COVID 19 Protocols (Revised 12/7/20 per CDC/TEA)

All PISD Schools will follow the same procedures.

Limited Public Gatherings

Public gatherings must be approved at the district level.  CDC Guidelines on social distancing and masks must be followed by all involved.  Audience size, capacity of the facility and ability to social distance will be determining factors in determining approval.  In the event of a spike in positive cases, events may be canceled/postponed.

Athletic Events (Per UIL Update Sept. 1, 2020)

The Governor’s Order regarding face masks applies to all athletic events.

All spectators attending athletic events must wear a mask upon entry and any time not practicing social distancing.

All staff, students, parents and spectators must pre-screen before arrival. Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19, especially a fever over 100.4, should not attend the event.

Attendance is limited to 50% capacity of the facility.
               Ranger Field – 2,500
               Ranger Gym – 514 

If a staff member tests positive for COVID-19:

  • Staff member must stay home until:
    • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
    • Symptoms, other than fever, have improved.
    • Fever-Free (without medication) for at least 24 hours.
  • Notify their supervisor and Lesa Kemp in HR as soon as possible.
  • Fax or email documentation from a doctor to Lesa Kemp.
  • Do not come to school or the administration building in person.
  • The district will notify the local health department.
  • The district will notify all staff and families of students on that campus.
  • Close off areas that are heavily used by the individual with the lab-confirmed case (student, teacher, or staff) until the non-porous surfaces in those areas can be disinfected, unless 7 days have already passed since that person was on campus.

If a student tests positive for COVID-19:

  • Notify their school administrator as soon as possible.
  • Do not come to school or the administration building in person.
  • Students must stay home until:
    • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
    • Symptoms, other than fever, have improved.
    • Fever-Free (without medication) for at least 24 hours.
  • The district will notify the local health department.
  • The district will notify all staff and families of students on that campus.
  • Close off areas that are heavily used by the individual with the lab-confirmed case (student, teacher, or staff) until the non-porous surfaces in those areas can be disinfected, unless more than 7 days have already passed since that person was on campus.

Close contact with a known positive COVID-19 patient:

Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet for a cumulative duration of 15 minutes within 48 hours of the patient showing symptoms; however, if both parties are wearing a mask, contact is not considered sufficient to spread the disease.

  • Schools should clean the areas used by the individual who shows COVID-19 symptoms while at school (student, teacher, or staff) as soon as is feasible.
  • Students who report feeling feverish should be given an immediate temperature check to determine if they are symptomatic for COVID-19.
  • Staff, Students, or Visitors who have been in close contact, (as defined above) with someone who has tested positive, must remain off campus until 10 days after the last close contact, as long as they continue to monitor themselves daily for symptoms and take appropriate precautions through day 14.  (Modified Dec. 7 to match new CDC recommendations.)
     

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

COVID-19 Symptoms

Any of the following symptoms may 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;
  • Loss of sense of taste or smell.

PREVENTION:

  • All persons are required to wear face coverings when in school buildings, except those who have a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a face-covering; (Must be supported by documentation from a physician.)
  • Daily self-screening of staff and students;
  • Hand sanitization is available throughout the building, and students are encouraged to use it every time they enter a new location;
  • Movement and transportation of students will be reduced as much as practical;
  • District-wide disease control education continues;
  • Continuous cleaning of commonly touched surfaces; and
  • Student cleaning of work area prior to each class change.


All protocols are subject to change/clarification as needed to comply with TEA & UIL guidelines.
