Frequently Asked Questions About “Finish Strong ‘21”
As part of the “Finish Strong ‘21” campaign, Cotulla ISD is urging all seniors to return to on-
campus learning full time starting Wednesday, April 21st.
Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about this campaign.
What is the “Finish Strong ‘21” campaign?
The Finish Strong ‘21 campaign is Cotulla ISD’s effort to get as many HS Seniors as possible back to in-person instruction, 5 days a week, beginning on April 20th. The priority will be for seniors to return to ensure they are on-track to graduate and to give them a memorable end to their senior year.
Are the seniors being asked to attend class every day of the week?
We’re asking seniors to attend in-person every day, Monday to Friday, starting April 21st.
Why should the seniors return to on-campus class, five days a week?
Our seniors have worked hard to get to this point but have not been able to enjoy a traditional
senior year experience. We want our seniors to finish their high school career together in a
memorable way.
Meanwhile, for our seniors who are currently off track, attending school in person five days a week will help them get back on track to graduate.
We do ask seniors with extenuating circumstances who feel they cannot attend in-person class five days a week to contact their school’s front office to learn what support and options are available to them.
Is it safe for seniors to return? What is Cotulla ISD doing to ensure the safety of my
Yes, it is safe for seniors to return to in-person learning. Our high school has the building capacity to safely serve all seniors on-campus. All current campus safety protocols will remain in place. The wearing of masks is required for all students and staff members, and plexiglass partitions are in place where needed. It is important to know that all classrooms, hallways, and common areas are cleaned and sanitized daily; students will maintain social distancing protocols as much as possible; and students will have mandatory temperature checks before entering the campus. While district data shows that our Covid-19 cases have dropped significantly over the past few months, the district is encouraging any student over 16 years of age to get vaccinated, in line with CDC guidelines.
Will there be senior activities planned for students?
The CHS campus has been cleared to host senior activities for students, if all safety guidelines
and protocols are followed. Some of the most popular activities planned include: Senior Fun Day, Senior Awards, Signing Day and Ring Day, Senior Supper, Bell Awards, and Graduation. Many of these activities will be held during the school day, which is another reason we are strongly encouraging 100% of our seniors to return to in-person instruction.
What is the plan for graduation?
The district is moving forward with planning for in-person graduation. We want all our seniors to be able to experience an in-person graduation.
