Dear SST Family,
This is a challenging time for all of us. We receive information daily that impacts plans and decisions. Based on the most current information and stay at home orders, the School of Science and Technology is extending distance learning for all SST campuses in Corpus Christi and San Antonio through Friday, April 24. No decision has been made to extend distance learning for SST Houston campuses beyond April 10. A decision for Houston campuses will be made on April 6, as shared in an earlier message, or sooner. The curbside meal program will continue as it is. Though we are hopeful that SST campuses can reopen before the end of the school year, SST is prepared to do whatever is necessary for as long as necessary to support each of you.
While this has been a difficult time, I am proud of the response of our SST family. SST campus leadership, teachers and staff have adapted quickly to support students and their families. Parents have been equally responsive, and I appreciate each parent who has made the adjustments and provided the support their children need to continue learning. Together we can make this a productive time for our children, and through our example, we can demonstrate the importance of working together as a community.
Principals and teachers are working diligently to provide the support children and families need. Teachers and instructional specialists remain committed to providing high-quality, engaging instruction through online platforms. Please communicate directly with them if you have concerns or questions.
Our central office team is in daily contact with health and educational institutions at local, state and national levels that support educational leadership in making the best decisions possible. We will continue to update you on any developments through our websites, social media, Parent Square and other methods.
Our SST family is strong and innovative, and I commend each of you for all you are doing in service to children and families. The safety and well-being of our SST family is the priority in all our decisions during these fluid and rapidly changing time
