  • Dear Carrizo Springs CISD Family,

    I would like to thank the parents, teachers and staff for reaching out to us regarding the Board of Trustee’s decision to mandate the use of masks by students, staff and all in-door extra-curricular activities.   

    We have a diverse district with passionate parents. Although it’s rare that we may seem that we are divided at times, I know that we advocate for our students.  We all share the same passion and desire to make the best decisions for our students. We all want to protect both the safety of students and the rights of families to make health and education decisions that work with the varied array of individual and collective needs in our community. 

    As much as I believe that vaccinations plus masks are the only two ways out of this pandemic, it is impossible to ignore the reality we are facing with the Delta Variant of COVID.  By most measures, we’re in a worse situation now than we were at the start of last school year.  By other measures, such as the number of available hospital beds and the number of children affected by the disease, we are in a worse situation now than at any other time during the pandemic, including the winter 2020 spike.

    As we continue to refine and adjust our safety protocols, we will do everything we can to make decisions that are the most protective of children, while having the least possible restrictive or disruptive effects.   

    We have fewer options to offer you than we had last year, but we will get through this.  I am still hopeful that the obstacles at the start of this school year will only last a matter of weeks rather than months.  We will take it day by day and I will keep you abreast on any and all updates.

    Respectfully yours,

    Dr. Jose A. Cervantes

    Superintendent of Schools
