Officials in Cy-Fair ISD reported 78 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on campuses from March 8-14, including 17 staff members, 60 students and one other individual across the district. Case numbers peaked at 378 in January and have decreased nearly every week since.

This brings the district’s total number of cases reported since the start of the 2020-21 school year to 3,434. As of March 15, CFISD reported 104 active cases and 3,330 recoveries.

Salyards Middle School was the campus with the highest number of new cases confirmed in the past week with one employee and eight students.

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 who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms are eligible for free rapid testing services at the site where Windfern High School was formerly located, 12630 Windfern Road, Houston, Mon.-Fri. from 7 a.m.-4 p.m.


A student ID or employee badge is required to receive one of these free tests, and students under the age of 18 must have parent or guardian consent. See additional requirements here.
