The Dell City ISD school board held its monthly meeting last Thursday, March 26, and steps to respond to the coronavirus pandemic – and to insure that instruction continues during the ongoing school closure – topped the agenda.
The Dell City ISD school board hosts its regular monthly meeting tonight, March 26, at 6 p.m., and community members may participate in the meeting remotely, in keeping with guidelines for physical distancing and last week's order from the governor of Texas prohibiting gatherings of 10 or more.
At the Dell City School, today was to be the first day back on campus after spring break. But with the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and the necessary steps being taken to slow the spread of the disease, instruction resumes this week – outside the classroom.
Educating students – challenging, inspiring and nurturing young minds – is a school's essential task. But ensuring student safety is an even more fundamental responsibility. Tragic mass shootings have focused attention on school safety, bringing new laws and requirements for schools. Dell City ISD has taken multiple steps to fulfill those requirements, and to safeguard our campus.
The Dell City ISD school board held its monthly meeting Feb. 27, and there was a lot on the agenda. The meeting began with the swearing-in of new school board member Tim McCray, and also included a presentation by Athletics Director Joe Czubinski, and fellow coaches Chuck Wilson and Trever Czubinski, to recognize the hard work and achievements of Cougar students in fall and winter sports.
Dell City School students, staff, parents and community members came together in Cougar Gym March 4 for “5A Day” and it was a chance to celebrate student achievement in the classroom, in academic UIL competitions and more. Events Coordinator Catrina Wilson announced winners of Awards for Academics, Attendance, Athletics and Activities, and Supt. Ruben Cervantes, Principal Carlos A. Contreras and classroom teachers passed out the certificates.
The results have come in for the elementary and junior-high academic UIL competitions held earlier this month, and our Dell City students made an impressive showing. Cougar students in grades three through eight traveled to Van Horn Jan. 10 for the competition, and they placed in a range of events.
Karen Torres – who joined Dell City ISD this year as the school's pre-K and kinder teacher – brings almost 25 years of experience to her work here. And while her career has been diverse – she's worked with ESL and special-education students, in Head Start, elementary and junior-high classrooms – her Dell City job is definitely a new chapter, with new opportunities for growth.
Oscar Guerrero, Dell City ISD's new special-education teacher, has had a variety of roles in his five years as an educator – from teaching science and math in rural communities to administering testing and federal programs at a large El Paso charter school. But in working with Dell City's special-education students, he's finding a particular satisfaction.
