Spring Break: HEB ISD’s COVID-19 Protocols

HEB ISD’s Spring Break for students is Monday, March 15 through Friday, March 19. During Spring Break, HEB ISD will not be collecting, tracing, or reporting student and staff COVID-19 cases. (Reported cases will be included on the HEB ISD COVID-19 Dashboard in the week after Spring Break.)

 

Instructions for all HEB ISD students and staff during Spring Break:

 

Before you return to school or work after Spring Break, all students and staff should self-screen to verify they:

  • are symptom free,
  • are not a household contact of a person with COVID-19 symptoms, and
  • have not tested positive or been a close contact to anyone with COVID-19 before returning to any HEB ISD facility.

 

If you have questions about COVID-19 during break, you can contact the Tarrant County COVID-19 Hotline at 817-248-6299.

 

If you test positive for COVID-19 during break, please follow all of these steps:

  • Do not return to in-person school or work until you have completed an isolation period (typically 10 days)
  • Report the positive result to Tarrant County Public Health at www.tarrantcounty.com/schoolreport (Tarrant County Public Health will be handling all contact tracing directly with families during the school holiday.)
  • Notify your school principal and school nurse by email of the positive test result. (Staff who do not work at a school should notify their supervisor.)
  • An HEB ISD nurse or staff member will contact you with information and direction when school reopens.

 

If you experience COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 during break, please follow all of these steps:

  • Do not return to in-person school or work until you have received instructions from your school (if you are a student) or your supervisor (if you are an employee).
  • Notify your school principal and school nurse by email of your COVID-19 symptoms or possible exposure to COVID-19. (Staff who do not work at a school should notify their supervisor.)
  • An HEB ISD nurse or staff member will contact you with information and direction when school reopens.

 

Where can I find principal and nurse email addresses?

  • On each school’s website, there is a navigation heading for “Teachers & Staff”. Under that heading, the page “Administrators & Front Office” has email addresses for front office staff at the school. Links to each school website can be found on this page: www.hebisd.edu/Schools
