It may have been a Spring Break no one ever expected – or wanted, with schools and businesses currently shuttered due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but Slaton ISD is doing its part to help students still learn. This is more important now that school closure had been delayed until May 4.

Beginning Monday (March 30), students started to receive distance learning lessons through Slaton’s portal. Paper packets were handed out at the schools, full of the week’s assignments.

Felicia Boyd, principal at Stephen F. Austin Primary speaking on behalf of all the principals, said the lessons are offered from early childhood special education through 12th grade online at

“With this (program), each school is offering a print version of the same or near same materials for parents/students to pick up at each school,” she said. “There are suggested times for most activities and multiple resources for the students to access.”
