Corona Virus

District-Wide Operational Guidelines

Updated: March 15, 2020

Start Date: March 16, 2020


The health and safety of our students, parents, staff and community is top priority.

We will continue to monitor and adjust on a day to day basis and will post operating guidelines and updates as needed. Below is additional information for our school day Monday and until further notice. We ask for everyone's patience and support as we attempt to service the needs of our students and community.



1. Neither students nor staff are allowed to come to school if they have had a fever within the last 24 hours. They must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school.  This is current policy and will be strictly enforced. If a student is sent home during the school day with fever, they cannot return the next day. Fever is anything over 100.


           2. If a student has been exposed to the corona virus or has a diagnosed medical condition

resulting in an impaired immune system use your discretion and contact campus administration as soon as possible. Principals will have information and game plans to address the needs of students who cannot attend.


           3. It is a request that you send bottled water to school with your child.


4. There will be no discretionary visits to school. Visitors will not be allowed inside the locked doors to classroom wings. The only visitors allowed are those with official business, such as scheduled meetings or conferences in designated areas, or picking up their child.


5. There will be no visitors during lunch periods.


6. Food delivered to school must be left at campus offices. Food may not be delivered to junior high or high school students off Cactus Street as they travel to lunch.


7.  All school parties are cancelled.


8.  UIL has cancelled all extracurricular activities, athletic and academic, through March 29. Regular practice schedules for extracurricular activities will continue.


9.  Field trips are cancelled.


Each campus will provide additional guidelines that target their specific needs. I encourage everyone to

monitor social media and our website with this ever-evolving health crisis. I receive daily updates and

online conference calls with TEA to do our best at making good decisions. Meetings with our local health

providers and the city are also scheduled.
