Welcome to our KNIPPA ISD 2020 - 2021 COVID-19 Support and Safety Guidance Center

The past few months have undoubtedly challenged all of us in ways we could not have foreseen. Despite the global pandemic that COVID-19 has created, the strength of our school-to-home partnership, and the resilient dedication of our staff and students, will undoubtedly continue to mitigate the adverse impact of COVID-19. During that time, our students continued to be challenged, to learn, and to experience success. This symbolized that regardless of circumstance, Rockrushers give more and always prevail. As we persist in navigating the challenge that this global pandemic has visited upon us, we are determined to continue with that same perseverance that puts student safety first while still maintaining educational excellence.

The first day of school is right around the corner--August 10-- and we are working hard to put the finishing touches on our return to school guidance. Guidance and expectations from the Texas Education Agency, as well as from our state and local authorities, continue to change at a rapid pace. This, in turn, has caused school plans to change, almost with each passing day, but rest always, all decisions are predicated on our number one priority: the health, safety, and success of our students, our families, and our staff.

We applaud the Rockcrusher community for what we have and unequivocally will continue to accomplish for your children, our students, for as long as this challenge exists. Never has our school motto, It takes a little more to be a Rockcrusher, been more evident or more important. To that end, we have created this one-stop information hub to help support our continued efforts to meet the needs of our Rockcrusher community.
