COVID-19 At-Home Instruction

White Oak ISD is continuing to diligently work on the logistics of COVID-19 and the ever-changing landscape and evolving issues of the pandemic. We are continuing to receive guidance from TEA, Governor Abbott, Department of State Health Services officials, and other governing entities. Please note that the guidelines we receive change frequently. We continue to review recommendations from the CDC, etc., and have gathered input from parents/guardians and staff via surveys.

While the information below is not an exhaustive list of efforts or all of the information that will be forthcoming as the pandemic situation evolves, we want to share the following as a starting point as we work to get through these challenging times:
