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, as well as the recovery status of those cases, on a daily basis. For full transparency, we include ALL ROISD student or staff member cases regardless of exposure or possible contraction location, including all virtual learners. These numbers may not match TEA counts since we are reporting ALL students and staff, not just on-campus cases. 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. Campuses will conduct contact tracing and notify any individuals directly. Identified students will be converted to virtual learners. Return criteria are outlined on the Return2Learn webpage and given to each individual sent home.
Together we can keep each other safe.
