2020-21 Groesbeck ISD
Return to School Safety Plan

Groesbeck ISD has created the Return to School Safety Plan to guide the return to in-person instruction. School begins August 12, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone! We do recognize that many questions still exist, and we are working to provide answers. Your child's teacher and campus principal will have the most up-to-date and specific information for your student.

Groesbeck ISD follows the guidance and expertise of national and local health officials to help protect our students and staff from all communicable diseases. The district is aware that The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness (COVID-19) caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. Families are encouraged to visit the CDC website for more information and travel guidance regarding the Coronavirus.

Changes to the public health situation over the course of the school year may necessitate changes to the 2020-21 Groesbeck ISD Return to School Safety Plan.
