Dear Sinton ISD Staff and Parents:
Four staff members at Sinton High School who have tested positive for COVID-19, plus, we also have four other high school staff members who are considered close contacts. Due to a lack of substitute teachers available at this time and the number of high school staff who will be in quarantine for the next 7-10 days, Sinton High School will move to REMOTE instruction only until Tuesday, January 19. All other campuses will continue with on-campus, face to face instruction.
There is no evidence of person to person spread on the campus and our COVID-19 numbers remain relatively low percentage-wise. However, this decision is solely based on a lack of available staff and subs for on-campus, face to face instruction to continue at Sinton High School. Extra-curricular activities will continue as normal and coaches and/or directors will be in touch about schedules.
Curbside breakfast and lunch, which is packaged together, will be available to pick up at Sinton Elementary between the hours of 10:00am and 12:30pm. A parent or the high school student may pick up the meal by providing the student name and ID number.
We will continue to offer COVID-19 testing by appointment only from 3:15-5:00pm Monday through Friday, so any student or staff member with symptoms may get on our website and sign up for a testing appointment.
Once again, SINTON HIGH SCHOOL ONLY will move to remote instruction starting Monday, January 11 and high school students will return on Tuesday, January 19.
Dr. Chad Jones
