“At this point in the game we’re looking at confirmed cases..Fortunately for us as you know we don’t have any confirmed cases in hidalgo or surrounding counties.But as time goes by we’ll see, ive there are some confirmed cases then that’s going to impact the timelines.”
The superintendent added that the district will continue in Stage 3 until April 3rd. He also said that students are required to complete the work that is sent to them through packets or online.
