Potential Exposure / School Closure

  • If a student or staff member is potentially exposed the following will occur: 

    • The school nurse notified immediately to report exposure, suspected, or confirmed positive COVID-19
    • The school nurse will contact students/employee to investigate and complete COVID-19 Case Report
    • Identify areas/buildings where student/employee was present for cleaning
    • Contact parents, students, and staff to inform them of possible exposure and school closure (if applicable)
    • Should a building be closed all parents will be notified, HISD Facilities will determine the deep cleaning and sanitization timeline (the timeline will vary based on the size of the campus; the goal is to have the building closed for no more than one day)
    • In the event school is closed students will continue instruction virtually until the building is reopened (students are expected to take their laptops home daily)
