Welcome to Spring Branch Middle School

Dear Wrangler Community, 
I hope you and your family are doing well during this very unusual time.  Please know the kids and parents of the Wrangler Community have been in my thoughts and prayers.  I have to admit, these past few days have been like nothing I have ever experienced as an educator.  I understand extra time to spend with your family is a precious gift, but as we settle into a very unpredictable reality I think we all agree we miss the role education plays in our lives.   
Communication in times like these is essential.  Mr. Kim, CISD Superintendent, has been working with local, state and federal agencies to ensure we are sharing the most current and accurate information.  If you have not already done so, please take the time to read the emails Mr. Kim has been sending to the CISD Community.  These emails are key in making sure you stay informed.  In an effort to ensure the most accurate information is being shared, I will be limiting my communication with you and encourage you to stay informed based on the information shared by Mr. Kim.
As a father of two teenage daughters, I understand the challenges of keeping our kids at home and actively engaged in the learning process.  The CISD has created a webpage as a resource for parents and students to use as a guide for learning while at home.  This information can be found on the following link:
The CISD is working daily to provide guidance on how to enhance learning opportunities for all students while on this extended break. Please understand that any work completed using the Home Learning Opportunity (HLO) will not be taken for a grade.  
Any new developments in terms of providing learning opportunities will come from the district level, rather than the campus level.  This will ensure the message is consistent and all students have access to the same information.  Please make sure you continue to read the daily updates from Mr. Kim, as he has the most accurate and up to date information on how the CISD will address the needs of our students and parents during this very challenging time. 
Please tell the kids that I miss them and cannot wait to see them back on campus as soon as possible.  I will be monitoring my email during this time.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at chris.smith@comalisd.org.

Thanks and have a great Wrangler Day!
