As you receive this information, we hope that everyone is staying positive and safe. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, we have put forth some guidelines and procedures to help campuses continue to operate and close activities at the student activity level. We are all going through some stressful times and doing our part to stay safe right now, so our main priority is to make things as easy as possible when it comes to student activities. So with that in mind, signatures are not mandatory at this point but please make sure transactions are in compliance with the Campus and Student Activity Funds Manual.
United ISD’s closure will be extended to the end of the academic year, initially scheduled for May 28, 2020, as per Texas Governor Gregg Abbott’s Executive Order. Students and parents should continue to follow through with the assignments and instructional materials provided on the remote online instructional program.
