2020-2021 Options

We are committed to responding to COVID-19 while providing a safe, quality, engaging learning environment for students, we do not take lightly the trust you are placing in us. Because we know each family’s circumstances are different, families may choose between an on-campus or virtual school option for the 2020-2021 school year.

We want you to know what you can expect from Snyder ISD and what Snyder ISD needs from families in order to make this school year as successful and as safe as possible. You will find information on Virtual and On-Campus learning options, district-wide COVID-19 protocols, and ways your family can help us to maintain healthy schools.

When you register your child for school, you will select the option that best meets the needs of your family. If the original instruction choice is not a good fit for the family, the district has established a grace period for three weeks after the start of school allowing families to change instructional environments. After that date, you can change enrollment between on-campus and virtual instruction at the end of each grading period.

If special circumstances arise during the school year requiring a switch to virtual classes, please contact the principal for guidelines.

Our commitment to providing a quality education remains strong. We look forward to partnering with you during this unprecedented time to provide the best possible experience for students.

Plans and protocols are subject to change as we receive new information and guidelines from local, state, and federal officials.

On-Campus and Virtual School Options & Expectations

All students will attend school, either on-campus or virtually, on a daily basis. Each option will follow the same curriculum and a standard grading policy that measures how well students understand the coursework. All students will be provided with technology to interact with their teachers and coursework in any environment.


Students attend school daily for in-person classes.

Long-Term On-Campus

  • Parent/guardian has chosen for their student to attend school in-person each day.

  • Students who are enrolled in on-campus learning must attend all classes on-campus (unless they meet the criteria for short-term virtual).

Students may not attend some classes in-person and others on-campus due to preference or to avoid a tardy.


Students attend school daily via virtual classes.

Long-Term Virtual

Parent/guardian has elected their student to attend school for 6 weeks or longer.

Short Term Virtual

  • COVID Exposure or COVID positive test

  • Illness

  • Health-Related Appointment

How to change learning environments

If a parent/guardian wishes to change their student from on-campus instruction to virtual or vice versa, changes must occur at the end of the grading period unless prior authorization from the campus principal has been obtained.
