Lubbock ISD extends spring break by one week for students

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

During a special teleconference meeting of the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees Superintendent Kathy Rollo made the decision to extend spring break for students by one week. 

Dr. Rollo stated during the meeting staff is to report on Monday to train on the best practices for distance learning.  The district needs time to make clear expectations on requirements for staff working from home. 

The district will announce if it plans to transition to online learning for students and staff on Wednesday, March 25. 

If the district decides to allow staff to work from home employees will get paid. If staff needs to stay home because of increased vulnerability to COVID-19, employees must make arrangements. 

Due to Spring Break travel, Lubbock ISD will determine who has been where and who needs to be self-quarantined. Students and staff are advised not to travel more than 200 miles from Lubbock County.

The district is also considering 11 bus routes to deliver food to kids during the break. 

Lubbock ISD plans to transition to online classes the week after the extended spring break. Local internet providers are offering deals for those without internet access, but will need to set up service.

As for special education services, teachers will be in touch with families daily and working with them to transition to online learning system. Those who need more services will be made up later.
