Employee update on COVID-19 - March 13, 2020
Dear SAISD Staff:

SAISD is committed to making all decisions in the best interest of the health and safety of our students and staff, as well as the larger community. As a precaution, we have made the difficult decision to close schools for students at all SAISD schools through Friday, March 20.
This was not an easy decision for us to make, but we are doing so on the advice of medical experts and following discussions with the Metropolitan Department of Health, the City of San Antonio, Texas Education Agency and our peer school districts in the region.
On Monday, March 16, campuses will continue to be staffed with minimal employees in case families need to call with questions. These staff members are principals and assistant principals, as well as secretaries, family and community engagement specialists, nurses, counselors and custodians. We may not need these employees for the full week; Patti Salzmann will work with the Assistant Superintendents to assess needs as the week progresses.
Additionally, Central Office staff members will report to work on Monday, March 16 – this includes employees who work 230 and 245 days per year.
Please know that next week’s payroll has been completed, so there will be no disruption For other campus-based staff, we are diligently working with the state to ensure employees do not experience a pay disruption as a result of these school closures.
Your assistance will be needed as we prepare to assist families during the extended break and prepare to resume instruction on Monday, March 23.  We are diligently preparing should we need to pursue remote learning.  
As always, please use your best judgement. If you are sick, or have concerns with being immunocompromised, please stay home and call your supervisor to let them know.
Also, if you traveled over spring break, especially to areas that had community spread of COVID-19, we ask that you voluntarily self-report using this form:
A few more items of note:
? The SAT test that is scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, March 14, will continue.
? Athletics, fine arts and other extracurriculars have been suspended beginning today and for the week of March 16.
? Food service will be provided remotely during the closure.  More details will be provided via the website.
We will continue to keep you informed as more decisions are made on how we move forward with this unprecedented situation.
Thank you for your support as we continue to strive to make decisions to best protect the health and wellness of our families and employees.
