Dear KISD Families:In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order dated 4/17/2020, Kountze ISD will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The Texas Education Agency issued this statement in response to the Governor’s order: “Following on Governor Abbott’s Executive Order on schools issued this afternoon, it is important to note that while the Governor’s decision continues the closure of school buildings for in-person classroom attendance for the duration of the 2019-20 school year, it in no way ends at-home instructional support for Texas’s millions of students.”We will continue our Flexible Education Program until the end of the year. Teachers will continue to provide educational continuity for all students. We will be providing updates as we get them. Please continue to monitor our social media accounts.Teachers and staff at Kountze ISD are heartbroken that we will not see your children this year. We assure you that we will do our best to support their remote education. We would also like to thank you for your hard work and support during these difficult times. Please let them know that we miss them and look forward to the day when our school and community can return to normal.
