Mountain Valley Elementary School said in an email to parents today that three members of its “campus community” experienced COVID-19 symptoms while in the building and were isolated before leaving campus.

Pieper Ranch Middle School parents received the same email on Tuesday. Church Hill Middle School parents also were notified that two more members of its campus community began experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms while in the building.

Those who reported symptoms will be required to stay home until they meet one of these criteria:

  • 24 hours-fever free
  • Improvement in symptoms
  • 10 days since symptoms began or
  • Until they receive an alternative diagnosis from a medical professional.

Both schools report conducting deep cleanings of the areas of campus where those individuals spent time.

Comal ISD does not make these emails publicly available. Please send a copy of your schools’ emails to info@mycanyonlake.com so that we can accurately report on possible outbreaks in Comal ISD schools.
