Red Oak ISD is committed to transparency and providing families and the community with current data regarding COVID cases. The district will be posting the numbers of lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 cases, on a daily basis.
For the 2021-2022 School Year, we are 'contact tracing' elementary students due to their inability to receive the vaccine at this time. This provides parents with the information necessary to make an informed decision whether to quarantine their child or have them return to school. We will include ALL ROISD student or staff member cases regardless of exposure or possible contraction location. Cases will also be communicated via email directly to the employees and parents of affected campuses.
We continue to follow all guidelines that prioritize public health and protect our students and staff to the greatest extent possible. We remind all students, staff, parents and the community that together we can reduce the number of active cases by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask, and frequently washing our hands. Please stay home if you are sick or have any symptoms, have been exposed to someone with COVID (or someone with multiple symptoms and they are being tested), or if you are awaiting test results.
Any positive case is excluded from all campuses and must follow health department isolation guidelines. Return criteria are outlined on the Return2Learn webpage and given to each individual sent home.
Together we can keep each other safe.
