Extensive plans have been made to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to keep the school as sanitized and as safe as possible. These plans were shaped locally by surveying our families, staff, and healthcare experts in addition to guidance from Governor Greg Abbott and TEA Commissioner Mike Morath. The 2020-2021 Smart Start Guide outlines our plan to mitigate and respond to COVID-19.
In order to protect the health of your student and others, immunizations are required to come to public school. To learn more about which immunizations are required when, please review the guidelines on immunizations for public school from TDSHS (Texas Department of State Health Services).
As part of overall health and wellness for students, Snyder ISD works with the AIM For Success program. Aim for Success helps young people make healthy choices that will give them freedom to reach their dreams and their goals. This program requires the parent's permission and currently offered in the 6th grade. This program covers:
- Dreams and Goals
- Emotional Hurts
- Sexually Transmitted Diseases
- Failure Rates of Contraception
- Starting Over
- How Far is Too Far?
Nutrition & Hunger
The Snyder ISD Counseling Team & School Nurses work hard to identify children who may be struggling with hunger or have nutritional needs. According to We are Teachers There are millions of kids across the US dealing with food insecurity . Because their basic nutritional needs aren’t being met, these students are more likely to have behavior problems or become high school dropouts. Collaborating with the school and local assistance agencies, our staff works to connect families with the resources they need.
