Are you concerned about Self-screening your child who is regularly sick with allergies? Are you concerned this may impact which learning opportunity that you should choose? If you have questions or concerns about your child(ren) who are frequently sick with allergies or other illnesses please address those concerns with our school nurse. Together we can work out a solution to keeping your child in school as much as possible and avoid sending them home unnecessarily. Email Mrs. Chasity at email@example.com to discuss the individual health concerns of your child starting school during the pandemic.

In response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Nacogdoches County, our district is taking precautions to keep our student athletes and coaches safe during this time. Therefore, CISD has chosen to suspend summer athletic workouts until further notice. This is effective immediately. We apologize for any disruptions in summer plans but safety is our top priority.
