Some of you have expressed concerns about our schools staying open after reading or hearing about the San Antonio Metro Health’s directive advising against in-person education. Please know that we take the safety of our students and staff very seriously. Since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, Lackland ISD has had one COVID case resulting in the quarantine of five students. We believe that our campuses are safe for students and we believe we have precautions in place to help keep our students and staff safe. We cannot of course make any guarantees, but we do believe that children need to be in school and that school is the safest place for them to be during the day.
As a parent, you have every right to keep your child(ren) home and have them participate in remote learning and we will always support your right to do so. However, the Texas Education Agency has mandated that we offer in-person education to everyone who request it. Therefore, Lackland ISD will continue to offer in-person education unless we are otherwise mandated by the Texas Education Agency or the Governor of Texas to close our doors.
Please stay safe!
