Coronavirus (COVID-19)

  Summer Programs

Safety Precautions for COVID-19

 

Every adult who is responsible for providing care or education for children and youth in various settings for summer programs should be aware of the recommendations for infection control and to implement measures within these settings, along with how and when to report cases to Public Health Region 7.

 

Some general guidelines to keep in mind are:

 

  • Parents should monitor the health of their children and not send them to the program if they exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Staff should not come to work if they are feeling sick.
  • Anyone who thinks they might be sick with COVID-19 should be sent home immediately, seek testing, and report results to the program given the implications for other children, families, and staff.
  • Positive results should be immediately reported to Public Health Region 7 either by emailing HSR7.COVID@dshs.texas.gov or by calling our 24/7 number, 254-778-6744.

 

Additional recommendations and safety precautions can be found on the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/playing-sports.html and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/summer-camps.html.

Dear Caldwell ISD Parents and Community,

 

The document below is in accordance with the new guidance from Executive Order GA-34 and the Texas Education Agency. The document below will be in effect as of June 5, 2021. This document replaces all prior guidance.

 

Two key points to understand in the new guidance is that school districts are still required to report positive COVID-19 cases to local health departments. Another key point is that school districts cannot require face coverings; however face coverings may still be worn if individuals choose to do so.

 

Caldwell ISD wishes to thank students, staff, parents, and community members for being supportive and patient as we have navigated through the continuous challenges and changes brought upon us during this unprecedented time. We appreciate you!
