With masks in high demand and short supply during the Coronavirus Pandemic, Clint ISD found a solution for the safety and well-being of their employees, right in their own backyard.
The solutions came from within the Clint ISD family, providing handmade masks with the assistance of staff and a Clint HS Alumnus.
Several Clint ISD bus drivers, who also repair the district’s school bus upholstery when damaged, are now on a new mission.
Marisela Lopez, Sonia Munoz, Blanca Hernandez, and Aurelia Flores are using their skills for Clint employees who are preparing and distributing meals, sewing mask after mask for them.
Additionally, Elliot Knoch, a Clint High School Alumnus from the class of 2005, is giving back to the community by sewing much needed masks out of his family business.
District officials say the masks will also be provided to Clint ISD employees, such as maintenance workers and security officers who are keeping the District safe and secure 24/7.
Over 200 of these masks have been distributed to Clint ISD employees with more expected to be ready in the next few weeks.
