The following is a required posting of the operational status of Marfa ISD pursuant to the amended order by the City of Marfa, Mayor Manuel BaezaPlease click here for the operational status document.
Marfa ISD is working diligently to finalize our returning to school plan. Two things for certain are that Marfa ISD will begin school on August 10, 2020 and will offer both face-to-face instruction and distance learning methods for delivering instruction. Parents will determine which method they prefer for their student. Once a method of instruction is determined, students will be required to remain in that method for the remainder of that six-week grading period. We also know that in order for a student to participate in extracurricular activities, they must choose the face-to-face instruction method.
What is uncertain at this time is what face-to-face instruction will look like. Marfa ISD is considering the following methods:
Students choosing face-to-face instruction will attend school Monday through Friday as we traditionally have done. This method will make it more difficult to follow social distancing recommendations but allows students to have teacher support daily, or
Students choosing face-to-face instruction will have blended learning where half of the students will physically attend school Monday and Wednesday and the other half will physically attend school on Tuesday and Thursday. On the days that students do not physically attend they will be required to complete required assignments via distance learning. Everyone will have distance learning instruction on Friday. This will allow for social distancing to occur and deep cleaning to happen on Fridays but limits the time a student has with a teacher.
Marfa ISD administration is very interested in knowing how you feel about each method. Marfa ISD administration will be at the Presidio County Courthouse lawn at the following dates and times for you to visit with us.

Strength and Conditioning UPDATE
In order to maintain the highest health and safety standards for MISD students and staff, the first two weeks of the summer strength and conditioning program will be administered virtually via Zoom or other electronic methods.
Although we are all eager to get back on the field and on the court as soon as possible to prepare for the upcoming sports season, the safety of our students and community members will continue to be our number one priority.
La Transferencia Electrónica de Beneficios por Pandemia (P-EBT, por sus siglas en inglés) es un beneficio de alimentos único para las familias que perdieron el acceso a comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido debido al cierre de las escuelas. A fin de mayo, las escuelas les enviarán instrucciones para realizar una solicitud a las familias elegibles para la P-EBT. La solicitud de la P-EBT estará disponible la primera semana de junio.
Los beneficios de alimentos de la P-EBT son para los niños que recibieron beneficios de alimentos del Programa Asistencial de Nutrición Suplementaria (SNAP, por sus siglas en inglés) para marzo de 2020 y para los niños que estén certificados para recibir comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido en Texas durante el año escolar 2019-20.
