Hornet Return to School Plan
Hornet Return to School Plan for 2021-2022 SY
Huntsville ISD has prepared for all scenarios and plans to return to school this 2021-2022 school year with as close to normal pre-COVID operations as possible under full capacity with traditional in-person instruction.
Due to the Texas Education Agency not extending funding to school districts to continue providing virtual educational options, Huntsville ISD is NOT currently planning to offer a Remote Learning option. We are still working in direct contact with the Walker County Health Authorities and the Texas Department of State Health Services and we continue to monitor COVID-19 and its impact on Walker County and the surrounding area. We will certainly reconsider our position on remote learning should the funding situation change or should we receive direction from the authorities to do so.
We will continue with some of the COVID-19 safety precautions, which include extra cleaning and disinfecting of our buildings and buses, encouraging the frequent use of hand washing and hand sanitizer, and social distancing where practical. These efforts proved extremely effective in fighting the spread of COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 school year. Wearing face masks will be optional for students and staff at this time but we do highly recommend them for those who have not yet been fully vaccinated.
The most current version of the Hornet Return to School Plan for 2021-2022 is posted below to include any Updates made during the school year for necessary revisions.
**Please Note: The Plan is always subject to change as needed or required for the health and safety of all students, staff and the community.
