  • Dallas County has moved the county pandemic threat level from red to orange. School recommendations associated with level orange include a return to in-person instruction for elementary students and students with special needs.
  • RISD elementary schools are finalizing preparations for the return of students in-person on Tuesday, September 8 for those families that made that choice.

  • Elementary parents of face to face students are urged to comply with guidelines and requests related to drop off, pick up, wearing masks, limiting in-person school visitations, and modeling responsible behavior for students.
  • Parents of in-person students must assess their child for illness every day, and not send students to school with any symptoms.
  • Parents of in-person students will be encouraged to complete a brief online student health screener each school day. Schools will be checking for completion a minimum of weekly, and parents with difficulty completing the online screener will be provided a paper copy home with students. The online screener will go live on September 7.
