LISD Porter Center Classrooms Close Due to Illness

On Monday, December 19, it was determined to close several classrooms at the LISD Milton C. Porter Education Center based on illnesses, including positive COVID-19 tests, impacting both staff and students. This decision was reached out of an abundance of caution to proactively prevent further spread or exposure to more illness before the holiday break. All impacted staff and families were notified directly.

Impacted classrooms include SXI/SCI and preschool programs located at the Porter Center. This closure will last through the remainder of the week with all programs scheduled to resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2023, following winter break. Due to the nature of services required and best instructional practices for these student populations, remote/virtual instruction will not be provided during this closure.

As a reminder, free at-home COVID-19 rapid tests are available for families and staff at all LISD buildings during regular school hours before and after winter break. We wish our district community a healthy and happy winter break.
