March 4, 2022  Cityscape Schools‘ has remained consistent with a mask protocol to help protect students, staff, and families from the COVID-19 virus – and its variants. Over the last month, the numbers have been encouraging as positive cases continue to decrease in Dallas County. Effective Monday, March 7, masks will no longer be a requirement on Cityscape property; however, they are still recommended.  You may have also heard that Dallas County recently transitioned to Level Orange. This additional measure gives us greater confidence to adjust some of our protocols. School visitors and volunteers will be allowed on a limited basis, and masks are recommended while inside.  Cityscape continuously monitors data and local developments related to the health and safety of all and may consider other protocols if needed. Thank you for your compliance this year, and Cityscape looks forward to returning to some sense of normalcy.

Letter from the Superintendent

Cityscape Schools continues to make the best decisions possible in the light of the new increasing COVID-19 transmission rate in Dallas County.  Last week, Dallas County upgraded its COVID-19 risk level to Red-High Risk Transmission due to the spike in cases related to the Delta variant.  Cityscape will continue to monitor the current changing environment and make any changes necessary to protect the health of its students and staff.          At this time, Cityscape is following Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order GA-36, prohibiting governmental entities in Texas (including school districts and charter schools) from requiring or mandating the wearing of masks.  Regardless, Cityscape strongly recommends every student and staff member wear a mask for the new school year. Cityscape will continue to do everything possible to ensure your child's safety by following all the recommended COVID-19 protocols.  At each campus, these protocols are: 1) self-screening for COVID-like symptoms, 2) quarantining and close contact tracing as needed, 3) social distancing when feasible, 4) acrylic shields will be at all desks and cafeteria tables, 5) handwashing or the use of hand sanitizer throughout the day, and 6) daily cleaning and sanitizing of all classrooms, offices, and common areas. FACE-TO-FACE INSTRUCTION The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has announced that no public schools will continue with at-home/online learning.  Last year, COVID-19 created massive learning loss among Texas students, including your children.  Face-to-face instruction is the best and only method to ensure the success of your children's future educational and vocational goals.  Further, your student's social and emotional well-being depends on attending face-to-face classes.  We will continue to do everything possible to ensure your child's safety and continue to be transparent in reporting any COVID-19 cases…
