Due to the rising number of COVID-related absences and a shortage of substitute teachers, Mansfield ISD has decided to temporarily close six elementary schools: Janet Brockett, Louise Cabaniss, Judy Miller, Martha Reid, Tarver Rendon and Roberta Tipps. These campuses will be closed from Thursday, Jan. 13, through Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 17.
Day-to-day operations at those campuses are strained, and it is difficult to sustain a productive learning environment while continuing to ensure the health and well being of our students and staff.
MISD’s custodial staff will implement our COVID-19 deep cleaning protocol prior to students and staff returning Tuesday, Jan. 18.
