Venus ISD’s goal is to provide our students with the highest quality education possible. Due to the most recent faculty and staff shortages, our campuses are facing significant challenges effectively covering classes. While we have more subs than ever before, it is impossible to keep pace with the demand. These shortages are due to quarantines related to COVID-19, as well as non-COVID illnesses. This has made achieving our goal quite a challenge. It has been a daily struggle to cover classes, as our need for substitute teachers greatly outpaces their availability.
For these reasons, it is in the best interest of our students to not hold classes the week beginning Monday, November 16, 2020. This will be non-school days for students and work days for staff members. Also, beginning Monday November 30, we will transition all students to Connected (online) Learning for Nov 30 to Dec 4th. These measures allow us to provide the best quality of instruction possible until our staff members are able to return to campus. It also helps to ensure that students who may have traveled over Thanksgiving are COVID-free before they come back on December 7.
If your family needs a WiFi Hotspot, email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment to pick one up. We will send out additional details as they become available. Please send all questions to email@example.com
