Stroman Middle School to transition to remote learning temporarily

VICTORIA, Texas- The Victoria Independent School District announced Thursday that students and staff at Stroman Middle School will move to remote learning temporarily.

Effective Monday, January 25th, Stroman will transition to remote learning for one week (seven calendar days). VISD says this decision was made in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

School is expected to resume on campus Monday, February 1, 2021; however, remote learning may be extended if adequate staffing at all grade levels and departments is not met. All other schools will continue to attend class on campus at this time.

The district said that devices and hotspots will be available for distribution by appointment. Victoria ISD will continue to have three sites for parents to utilize for drive-up meal pick up while students are learning remotely: Crain Elementary, Chandler Elementary, and O’Connor Elementary.

Meal pick-up is available at these campuses every Monday and Thursday from 12:45-1:30 p.m. As more COVID-19 cases are being confirmed across the state, please remain vigilant.

Monitor yourself and your family for symptoms of COVID-19. Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:

• Temperature of 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth;

• Sore throat;

• New uncontrolled cough causing difficulty breathing (or, for students with a chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline);

• Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or

• New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever.
