Mountain Valley Elementary School – Aug. 26

Today, a member of our campus community began experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 while in the building. In accordance with case management procedures, the individual was isolated until they could leave campus.

In accordance with TEA requirements, the individual will be required to remain home until they meet the following criteria: 24-hours fever-free, improvement in symptoms, and 10 days since symptoms began OR until they receive an alternative diagnosis from a medical rofessional.

Our district custodial team will also conduct a deep cleaning of the areas on campus that the individual accessed as an extra precautionary measure prior to campus opening tomorrow.

As a reminder, please continue to complete the health screener each day, encourage your children to follow all safety guidelines in place, and have them stay home if they or anyone in the household is experiencing peaceful symptoms of COVID-19. If you have questions about potential symptoms, please consult your physician.
