    REOPENING DENVER CITY ISD

    We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your student(s) on August 17 and have been making preparations to ensure the health and safety of your student(s). Despite extensive challenges, DCISD will continue to provide excellent instruction to our students in our classrooms face to face and virtually.

     As our community navigates the uncertainty of COVID-19, we understand our Denver City ISD families, staff, and community members have questions and concerns about the upcoming school year. While we may not have all the answers – this is a first for all of us – our goal is to provide our parents with as much information as possible so they can make the best decisions for their families when school starts on August 17.  

    How is Denver City ISD preparing to reopen? 

    While it is not possible to eliminate all risk of furthering the spread of COVID-19, current science suggests there are many steps we can take to significantly reduce the risk to students, teachers, staff, and families. Denver City is closely monitoring guidance from the State of Texas, TEA, CDC, UIL, pediatricians, and other state and local officials on how to reopen safely.

    We are currently in the process of making changes to safety and health protocols, enhanced cleaning procedures, and operational and instructional adjustments. The following document is a comprehensive plan with steps Denver City ISD will take to safely reopen our campuses with minimal disruptions to our students’ regular school experience.

     In order to meet the needs of our students, this fall Denver City ISD is planning for two different models of instruction. Plans will be flexible to accommodate potential changes with the COVID-19 situation as these guidelines may need to be modified. It is our priority to keep families informed and provide you with the most up-to-date information.

     Denver City ISD will be providing parents the opportunity to choose one of two instructional models. Although we are offering both Face-to-Face Instruction and Virtual Instruction, DCISD recommends Face-to-Face learning as the best overall method for student success.
