Richardson ISD will require students who travel to high-risk countries over spring break to self-quarantine before returning to school, according to a message from Superintendent Jeannie Stone posted to Youtube on March 11.
Any students traveling to countries deemed high risk for coronavirus are required to stay home for 14 days following their arrival back home, Stone said. High-risk countries currently include China, Iran, Italy and South Korea, according to the CDC. Stone said the district will work with students impacted by self-quarantining in regards to absences.
Students who plan to travel internationally or go on cruises between now and the end of the school year are required to fill out a survey, Stone said. Information collected from the survey will be used by RISD health services for direction and will help keep families informed.
Additionally, RISD has ramped up its sanitation efforts and plans to give schools another thorough cleaning over spring break, Stone said.
