Covid Notice

Dear Parents/Guardians

Please keep your children home if they are ill. This is especially important during this COVID-19 spike. Please do not send your children to school if they have a fever prior to giving them a fever reducer. They are contagious. Sinton ISD no longer has COVID tests available. We will notify you when more tests come in.

All students who are ill will be sent home. The Texas Education Agency currently requires students to remain at home for 10 days and return on Day 11. We are waiting to see if the Texas Education Agency will update this guidance. We will send a notice if this happens.

Protocol for positive students

  • Students who have tested positive can only return to school 10 days after symptoms first appeared or 10 days since positive diagnosis

AND

  • no fever (100 degrees) within the last 24 hours without fever-reducing medication prior to return 

AND

  • no symptoms or improvement of symptoms of COVID -19

THEN

  • Return on Day 11.

Protocol for students who have close contact:

  • If the student does not have symptom and does not have fever without fever-reducing medication (100 degrees) the Texas Education Agency does not require that the student quarantine. If the student develops symptoms, follow protocol for positive students.

Face masks, frequent hand washing and hand sanitizing are still strongly encouraged.
