Did you know Presidio County’s current response rate in the United States Census is just 25.9%? That’s less than half the response rate we had back in the 2010 census. Presidio County stands to lose over $10,000 for each person not counted. If our response rate were to stay at the current level, Presidio County could lose more than 51 million dollars in the next 10 years. Help us make sure every Marfan gets counted. We’ve got a ton of great prizes including $50 gift cards at Porter’s, $50 gift cards at Convenience West BBQ, free burritos at Marfa Burrito, and large DQ Blizzards! 190 winners will be selected to win one of these prizes. Getting counted is easy—just use one of these forms to enter your phone number. Census workers will call you from the (202) area code to get you counted and you’ll automatically be entered to win a prize. Marfa Counts: http://www.riocog.org/2020-census/marfa-english/ ¿Sabías que la tasa de respuesta actual del Condado de Presidio en el Censo de los Estados Unidos es de solo el 25,9%? Eso es menos de la mitad de la tasa de respuesta que obtuvimos en el censo del 2010. El Condado de Presidio está por perder más de $10,000 por cada persona no contada. Si nuestra tasa de respuesta se mantuviera en el nivel actual, el condado de Presidio podría perder más de 51 millones de dólares en los próximos 10 años. Ayúdanos a que todas las personas de Marfa sean contados. Tenemos muchos grandiosos regalos que incluyen tarjetas de regalo de $50 en Porter's, tarjetas de regalo de $50 en Convenience West BBQ y burritos gratis en Marfa Burrito. ¡Y también tenemos DQ Blizzards tamaño grande para regalar! 190 ganadores serán seleccionados para ganar estos premios.

Marfa ISD would like to inform you that on September 8, 2020, The Marfa City Council approved Gonzales Street to become a one way street heading north between Lincoln and Columbia. This will help make the dropping off and picking up of students safer and more efficient. This will also allow us to practice social distancing during student drop off and pick up, because parents will be required to stay in their vehicles and students will not be walking across traffic.

Nineteen years ago, on this day, the United States of America came under attack by terrorists. 2974 people died this 11th day of September at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and on 4 hi-jacked planes. On this 19th year anniversary of September 11, 2001, certainly many people feel that the events of that day must never be forgotten. Today we remember and honor the thousands of people who died in the events of September 11, 2001. We recognize the endurance of those who survived, the courage of those who risked their lives to save others, and the compassion of all who supported one another. May the lives remembered, the deeds recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal beacons, which reaffirm respect for life, strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and inspire an end to hatred, ignorance and intolerance. Let’s make sure that none of us take for granted our personal liberties and freedoms that have come through great sacrifice, past and present.

The deadline to apply for P-EBT food benefits has been extended to August 21.

If so, your family may be eligible for this one-time food benefit. Visit hhs.texas.gov/pebt to learn more about P-EBT. For questions regarding eligibility or if you need help applying, contact the P-EBT Call Center at 833-613-6220. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT benefits. If a family thinks their child was incorrectly denied P-EBT benefits, they need to contact HHS within 15 days of receiving their denial notice by calling the P- EBT Call Center or by email at AES_PEBT_Complaints@hhsc.state.tx.us. They must provide proof they received free to reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program, to get P-EBT benefits. Proof includes the award letter that is sent to parents when their children become eligible for the National School Lunch Program. If children attend a CEP or P2 school, a school ID or report card can be used. La fecha límite para solicitar beneficios del P-EBT ha sido extendido hasta el 21 de Agosto. Si tu niño(a) recibió comidas gratis o a un precio reducido por medio del Programa Nacional de Almuerzos Escolares (NSLP en inglés) durante el año escolar 2019-2020, tu familia podría ser elegible para recibir este beneficio único de alimentos. Para más información sobre el P-EBT, visita: http://hhs.texas.gov/es/pebt. Si tienes alguna pregunta sobre elegibilidad o necesitas ayuda para completar tu solicitud, comunícate con el Centro de atención del P-EBT al 833-613- 6220. El reglamento de carga pública no aplica a los beneficios de P-EBT. Si solicitaste beneficios a favor de tu niño(a) y tu solicitud fue denegada por error, comunícate con HHS dentro de los 15 días siguientes de haber recibido la notificación. Llama al Centro de atención del P-EBT o envía un email a AES_PEBT_Complaints@hhsc.state.tx.us. Necesitarás comprobar de que tus niños recibieron comidas gratuitas por medio del Programa Nacional de Almuerzos Escolares para recibir beneficios del P-EBT. El comprobante puede ser la notificación que recibiste cuando tus niños calificaron para el Programa Nacional de Almuerzos Escolares. Si tu niño(a) asistió a una escuela CEP o P2, la identificación escolar o la boleta de calificaciones puede servir como comprobante.

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. Thursday, July 10, 2020 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Thursday, July 10, 2020 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm Monday, July 13, 2020 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday, July 13, 2020 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm Wednesday, July 15, 2020 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Wednesday July 15, 2020 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm Marfa ISD administration can also be contacted Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at 432-729-5500.

Parking spots for each graduate’s immediate family will be reserved along the west side of the County Courthouse. All other parking spots along the parade route are open to the public.  Seniors will be driven in decorated vehicles and proceed from the high school headed east down Lincoln Street. The parade will turn left to go all the way around the Courthouse, then continue south down Highland Avenue, turning right on Oak Street where the parade will end.  Music, announcements, and senior highlights will be broadcast live on KRTS at 93.5 FM and stream at marfapublicradio.org. The school will also stream the event live on the Marfa Shorthorns Facebook page.  Following the parade, KRTS will air a special hour-long program of dance music put together by the MHS junior class to honor the graduating seniors. Everyone is invited to tune in to 93.5 to join the socially-distanced afterparty.
