Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared a State of Emergency for the entire State of Texas as a result of the continuing health concerns surrounding Coronavirus or COVID-19. Further, Longview Mayor Andy Mack and the Longview City Council “strongly encourage” actions to limit large group exposure. In an effort to protect the health and safety of all  Pine Tree Independent School District (PTISD) students and staff, all classes and school events are  suspended until Monday, March 30, 2020. School buses will not run nor will there be staff on duty at any campus to receive students until that time.

Until further notice, all PTISD sponsored events are cancelled. This includes, but is  not limited to, all  UIL academic events, all UIL athletic events, and all school sponsored field trips. In addition, the PTISD Expedition 2020 scheduled for March 19, 2020, has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 30, 2020 at Maude Cobb.We realize the closure will have an impact on families. Administration is working on plans to provide and deliver meals to students by Tuesday, March 17, 2020, times and stop locations to be determined and shared via local media outlets.

District officials from every vantage point are actively monitoring this situation as more information becomes available. We collaborate and rely on factual information from medical experts to guide our decisions making the safety of all concerned top priority. Direction and recommendations come from the most reliable sources such as the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Gregg County Health Department, local health experts, the City of Longview and the Texas Education Agency.

District officials will continue to monitor and assess information as this situation develops. A few of our local efforts include access to hand sanitizers and comprehensive sanitizing methods on all buses. The custodial staff continue to provide expert-level cleaning services with their continuous training, quality of products used, and their knowledge of our buildings and systems. Additionally, professionals are coordinating efforts with others regarding student exposures when participating in future extracurricular activities outside of PTISD operations.

PTISD has a Pandemic/Seasonal Illness Preparedness Plan, in effect since September 2019, that proactively addresses how to prevent the spread of infectious illnesses. Many of the precautionary measures included in this document are reiterated by the CDCs recommendation which includes the following personal safety measures:
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover the mouth and nose with the inside of the elbow when coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close, large groups and contact with people who are sick.
Though the situation is unpredictable and concerning, we encourage you to visit the CDC website  for the most current and reliable information about infectious diseases and how to protect yourselves and your family. Additional information is available at the Texas Education Agency website for questions on how this situation will affect Texas schools, and the most recent information about coronavirus in Texas may be found at the Texas Department of State Health Services website.

Please monitor the official district website at ptisd.org and social media accounts; FaceBook, Twitter, and Instagram for timely updates. Local media outlets will share official changes to the school schedule. 

We are wholeheartedly committed to providing the best learning environment for the students of Pine Tree, regardless of the challenge.
