COVID-19: Essential Personnel Letter

As more cities and counties in the state of Texas are requiring residents to shelter in place due to COVID-19, school entities may need to provide written documentation for employees who are categorized as essential personnel and required to report to work to continue critical district operations during school closures.

A new sample letter is available in the HR Library to help districts provide necessary documentation for employees to travel outside of the home to the district.
