GISD adapts to COVID-19 challenges, measures taken

Groesbeck ISD, like many schools in the area and state, has opted to extend Spring Break and cancel classes on all campuses through March 27 in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Prior to the regularly scheduled School Board Meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 16, the Board gathered for an emergency meeting to discuss district plans for “a new normal” through this pandemic. Though no cases of Coronavirus have been confirmed in Limestone County at the time of press, GISD Superintendent Dr. James Cowley explained that this decision was reached after close communication with many local, area and state leaders and as more information about the risk of COVID-19 becomes available.
