Communication and Engagement
CFBISD values and encourages strong communication between the campus and its school community, as well as the district and its staff.

Safety in Our Schools for Traditional Onsite Learning
Parents should screen their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms prior to sending them to school each day. The traditional, in-person learning model for Pre-K through 12th grade will look like a typical school day for students and teachers, but with heightened safety protocols and social distancing procedures. Safety for our students and staff will be our top priority.
Our classrooms will be a safe environment for our students and staff. Specifically, students and staff will be provided with the following:
- Reusable and disposable face coverings
- Access to refillable hand sanitizer
- Sanitation stations
- Face shields will be provided
Note: CFBISD will use an organic disinfectant product that makes surfaces uninhabitable by germs and viruses for 90 days.
Staff will be required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to reporting to work each day. Staff will have their temperature taken before entering any CFBISD facility. Social distancing guidelines will be followed in classrooms as well as common areas and handwashing protocols will be in place. Outdoor learning spaces will be used when possible. We are committed to following health guidelines as defined by the CDC and Health Department.
Lunchtime Procedures for Students
To ensure the safety of our students during lunch we will follow these safety protocols:
- Teachers will monitor cafeterias and hallways to enforce social distancing.
- Frequent hand washing will be recommended.
- Depending on the number of students in the school, students may have meals in both the cafeteria and in classrooms.
- Students will not be allowed to share food.
CFBISD will follow the University Interscholastic League (UIL) guidelines for extracurricular activities.
