Packets of paper learning resources

Beginning Monday, April 6, Nacogdoches ISD campuses are revising the process of distributing paper education resources packets for NISD students that cannot access the resources on the Internet. Plans also include procedures for returning the packets to the campuses.

Parents and students picking up or returning packets should observe social distancing requirements (no closer than six feet) at all times, and groups should be limited to no more than 10 people. Documents for distribution will sit untouched before being made available to students and parents for pickup. A similar procedure will be followed with documents returned to the school.

Processes outlined below will continue through at least Friday, May 1, as outlined in the executive order by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.



Parents may pick up packets starting Monday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday.

Parents may return packets starting 8 a.m. Wednesday until 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Place the work in brown paper lunch bags labeled C into container B.

On Saturday, all bags will sit untouched until Monday at 8 a.m.

Note to parents: Please fold the papers one time and make sure the child’s name is on each paper in addition to putting the name on the outside of the bag.

Packets will be sorted for teachers starting Monday mornings from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Teachers will review the packets Monday starting at 10:30 a.m. and provide individual student feedback during the week either by using Google Meets, email or Google Classroom.



April 7 – Learning Packets will be mailed home to all students currently attending Carpenter Elementary. A digital copy will also be placed on the Carpenter Google Classrooms site. 

April 23 – Parents will return the learning packets to the Carpenter Elementary campus front porch and place it in a large container labeled Students' Work Return. Protective gloves will be provided and required for parent use. The drop off times are from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. 

Parents may also submit students' assignments to the teacher by emailing a picture of the completed work.

A Summary Sheet will be added to each packet so students can let us know what they may be having trouble with. The Summary Sheet needs to be returned each Monday. Student assignments and Summary Sheets will be reviewed.

Teachers will be available at designated times to help students with any materials. Students may also email any teacher at any time using the email list from our district webpage. Teachers will continue to make calls on Thursdays to reach out to our students.

Paper Copy Pick-up Procedures:

·         New material for each week will be available starting at 8am each Monday.

·         Packets should be picked up by Wednesday at the latest so students can turn in their work before new material is assigned.

·         Parents, if you are not bringing your student with you, please make sure to have a copy of your student’s schedule and teacher’s name so you can check off each class as you go.

·         If your student does not know their schedule, please email your child’s grade level counselor to request their schedule and they will email it back to you. A list of counselors by grade and their emails is available below.

·         Paper copies will be located in the breezeway in front of the main entrance of the school.

·         There will be Newspaper Stands with subject labels to collect the work for your student in that subject.

·         In each Newspaper Stand, there are paper trays that will be labeled by course with the work needed.

·         Please only take one handout per class and close the Newspaper Stand after taking what you need

·         Once you have all the handouts you need, please leave the area to protect yourself and others around you.


Safety Procedures:

·         Parents/students do not have to come at 8 a.m. on Monday. Packets will be available for pick-up throughout the day and week.

·         Please practice social distancing and keep space between you and any other parents/students while you are picking up paper copies.

·         If you have gloves and masks to wear, please use them.

·         Hand sanitizer will be available on round tables on both sides of the breezeway for use. 

·         Upon arrival, if there are a lot of cars parked and people picking up paper copies, please plan to pick up the work later in the day or week.

Paper Copy Turn-in Procedures

·         If possible, take a picture of the handout and email it to your teacher. That is the best way to turn in a paper copy.

·         In the same breezeway where you picked up work for the week, there will be plastic see-through storage drawers labeled for each subject.

·         If you have work from the first two weeks of digital learning, begin turning those items in.

·         Make sure to turn in the week’s work by Friday evening since work that has been turned in will be collected during the weekend.

·         Once storage drawers are collected during the weekend, they will be placed in the main commons of NHS and remain untouched for at least 24 hours.

·         Work turned in will be sorted starting Monday or Tuesday morning to be given to teachers for grading. The emptied turn-in storage drawers will then be placed back outside on Tuesday morning.

·         If you are unable to return the work by Friday, turn in the work the following week starting on Tuesday.

·         On all work turned in, make sure to include the student’s name and the teacher’s name on the handout.

·         Open the drawer with the correct subject and place the completed handout in the drawer.

·         Please make sure to close the drawer after turning in work.

·         Only turn in work that applies to that subject.

·         Do not turn in all handouts in the same drawer.



Because much of the work at Malcolm Rector is conducted online, students should:

      Continue course work online

      Contact teachers through Edgenuity or email or Remind 101

      Seniors, focus on course completions and IGC projects

      Mrs. Welch is the contact for those who will need to do IGC projects due to new changes in requirements

      Email campus staff with any concerns


For DAEP Students:

DAEP students should continue to work in Edgenuity. Students can use their normal login; if login information is forgotten, students can email their DAEP teacher.



Special Education and Deaf Education students will receive a paper packet containing their work delivered through the mail. Packets for April 6-10 will be mailed starting Wednesday, April 8, with a postage paid self-addressed return envelope.
