The Texas Education Agency requires public school districts throughout the state to submit a weekly report detailing the number of test-confirmed positive COVID-19 cases among students and employees who participate in any on-campus activity. This data does not include students learning remotely and may not include those who test positive while in quarantine if they were not on campus during their infectious period.
Weekly data is shown below, and campus-specific data can be found here.
CFISD students and staff members experiencing COVID-19 symptoms are eligible for free rapid testing services Mon.-Fri. from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. at the site where Windfern High School was formerly located: 12630 Windfern Road, Houston. A student ID or employee badge is required to receive one of these free tests, and students under age 18 must have parent or guardian consent. See additional requirements here.
