Frequently Asked Questions


How long will schools be closed?
 
Seminole ISD will be meeting the educational needs of our students via distance learning for an indefinite time period. At this time, we do not know when campuses will re-open to our students. We will communicate in a punctual manner when and if changes are made.

Why is Seminole ISD closed?
Based on guidance from local, county, state and federal health officials, schools are closed to keep large groups of students and adults safe from the highly communicable Coronavirus (COVID-19). Schools, communities and large venues have been asked to practice social distancing, which reduces the spread of the virus in the population. While children may not face as much danger from the virus, they have the ability to carry the virus to older and more vulnerable residents.
 
What is the Corona Virus?
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has an excellent website with information about the virus and strategies for limiting exposure here.

Will there be online or at-home instruction?
Yes - Seminole ISD teachers and the Instruction Department are developing lessons and activities to provide continuity of instruction while schools are closed. Students should be contacted by their teacher(s) with specifics beginning March 23rd.

What about scheduled school activities and sports? 
All school daytime and evening activities have been canceled while schools are closed. The state University Interscholastic League (UIL) has canceled all sports and practices through Monday, May 4th 2020. (UIL announcement).
