Melissa Schools will continue operating remotely through the last day of school on May 28, 2020 and until further notice. Please visit the Remote Instruction website for the latest updates, campus plans, online resources, and frequently asked questions and answers.
Out of precaution and due to increasing concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), Melissa ISD will remain closed from Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20 for an extended Spring Break. All scheduled events and activities for the week of March 16 are also canceled.
The district recognizes that the Melissa High School Prom is scheduled for Saturday, March 21. As we continue to monitor and evaluate the situation, we will make a decision regarding Prom as we get further into next week.
Due to the March 11, 2020 announcement by the World Health Organization that the outbreak of the new coronavirus has been declared a pandemic, updated announcements by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and information from medical professionals and state and federal health officials, this action is being taken in an attempt to minimize health and safety risks to the Melissa ISD community.
While there are currently no known cases of COVID-19 in Melissa, this decision is being made in coordination with surrounding school districts for the well-being of the broader community.
District officials will continue to communicate with local and state health officials throughout next week, and will provide updates to our community as necessary. We appreciate you working with us as we strive to do what is in the best interest of our students and staff. Thank you for your ongoing support.
In addition, please partner with us in routinely reinforcing the following preventative practices in your household, as recommended by the CDC:
