Natalia ISD looks for parent input for upcoming school year

Natalia ISD is seeking survey responses from parents and guardians of students to help the district finalize its plans for the 2020-2021 school year amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The survey, which is available on the district website at, outlines plans for social distancing and sanitization that are already in place.

Student groups will be restricted to follow the current guidelines for gatherings of multiple people in a building, which is currently 45 square feet per person and seats six feet apart.

Students will be screened for fevers prior to boarding a bus or entering a district building, and those who have fevers must return home. Students who develop symptoms while at school will be isolated and must be picked up.

The survey also outlined three different scenarios lining out how school could resume, ranging from normal in-person instruction, to a rotational hybrid that would see students split into groups to alternate between in-person and distance learning, to purely distance learning.

Parents and guardians who take the survey are asked to answer how they expect their child to attend classes, and whether they will ride a bus to and from school.
