20, 2020
Everyone have a wonderful weekend. Look for the silver-lining and you will find it.
The City and County of Haskell have issued local guidance and clarification on Governor Greg Abbot's statement yesterday.

Statement from the Mayor of Haskell can be found here.
Statement from the County Judge can be found here.
It was announced that on Monday, March 23rd, teachers will have packets available for all students. You can drive up in front of the elementary school and receive these from 7:30 to 1:30. Teachers will have papers, copies, textbooks, etc. Work will be picked up and returned on Mondays.

Teachers are going through a tremendous amount of work to accommodate everyone to the best of their ability. This has never been done before and it is unprecedented. Please be as diligent as you can in making sure work is picked up, completed by students and returned. If you have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to your teachers. They are here to help!
