Tracing and reporting
If a student tests positive for COVID-19, all staff and families on that campus will be notified. If a student came into close contact with that individual, the student’s family will be notified directly via phone call.
Students participating in online learning must also report to the district if they test positive for COVID-19. Parents must fill out an online form; then, a campus nurse will reach out with additional steps.
All staff and students are required to wear face coverings while on KISD property, including buses. Students may remove them if engaged in “rigorous physical activity.” Per updated Center of Disease Control guidelines, face masks with exhalation vents may only be worn if paired with a face shield and with teacher approval.
Every KISD bus and room will be deep cleaned daily. Teachers have also been provided guidelines for cleaning throughout the school day, and hand sanitizer stations will be available at every campus.
Every morning, all KISD students and staff are expected to go through a screening process for COVID-19 symptoms. A checklist of symptoms has been provided by the district. Anyone who has these symptoms should not come to a KISD facility and should contact their health care provider and their school, according to the update.
