Read our latest Community Update: Spring Reflection & Looking Ahead to 2020-2021. This update includes our summer operating schedule, as well as reminders and resources for families as we begin the summer break and prepare for the upcoming school year.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Melissa Schools will be functioning remotely through April 24, 2020 and until further notice. Beginning March 23, 2020, our district will transition to remote instructional support for class assignments and activities. We will operate online during virtual office hours throughout Melissa ISD.
Virtual office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
During the remote instruction period, it will be important for parents and guardians to share feedback as plans and processes are rolled out. We know that adjustments will need to be made in order to make remote instruction manageable for all families. We are prepared to continue to improve as we move forward.
If something is not working, please first pause and know that we will find a solution. Then, please contact your child’s teacher or a school administrator with the details of your problem. Staff emails are listed in our Staff Directory. You may also email the district at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your questions and/or concerns.
If your household does not have an internet connection and/or a device, and you have not yet been in touch with the district, please fill out the Family Needs Form or email email@example.com. Delivery of devices will not begin until Tuesday at the earliest.
We understand that many families are overwhelmed and experiencing feelings of uncertainty. We are here for you. Our team understands the importance of being flexible, offering grace, evaluating feedback, and making adjustments to better support our students and families.
The latest information regarding remote instruction will be available on our Remote Instructional Support web page at www.melissaisd.org/remote. Please bookmark this web page for your reference. If the Melissa ISD website becomes unavailable at any time, please try loading it again within 5-10 minutes, as we are dealing with an unprecedented number of concurrent online visitors during this time.
The principal of your child’s school will be communicating to parents/guardians the campus plan for remote instructional support. All plans should be sent out by the end of the day Friday, March 20, 2020.
