News and Announcements

School Closure Related Announcements


April 3, 2020

CISD has been notified that one of our employees and a student has tested positive for COVID-19.  Both individuals have been in self-quarantine for the last 8 days. The Department of Health and CISD are in the process of notifying those individuals with whom they came in contact with earlier. We believe, at this point, that contact was limited prior to the employee experiencing any symptoms. Our thoughts and prayers are with these individuals and their family.

Based on this current information, INSTRUCTIONAL PICKUP SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY HAS BEEN CANCELED FOR ALL CAMPUSES. Also, curbside meals at CHS and CMS have been suspended until further notice.

These decisions are made in the best interest of CISD, the city of Center, and Shelby County.
