COPPERAS COVE, TX — Clements/Parsons Elementary school is moving to virtual learning starting tomorrow, Monday, Dec. 14 until Thursday, Dec. 17 due to COVID cases.

All of CCISD’s other schools and facilities will continue operations on-site and on their normal schedules.

In a letter to parents, CCISD Superintendent Dr. Joe Burns said in the last few days, they have seen an increase in the number of staff and students testing positive for COVID-19 and another small group of individuals exposed to those who have tested positive.

"As you know, CCISD has developed a plan for this scenario. Therefore, Clements/Parsons Elementary students will transition to At Home Learning from December 14 -17, 2020," Burns said. "This decision has been made in order to protect both our students and staff from further exposure risk."

In order to be counted present for attendance and credit purposes, students are required to log in daily to Schoology to access their assignments.

During this time of At Home Learning, CCISD will continue to provide a breakfast and lunch at no charge through a grab-and-go meal service at the campus. On Monday, December 14 only, breakfast may be picked up from 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. Each day, Dec. 14-17, lunch with breakfast for the following day is available for pick up between 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
