Trustees hear COVID update

The Slaton Independent School District Board of Trustees conducted a light meeting Thursday evening (Nov. 12) at the Administration Office.

Superintendent Jim Andrus gave a report.  He said currently the District was “struggling to survive,” as there are currently 52 cases of COVID reported as of the meeting Thursday.  He added there is more teaching being done virtually now than before the extended learning process due to COVID quarantines of students.

Currently, Andrus reported enrollment was down 28 students but the District was working to get them back. He added the schools’ principals were doing a good job to get them back, adding COVID was creating a sense of apathy, but they were encouraging parents to help them through it.
