  • Students who report feeling feverish should be given an immediate temperature check to determine if they are symptomatic for COVID-19.

Visitors:

All PISD campuses will be limiting visitors to after the school day when no students are present.  Even then, visitors must be screened for fever and other symptoms of COVID-19
