    Dear CISD Families,

    The past several weeks have been extremely challenging for our students, families and staff. With our first day of school rapidly approaching, now is the time to come together as a community, who may disagree on some points, but ultimately who is united in a common goal of taking care of and educating our children. So, rather than write out my message to you this week, I want to share this video message from me about where we are right now with Back to School in CISD.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Brad Hunt
