LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Should Lubbock-Cooper ISD be required to cancel in-person classes due to inclement weather on Monday, January 11, the district will transition to an asynchronous learning plan during the closure. This will prevent students from having to make up a pre-scheduled weather holiday.

An asynchronous learning plan means that students MUST participate in online learning activities by:

checking in to their learning management system (Google Classroom/Seesaw) to access assignments;

having contact with their teacher via online portals; and/or

submitting completed assignments.

In anticipation of this possibility, elementary students will take iPads, charging blocks, and cords home at the end of the school day today for use on Monday (IF NEEDED).

If a student is absent today and therefore cannot take their device home, parents are welcome to pick up devices from the office before the close of school today, or students are free to use a personal device or a device belonging to another member of the household.

Secondary students should already have all devices and equipment which travels back and forth between home and school.
If cancellation becomes necessary, students must bring all materials back to school when in-person classes resume.
In the event in-person classes are canceled, student participation is expected in order for students to avoid being counted absent.

If inclement weather calls for a delay rather than a cancellation, in-person classes will proceed on a late-start schedule.

Decisions in regard to delay or cancellation will be made as early as possible with the hopes of minimizing disruption to student and family schedules. School administrators consider all available information prior to making a decision.
