As our community navigates the uncertainty of COVID-19, we understand our Frenship families, staff, and community members have questions and concerns about the upcoming school year. While we may not have all the answers – this is a first for all of us – our goal is to provide our parents with as much information as possible so they can make the best decisions for their families when school starts on August 17.
The conditions surrounding the pandemic are continually evolving, and Frenship ISD’s plans to safely return to school will be constantly evaluated to adapt to the continuing changes of COVID-19, especially in Lubbock County. Reopening Frenship will require much collaboration and thoughtful action to ensure the safety of our staff and students remains our top priority. We know parents have tough decisions to make, and we will do our best to support our Frenship families and their needs.
How is Frenship preparing to reopen?
While it is not possible to eliminate all risk of furthering the spread of COVID-19, current science suggests there are many steps we can take to significantly reduce the risk to students, teachers, staff, and families. Frenship is closely monitoring guidance from the State of Texas, TEA, CDC, UIL, pediatricians, and other state and local officials on how to reopen safely.
We are currently in the process of making changes to safety and health protocols, enhanced cleaning procedures, and operational and instructional adjustments. The following document is a comprehensive plan with steps Frenship will take to safely reopen our campuses with minimal disruptions to our students’ regular school experience.
