Parents and Staff,
Chireno ISD was informed one of our elementary teachers was on campus yesterday and tested positive for Covid after school. She assured me that she and her students were all properly masked for the duration of her interaction with them. We have given the parents of that teacher’s class the option of keeping their child home or sending them to school. We have deep cleaned and sanitized the room and common areas. We are requiring students and staff that are found to be in close contact to quarantine.
All Chireno employees and students are instructed to continue to follow CDC and TEA guidelines and recommendations and to practice social distancing.
Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your health and contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms.
Chireno ISD is continuing to monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed.
Michael Skinner, Superintendent of Schools
