COVID-19  Information

2021-22 COVID Active Cases

As per TEA Public Health Guidance dated August 19, 2021

Required Actions if Individuals with Test-Confirmed Cases Have Been in a School

1. If an individual who has been in a school is test-confirmed to have COVID-19, the school must notify its local health department, in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, including confidentiality requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

2. Upon receipt of information that any teacher, staff member, student, or visitor at a school is test-confirmed to have COVID-19, the school must submit a report to the Texas Department of State Health Services via an online form. The report must be submitted each Monday for the prior seven days (Monday-Sunday).

3. Consistent with school notification requirements for other communicable diseases, and consistent with legal confidentiality requirements, schools must notify all teachers, staff, and families of all students in a classroom or extracurricular or after-school program cohort if a test-confirmed COVID-19 case is identified among students, teachers or staff who participated in those classrooms or cohorts.

NOTE**Please note that the state has made it the responsibility of the local health department to contact trace cases of covid-19. However, as a courtesy and in an attempt to slow the spread of covid-19, any student or staff member at WOISD that ‘might’ have been in close contact with any known confirmed positive case, those parents/guardians will have been contacted by campus administration prior to updating this dashboard so that parents/guardians can monitor for symptoms and determine if quarantine is warranted.

White Oak ISD currently serves 1460+/- students and 220+/- staff members
