Lamar CISD to Resume Normal Operations June 1, 2021

Apr 28, 2021 | Community Relations

Lamar CISD Community,

Thank you for your patience and flexibility throughout the 2020-2021 school year.

Despite countless challenges for our staff, students and families, we’re so proud of everything we accomplished this year. Working together, we’ve been able to safely operate our campuses all year while meeting the needs of our students both on-campus and virtually.

As residents of Fort Bend County, we are fortunate to have improving COVID-19 conditions and readily available vaccines for those who are interested.

With the school year coming to an end and all state requirements being met, Lamar CISD will return to normal operations on June 1, 2021.

Beginning in June, all COVID-19 protocols will end and face coverings will be optional. This includes 2021 summer school, summer athletic camps and any other school-related activities. However, we will remain vigilant with many of the cleaning and disinfecting procedures put in place for this school year.

Virtual learning—as we have experienced it this year—will also end with the completion of the 2020-2021 school year. With the upcoming school year four months away, we are still determining what virtual learning options may be available. Based on current law, the District would not receive state funding for a virtual education option unless the Texas Education Agency extends the current waiver or legislation passes this session to provide state funding to school districts to offer a virtual education option.

Considering this uncertainty and the improving Fort Bend County COVID-19 conditions, we are not planning to offer a Pre-K – 12 virtual learning option next school year. However, we do believe unique virtual learning options may be possible for a limited number of students who have exhibited success online.

We will provide an update to the Lamar CISD community regarding what unique virtual learning options may be available before the end of the school year.  

Again, thank you for your continued support this year and we look forward to welcoming all of our students back to campus for the 2021-2022 school year.
