REFUGIO, Texas — All campuses within the Refugio ISD will continue remote learning on Tuesday, January 5, a letter from the superintendent stated.

The district was planning on returning to in-person learning on Jan. 5, however, those plans have changed.

Statement from Refugio ISD: 

"Due to a significant number of students and staff self-reporting COVID-19 infection or close contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive, the district will continue remotely until health conditions allow for a safe return."

There is a tentative return date set for Tuesday, January 19, district officials said.
