Screening Protocols

General

The health and safety of CSISD staff and students is a top priority. Students and staff should self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms regularly and individuals who present with symptoms should stay home.

Isolation Protocols

Students or Staff Displaying COVID-19 Symptoms

Quarantine Protocols  

Individuals who have been in close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 should monitor for symptoms. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine following close contact. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated may choose to quarantine.

If you choose to quarantine following close contact with someone who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19, please note the following:

Return to Work/School Protocols  

In the event that a CSISD teacher, staff, student, or other campus visitor is lab confirmed positive for COVID-19, they must stay at home throughout the infection period and can not return to campus until cleared for re-entry.

Individuals who are confirmed to have COVID-19 will not be allowed to return to work/school until they meet criteria as established by the CDC and are released by their physician.

If the individual has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, the individual must either

  1. obtain a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for return based on an alternative diagnosis; or
  2. obtain an accurate infection test at an approved testing location (https://tdem.texas.gov/covid-19/) that comes back negative for COVID-19  

If an individual has tested positive for COVID-19 and believes the test was a false positive, and wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, the individual must either:

(a) obtain a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for return based on an alternative diagnosis, though for health privacy reasons the note does not need to indicate what the alternative diagnosis is, or

(b) obtain two PCR acute infection tests (at a physician’s office, approved testing location, or other site) at least 24 hours apart that come back negative for COVID-19.

Protocols for Face Coverings

In accordance with the Governor’s most recent executive order, CSISD does not require the use of face coverings.  

Protocols for Disinfecting and Hand Sanitizing

General

Frequent disinfection and hand sanitization will ensure health and wellness of students and staff.

Campus Cleaning  

Additional Cleaning for COVID-19 Positive Cases

If a classroom or facility is closed due to COVID-19 spread, hospital grade disinfectant will be used. Any areas heavily used by the lab-confirmed case will be closed off until the non-porous surfaces can be disinfected, unless more than 3 days have passed since that person was on campus.

Additional Measures for Disease Mitigation

Child Nutrition

Transportation

CSISD is committed to safely transporting students that are eligible to and from school. Registration is required for transportation to and from school to assist in better route planning.

To ensure CSISD provides the safest and cleanest environment possible we will:
