We hope everyone is safe and well this Tuesday! To help support your online learning needs, the Ingleside High School parking lot by the softball field now has WiFi that should support any device.
Good morning GJM Families! Thanks to everyone who came out last week to pick up your student's instructional materials to support remote learning! The GJM building is now closed. The materials you received include everything you need for remote learning, so GJM will NOT need another pickup time. Each Monday through Rermind 101 or email your child's teacher will send you new assignments using the materials you already have, so no need to leave the house! We are so very thankful for all of the support our families have shown our staff, and we wish you a safe and healthy first full week of remote learning!
Happy Friday GJM family! Coach Muniz and Coach Gonzales are really missing our students! We hope you are all staying physically active and healthy during this time away from school. Below are a few links to activities you can do while you are at home. Keep an eye out for new PE activities in your teachers weekly lessons. In the meantime, stay healthy, eat nutritious foods, be active, drink water, and get rest! Can’t wait to see you all back at school! Love Coach Muniz and Coach Gonzales :) GoNoodle® Gets kids up and moving to fun, engaging content and games. Every dance party, yoga session, mindfulness activity, and game session is an opportunity for kids to wake up their bodies, engage their minds, and be their best. https://family.gonoodle.com/ Mind and Body Calendar The calendars encourage students to stay physically active while working on aspects of mental wellness, too.

Pick five different exercises to complete, once you have done all five repeat them for three rounds. Be sure to start with a warm-up to get your muscles ready for movement and end with a cool down and stretches to avoid soreness. Once you’re done, think about all the activities you did. Circle the activities you enjoyed and put a star by the activities that were challenging. Be sure to try all the activities before repeating.

Dear Ingleside ISD Community, Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Ingleside ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Monday, April 13th in an effort to support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Our health officials report that cases are continuing to spread in the state, and even though we do not have any confirmed cases in our county, the testing process has increased and expectations are that positive results in our county seem likely. Suspending operations for this length of time will allow us to determine, in coordination with local health officials, whether the virus is continuing to have community spread or whether it has been contained. We are coordinating with other school districts in the county and will use the week of April 6th to make any decisions on whether there is a need to extend the suspension further. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. We want to reiterate a request to our broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness: Don’t shake hands Wash your hands regularly Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded places and maintaining 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length) If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms. Students who have traveled should plan to stay home for two weeks after arriving home. Please contact your campus to let them know. If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice. Keep your child at home, if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold. Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care. This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, will assess conditions throughout the week, and will provide the next update by April 8th via our website and email. Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in Ingleside ISD stay safe and healthy. Free Breakfast and lunch will be available from 11:00 A.M -1:00 P.M. throughout our school closure for all students to pick up at the Ingleside Primary School. We have also created a Wi-Fi hotspot at IPS parking lot for those students using their district chromebooks who do not have Wi-Fi access at their home. Troy Mircovich Superintendent, Ingleside ISD
Mrs. Morales misses you all and hopes you are staying healthy! Below is a link to some fun music activities you can do at home with your family. For all students PK-6, this online music website is free for one month! Username: snow Password: 2020 Scroll down to games and select any interactive activity. https://musicplayonline.com/games/
In order to support our working parents we will be adding a 7-9 a.m. time slot to get instructional materials here at GJM, so times will be Wednesday-Friday, 7:00-11:00 a.m.,1:00-3:00 p.m. and 5:00-6:30 p.m. If none of those days or times works for you, please get in touch with your child's teacher via email and we will work out a plan with you!
March 13, 2020 Ingleside ISD has been closely following the media reports and information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Texas Department of Health Services, Texas Education Agency, and local entities about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Out of precaution for the ongoing concern with coronavirus (COVID-19), Ingleside ISD will be extending Spring Break through March 16-20 for our students as we assess the situation in our community. This decision was not made lightly, and we understand the change may cause an inconvenience for some families. ALL central office personnel, administrators (including directors and assistant principals), maintenance and custodial staff are required to report to work Monday, March 16, as normal. ALL teachers and instructional staff are asked to remain in the local area and anticipate further direction from supervisors. While our students and staff have been off for spring break this past week, our maintenance and custodial staff have been conducting intensive cleaning of the schools. This is our common practice during breaks from school, but they have definitely enhanced this cleaning during this particular spring break. Ingleside ISD is asking for any students or staff who traveled to China, Iran, specific European countries (see list), or South Korea over Spring Break (or any additional countries added to the CDC Level 3 list) to follow CDC guidance and stay home for 14 days after you return from your travel. Ingleside ISD continues to monitor the CDC’s List. Updates will be emailed to parents and guardians via the email address listed on file in Skyward Family Access. Individuals may update their email address by logging into Skyward. Updates will also be provided at www.inglesideisd.org or through its Facebook page. Ingleside ISD leadership and the Board of Trustees will continue to remain in constant communication with state and local health officials and the Texas Education Agency. The District would like to thank our parents, staff, and community members for their patience and understanding during this time. Please continue to care for yourself, family, and those around you and adhere to the preventative measures as recommended by public health officials, such as limiting interaction and practicing social distancing. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, there are simple steps everyone can take to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses like COVID-19: • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. • Stay home when you are sick. • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Sincerely, Troy Mircovich, Superintendent Ingleside ISD Ingleside, Texas 78362 · P.O. Box 640· 2664 San Angelo · Phone (361) 776-7631 · Fax (361) 776-0267
