WHCCISD received a report today that a high school student was confirmed via testing to have COVID-19.
In collaboration with local health authorities and consideration of relevant state and federal health guidelines, the District has notified the parents of students whom we know had close contact with the student who tested positive and those students will be quarantined per health guidelines. Otherwise, we will continue regular on-campus instruction and school related activities as appropriate. The District will thoroughly sanitize any areas that may have been affected.
Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your and your student’s health and contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms. Should staff develop symptoms while at school, the appropriate District administrator should be immediately notified. Should staff develop symptoms while NOT at school, they should stay home and the appropriate District administrator should be immediately notified. Should your student develop symptoms while at school, they should immediately notify their teacher or administrator. Should your student develop symptoms while NOT at school, they should stay home and notify the District via the COVID-19 hotline at (936) 274-5067 ext. *301.
If staff or students are in close contact with someone who has tested positive, or if they develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they should stay home and contact the appropriate administrator (for staff) or the COVID-19 hotline (for students). Keeping our students and staff, as well as their families and our community, safe and healthy is our highest priority at this time.
