Subject: Student Covid Vaccine Tracker

Dear Parents:

We are providing a confidential website, at which parents and guardians may securely upload their child’s COVID-19 vaccine record. Providing this documentation is voluntary but doing so may benefit your child. Students who are known to be vaccinated may not need to quarantine due to an exposure to a positive person, allowing your child to remain learning in school and participating in extracurricular activities.

With your participation, your child’s COVID vaccine information will be safely placed in his or her SAISD electronic medical record and can be retrieved by the school nurse should a copy be needed in the future.

If your child is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and you would like for your child to be vaccinated, please visit the district’s website at www.saisd.net/vaccines for a list of upcoming opportunities, conveniently available right here within our district. Vaccines have been shown to be safe and are a critical tool to help keep children healthy, protect their learning, and provide stability for our families.

We appreciate your partnership in keeping our school a safe and healthy environment for learning.

Sincerely,

Dr. Rose Engelbrecht, Principal

Dear Parents, 

We hope you are enjoying a “Terrific Thursday” across our “79 Square Miles of Excellence.” We  also recognize that you may desire more information regarding the Federal Appellate Court’s  decision to temporarily restore Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order prohibiting mask  mandates in schools.  

In summary, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals restored the governor’s executive order after  Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed an earlier decision by a federal district in Austin that  allowed schools to enact mask mandates to combat the spread of the coronavirus. The case  was originally filed in August by the advocacy group Disability Rights Texas, which argued that  the governor’s order and the Texas Education Agency’s enforcement of the ban put disabled  children at risk and denied them access to public education. An additional briefing and hearing  on the matter will go before the 5th Circuit’s panel of judges at a later date.  

This is how the ruling affects us in SAISD. For now, we are pausing our mask mandate  requirement, just like we did with the vaccine mandate, to remain in compliance with the court’s  decision. We are continuing to highly recommend our students and staff still wear a mask.

On Monday, Dec. 6, during the closed session of our regularly scheduled Board meeting, we will  discuss with our Board of Trustees ways in which the district may move forward.  

The challenges that schools and children face at this moment in history are unlike any other that  we, as a nation, have ever experienced. Our goal, from the very beginning of this pandemic, has  been simple. Your safety and the safety of our children has always been our number one  priority. We are proud to have taken every precaution, from masking and social distancing to  weekly testing and frequent vaccination clinics. These admirable actions have resulted in  extremely low COVID-19 positivity rates, and we will continue with these efforts. We are  incredibly grateful that we have been able to maintain these efforts until vaccines became  readily available for our students and staff. 

It has been said that we should not limit our challenges, but instead challenge our limits. It is  clearly evident if we fully devote ourselves to our dreams, we will conquer every challenge that  comes before us, and we will become the exceptional school district that we aspire to be. On  behalf of our Board of Trustees and the entire SAISD, we truly appreciate you and all that you  do. 

Have an exceptional day. 

"Dr. J"

Estimados padres, 

Esperamos que esté disfrutando de este “maravilloso martes” dentro de nuestras “79 millas  cuadradas de excelencia”. También reconocemos que tal vez desee más información referente a la  decisión del Tribunal Federal de Apelación de restaurar temporalmente la Orden Ejecutiva del  Gobernador Greg Abbott que prohíbe el requisito de mascarillas en las escuelas.  

En resumen, el Tribunal de Apelación del Circuito 5 de EE. UU. restauró la orden ejecutiva después  de que el Fiscal General Ken Paxton apeló una decisión anterior por un distrito federal en Austin  que permitió a las escuelas establecer requisitos de mascarillas a fin de combatir la propagación del  coronavirus. El caso se presentó originalmente en agosto por el grupo de defensa Disability Rights  Texas, el cual sostuvo que la orden del gobernador y la ejecución de la Agencia de Educación de  Texas de la prohibición puso a los niños con discapacidades en riesgo y le negó el acceso a la  educación pública. Se llevarán a cabo una sesión informativa y una audiencia adicionales al  respecto ante el panel de jueces del Circuito 5 en una fecha próxima.  

Así es como nos afecta la decisión en SAISD. Por ahora, vamos a pausar el requisito de usar  mascarillas, así como lo hicimos con el requisito de vacunas, a fin de estar en cumplimiento con la  decisión de la corte. Aún seguiremos recomendando encarecidamente a nuestros estudiantes y personal que usen una mascarilla.

El lunes 6 de dic. durante la sesión cerrada de nuestra reunión del Consejo programada  regularmente, abordaremos con nuestro Consejo Directivo formas en las que el distrito puede seguir  adelante.  

Los desafíos a los que se enfrentan las escuelas y los niños en este momento en la historia son  distintos a los que nosotros, como nación, hemos experimentado. Nuestra meta desde el principio  de esta pandemia ha sido sencilla. Su seguridad y la seguridad de nuestros niños siempre ha sido  nuestra prioridad. Estamos orgullosos de haber tomado cada precaución desde el uso de  mascarillas y el distanciamiento social a las pruebas semanales y las clínicas de vacunación  frecuentes. Estas medidas admirables han resultado en tasas de positividad muy bajas de COVID 19, y continuaremos estos esfuerzos. Estamos muy agradecidos de que hemos podido mantener  estos esfuerzos hasta que las vacunas estuvieron disponibles fácilmente para nuestros estudiantes  y personal. 

Se ha dicho que no deberíamos limitar nuestros desafíos, sino desafiar nuestros límites. Es  evidente que, si nos dedicamos completamente a nuestros sueños, venceremos cada desafío con el  que nos enfrentemos, y llegaremos a ser el distrito escolar excepcional que aspiramos ser. En  nombre de nuestro Consejo Directivo y todo SAISD, realmente lo apreciamos a usted y todo lo que  hace. 

Que tenga un día excepcional.
