NOTIFICATION OF CONFIRMED COVID-19 CASE ON CAMPUS

10/16/2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Thank you for all the support you have given to keep Avinger ISD safe from Covid-19.  Thank you for keeping students that have had close contact with a lab-confirmed Covid-19 case home, so the virus does not spread into the school. 

In keeping with Avinger’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families and staff members that a staff member who was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 was present on the campus on 10/16/20. The staff member contracted the virus off-campus.   Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify him or her.

 

The local health department has been contacted. I have spoken with a health authority.  A case investigation has begun and any individuals, if any, determined to be in close contact with the infected individual will be notified as soon as possible. So far, no reason to quarantine anyone else has been found. We will keep you apprised of further updates.

 

All persons on campus wear masks and social distance as much as possible, as well as taking other precautions such washing and sanitizing hands, cleaning and disinfecting of all high touch areas between classes, and cleaning and sanitizing all facilities and buses. 

 

Upon notice of the strong possibility of the staff member had come in close contact with a Covid 19 positive, off-campus person, the staff member exited the building, the students were relocated to a different room, and the room has been cleaned and disinfected. By Monday, other areas will be disinfected also.

 

At this time, we are asking you to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

 

Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:

  • Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth;
  • Sore throat;
  • New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with a chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline);
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or
  • New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever.

 

If you or any member of the Avinger community does begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the Avinger community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting 903-562-1355 and choose the option of the superintendent’s office. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to help@avingerisd.net.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jacquelyn Smith

  • If your child is a car-rider, please help by being on time for drop-off and pick-up.
