Fabens ISD releases 2020-21 ‘Back to School’ Options

Officials with the Fabens Independent School District (FISD) released their plan for a return to classes amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are excited to welcome our students and staff back to school for the 2020-2021 school year,” FISD officials shared.  “We are working to ensure a safe and productive environment for all.”

As part of the new plan, parents in FISD will be offered two learning options: in person learning or full time virtual classes.

Parents and guardians will be contacted to select the preferred educational setting for each student.

Officials also shared that the Fabens ISD calendar features intersession weeks, which consist of special days where students have the opportunity to participate in remediation, acceleration, or enrichment activities, similar to summer school offerings in previous years.

These intersession weeks will provide flexibility in case there is a need for a district closure or a delayed start date to the school year, which is currently set for August 10, 2020.

Option 1: Traditional: In-person instruction on campuses with increased disinfection protocols.

Option 2:  Full-time virtual learning.

In addition to the options, school hours have changed to allow for smaller groups of students on buses for social distancing requirements.

Fabens Elementary and O’Donnell Intermediate school will start at 8:00 a.m. and dismiss at 3:00 p.m. Fabens Middle and Fabens High School will start at 8:30 a.m. and dismiss at 3:30 p.m.

District officials add that the that details are subject to change based on guidelines from local, state, federal, and health authorities.
