Behavioral Health Support from RRISD



As we go into a time of so much uncertainty and unknowns, think about not only your intent but also your impact. As I talked with our students, as much as our impact can be negative, it can also be positive. During this time think about how your intent can have a positive impact on others.

- Dr. Amy Grosso, RRISD Director of Behavioral Health Services

These additional resources are guides to help parents and caregivers navigate discussions about the school closure and uncertain times.  

Message from the Council President regarding Covid-19 impact

Based on several conversations regarding the current public health concerns, and as advised by our Texas PTA President-Elect, we think it is best to cancel the March 24th Delegate Luncheon Meeting as it is a large gathering. At this time, Texas PTA is not authorizing the use of virtual meetings to conduct elections for Executive Boards at the Council or Local levels, However they are extending leniency on any elections slated for March 2020.

If and when it is safer to reschedule, we may be able to consider that, and if it does not work out, we will have to move the March Delegate Meeting business to April Delegate Meeting. This would include the elections and voting on the Standing Rules amendments. Please stay tuned.
