The Oct. 30 action came after the Fort Bend County Health and Human Services Department sent a Corrective Action Advisement to the district, which will notify any staff or students who have been directly exposed to the virus.
Of the 208 active coronavirus cases districtwide among students and staff, 49 were at Seven Lakes High School, according to data posted Oct. 30 on the district's COVID-19 case dashboard.
Seven Lakes High School has 1,846 students and about 300 staff members, according to a news release.
The temporary closure of in-person instruction means all extracurricular activities and student programs will also be temporarily suspended, per the release. Athletic coaches, CTE teachers and fine arts directors will reach out to students about resuming practices and competitions in the future.
Anyone with questions or concerns should review the guidance on the district's Smart Restart webpage. People can also email COVID19Responses@katyisd.org or call 281-396-7499 to speak to someone directly.
