Details about what the 2020-2021 school year will look like at Groesbeck ISD are slowly being made available, as guidance by Commissioner of Education Mike Morath and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is issued regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and district administration collaborates to find the best approach to education in these unprecedented times. The GISD Board of Trustees met for their regular meeting on Monday, July 20, via ZOOM video conference and discussed changes to employee and student handbooks, new buses and plans for the upcoming year.
Groesbeck ISD nursing staff reminds that all students will need to be in compliance with the Department of State Health Services Immunization Guidelines prior to returning to school. The Department of State Health Services, in Mexia, Texas is open every Thursday, by appointment only, to serve any student, who has no insurance; who has Medicaid; and those who are “under-insured” (insurance does not cover immunizations). To make an appointment, call 254-562- 3897.
With still no in-person visits allowed inside Texas assisted living facilities and nursing homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some area homes have raised the bar when it comes to staying in communication with loved ones.
Please note that the Limestone County Senior Centers are closed until further notice for congregate meetings.
