In keeping with SSISD’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying you via our regularly updated dashboard when students and staff who were lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 were present at SSISD facilities.  Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the names of the individuals or details that may identify them.  

The district and our local health department conduct case investigations and will contact any individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individuals. All students and staff that came into close contact will be directly notified as soon as possible. Those that were in close contact will 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. 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, to watch for symptoms of COVID-19. 

Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:
Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
Loss of taste or smell
Cough
Difficulty breathing
Shortness of breath
Fatigue
Headache
Chills
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Shaking or exaggerated shivering
Significant muscle pain or ache
Diarrhea 
Nausea or vomiting

If you or any member of the SSISD community does begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the SSISD community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting the campus nurse. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at 903-885-0999.
