Update to COVID-19

posted Apr 21, 2020, 2:44 PM by Joel Parker

April 21, 2020,

To All Slocum ISD Students, Parents, and Guardians,

As everyone has heard, Governor Greg Abbott has extended school closures in Texas for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  We had certainly hoped that conditions would allow us to return to school in May, but I certainly understand his decision in trying to protect our students, employees, and communities as well as trying to slow down the spread of COVID-19.  We will diligently continue our home-based learning program to give our students all that we can for the remainder of the scheduled school year.

Parents/Guardians, thank you so much for what you have done so far to make this work.  We realize this is not ideal or easy.  If you need additional information or resources please do not hesitate to reach out to teachers or campus principals.  We are here for you.

Students, keep working hard to complete your work and spend some extra time reading some good books or doing some interesting research.  Also, make sure you are getting outside and getting plenty of exercise.  Summer will be here before you know it.

In addition, since the spread of COVID-19 in Anderson County has increased, we will be changing up meal deliveries beginning next week to lessen the amount of exposure from preparation and deliveries.  Beginning Tuesday, April 28, we will be delivering food two days per week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.  (Tuesday’s delivery will contain food for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Friday’s delivery will contain food for Friday and Monday.)  If you would like more information about school meals, please contact Food Service Director Tracy Mersiovsky at or at (903) 478-3624.  

Together, we will get through this.  We are all in this together.


Cliff Lasiter, Superintendent
