Good evening Pampa families,
Week 2 of @HomeLearning is off to a great start. We are improving how we deliver learning opportunities to our students every day. We also want to be sure to help the parents and caregivers at home during this time. In case you may not have seen it, there are some great tips and tricks for @HomeLearning on our website. Go to our website and once you are on the PISD@HomeLearning site, there is a button for Family Resources. Or, you can just click HERE to go straight to the site. Let us know what other questions you have or how we can continue to support your @HomeLearning with your student. Email us at email@example.com
Thanks again for sharing your #moments with us on social media. The challenge for Monday was to share your pet or favorite animal with us. We have some pretty friendly pets in Pampa! Tomorrow’s challenge is a New Skill! This one should be interesting for sure. I can’t wait to see all of the new skills our students have acquired during this COVID-19 quarantine, “stay home” time. Please continue to share these #moments with us. We enjoy seeing our students and their families together! We miss you and can’t wait to hear from you each day. Don’t forget to tag us when you post with Pampa Independent School District and @PampaISD.
As you know, our distribution and technology services changed just a bit today. We reduced our hours in an effort to reduce the risk of exposure and spreading the virus. Things seem to be going very well. If you have any problems, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call 11-1pm M-F at 669-4700.
Governor Abbott held a press conference today at 2:15 pm. If you were not able to view it, he mentioned the work that his offices and various other health and emergency offices are doing to help with distributing personal protective equipment (PPE). He also gave good news that the experts believe the social distancing and stay-at-home orders are having a positive impact on slowing the spread of the virus. That is good news. Gov. Abbott did emphasize the importance of continuing our efforts and to stay home.
He did not, however, mention any new information about school closures. Therefore, for now, Pampa ISD will continue to follow the previous declaration and our campuses will remain closed until May 4th. As we get closer to that time, we will reevaluate the state and local conditions and will inform our students, parents, and community of any updates. Additionally, all events, assemblies, banquets, competitions, and other gatherings have been canceled or postponed. We have teams of people working on non-traditional options to consider. We will update you on these options in the coming weeks.
Hang in there Pampa! We know the sacrifices we are making today will help prevent the spread of the virus. Believe in the hope that our efforts are truly making a difference and we may be saving lives each time we choose to stay home and stay healthy! We continue to pray for those who have confirmed cases and we appreciate their sacrifice of staying home so others can stay healthy. Our community makes me #PampaProud!
Dr. Tanya Larkin, Superintendent
