CCISD Operating in Level Alert 3

Clear Creek ISD Closes Through April 10, 2020

As a measure to prevent the wider spread of the Coronavirus, the Clear Creek Independent School District will close all CCISD facilities through Friday, April 10, 2020. This decision was made collaboratively with area school districts.

In a message to the community today, Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools reassured families that learning will continue for children. “While our schools are physically closed, our spirit of innovation will continue through distance learning. Our community has invested in the necessary resources to support this endeavor. I know there will be challenges along the way, but we will work through them, together.”

District leaders are working around the clock to support distance learning for teachers and students. The school district will announce more substantive learning plans later this week and will reach out to families to see what technical support is required at home to allow for distance learning.

All CCISD activities will cease through Friday, April 10, 2020 with a plan to reevaluate the situation on April 4, 2020.


  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick, too.
  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Cleaning your hands by washing them often or using hand sanitizer will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs often spread when a person touches something contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
  • Contact your family doctor if you have coronavirus-like symptoms and you have any questions.

An additional measure of prevention is to avoid Coronavirus-affected areas. You can learn more about the global travel advisories here.
