Parents/Students: This letter is being sent in conjunction with the letter we sent out on Monday. This is a related case, not a new case.
Dear Chisholm Trail Parents, Students, and Staff,
In keeping with Round Rock ISD’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying parents, students, and staff that an individual who was present at Chisholm Trail Middle School was recently lab-confirmed or a probable case to have the virus that causes COVID-19. A probable case is defined as someone with symptoms and a close contact to a person who is a lab-confirmed case. Due to privacy laws, which prevent us from sharing personal information about students and staff, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify them.
The local health department will begin a case investigation and will contact any individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individual. All students and staff that came into close contact will be directly notified by Williamson County and Cities Health District or Austin Public Health staff as soon as possible. Those that were in close contact are required to remain off campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus, so that there will not be any further spread. Our custodial teams take great care in cleaning our facilities daily and extra attention was given to disinfecting the area occupied by this individual. We will keep you apprised of further updates.
While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
Operations at Chisholm Trail MS will continue as usual, and we will keep you apprised of further updates.
Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:
