Winter Break COVID-19 Protocols for HEB ISD Students & Staff

HEB ISD’s Winter Break is Monday, December 20 - Wednesday, January 5. During Winter Break, HEB ISD will not be collecting or reporting student and staff COVID-19 cases. Reported cases will be included on the HEB ISD COVID-19 Dashboard in the week after Winter Break.

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

Before you return to school or work in January, all students and staff should self-screen to verify they:

  • do not have 1 major or 2 minor COVID symptoms as listed in the Return to Learn Plan.
  • have not tested positive 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 with Tarrant County Public Health’s Self Report Online Form (https://tcph.quickbase.com/db/bqtmeyg9u?a=nwr) (Tarrant County Public Health will be handling all COVID cases 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 (1 major or 2 minor) 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 symptoms (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 

The HEB-Concentric Testing Center will be closed over the Winter Break. Update as of January 3, 2022: The Testing Center has re-opened early. For more information and to pre-register before arriving, visit our HEB ISD COVID Testing Center webpage: www.hebisd.edu/COVIDTestingCenter
