With teachers joining administrators on campus this week, Breckenridge Independent School District is gearing up for the 2020-2021 school year, which is on track to start for students on Wednesday, Aug. 19. The first holiday of the new year, Labor Day, will take place two and a half weeks later on Sept. 7.

Last month the BISD administrators announced their plan for the school year, which will include quite a few changes from past years. Because of concerns about COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel (new) coronavirus, students will have the option of attending classes in-person or online. Additionally, students will be expected to practice social distancing and may be asked to wear a mask or other face covering in some situations.

Unrelated to the coronavirus situation, North Elementary was closed over the summer, leading to a redistribution of the grade levels. East Elementary now will be for students in Pre-Kindergarten through second grade; South Elementary will be for students in third, fourth and fifth grades; Breckenridge Junior High will be for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades; and Breckenridge High School will for for students in ninth through twelfth grades.
