Message About Aug. 17 Power and Internet Outages

  • 8-17-20 

    Dear CISD Families, 

    We understand that many of our families are without power and internet this morning due to last night’s storms. In addition, many of our teachers are also experiencing power and internet outages, and some of our schools and buildings are without phone and internet services.  We want to assure you that we know this will impact our students' engagement with learning today, the first day of school. Our teachers are aware of the situation and will work with those affected by these issues. We know this is a frustrating situation, especially on the first day of school. We are committed to working with our families when issues like today’s arise.

    We also wanted to make you aware that three of our schools — Cottonwood Creek Elementary, Town Center Elementary and Wilson Elementary — as well as our Administration Building and other district facilities also are experiencing internet and phone outages.  We are working to resolve these issues as soon as we can. 

    Though many of our students may not be able to login this morning, we do hope that at some point, as these power and internet issues are resolved, they will be able to login to engage with their teachers today. 

    We expect that this may be the first of many unexpected situations that will arise during this school year.  By working together with patience, grace and understanding, we can tackle whatever comes to work to educate our children. 

    Thank you for your support. 

    CISD Administration
