Protocols for Campus Closures

Immediate closure and subsequent reopening of Frisco ISD campuses during periods of peak COVID-19 activity will be necessary throughout the 2020-2021 school year in order to maintain healthy school environments for Frisco ISD students and staff. School closures lasting up to five days, in accordance with Texas Education Agency (“TEA”) guidance, will allow for the completion of necessary Close Contact Reviews and implementation of mandatory quarantine procedures.

Factors for Campus Closures

The District will determine whether a campus closure is necessary based on the following factors:

Each campus closure will be for an initial period of one day and the District will reevaluate the situation each evening to determine whether the closure should be extended, up to a maximum of five days.

Parents will be notified each evening prior to a school day that their campus is closed. Subsequent decisions to extend the closure or reopen the campus will be communicated each evening prior to a school day.

Protocols for Face Coverings

Staff, visitors and students in 3rd through 12th grade will wear face coverings while at school and on buses, including in classrooms, except when campus protocols specifically permit their removal. Students in Pre-K through 2nd grade will wear face coverings in hallways, common areas, during arrival and dismissal and while waiting for or riding on a school bus and are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings in the classroom. This includes individuals who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 or been vaccinated.

Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control recommends that all staff, visitors and students wear face coverings while at school. Face coverings are strongly encouraged for all individuals at all times while at school and on buses.

Students’ individual needs will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Requests for accommodations should be submitted to campus administration.

Protocols for Campus Visitors

General

Campuses will utilize virtual meeting options to limit campus visitors when possible. All visitors who enter the building will be required to wear a face covering. Individuals who proceed beyond the reception area will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and must follow specific guidelines for visitors.
