Commitment

  • Dr. Mark Henry

    LEAD Safely is our commitment to continuing to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students and staff.   LEAD Safely 2020-2021 was developed by the Reopening CFISD Committee, comprised of administrators, principals, teachers, parents, and students and based on guidance from the Texas Education Agency. This plan was originally released on July 27, 2020 and has been revised as we have received additional guidance from the county and state during an ever-changing situation.
