COVID-19: CASE COUNTS & COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS
Consistent with school notification requirements for other communicable diseases, and consistent with legal confidentiality requirements, Ingleside ISD will notify all teachers, staff, and families of all students in a school if a COVID-19 case is identified among students, teachers or staff who participate in any on-campus activities. Ingleside ISD is committed to transparency as we communicate during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it does take time to ascertain facts and details of a reported case when we learn about it, and we ask for your patience as we work to first take care of the individuals who test positive.
Ingleside ISD will employ a notification process as outlined below (as of August 17, 2021):
Tier 1 - CAMPUS NOTICE(s) – Upon confirmation of a confirmed COVID-19 case, communication will be sent out to all teachers, staff, and families of students who are assigned to a campus/facility from the District (where the individual may have reported). Once the notices have been sent out campus-wide, we will update notices on our website through the COVID-19 link. Please refer to the information in the table below regarding the current status of COVID-19 cases. Updates will be done at the end of each school day Monday - Friday.
**All case releases that occurred during the summer that relate to UIL activities, have been emailed out to IHS families and were reported to the San Patricio Health Department**

The information in the chart above contains historical data based on reports received by the district since August 17, 2021, when children returned to on-campus learning. Ingleside ISD relies on the San Patricio County Health Department as well as our staff, students/parents/families, and community members to proactively report information for the health and safety of all employees and students. If you have information regarding a lab-confirmed or possible* case of COVID-19, please contact your child's campus nurse directly to make a report.
Based on guidance from the San Patricio County Health Dept., the district will NOT notify the public of quarantine cases (for example, related to contact tracing) and will only notify when a confirmed COVID-19 positive case is received/verified.
We hope to receive your continued support as we try to do our part to minimize public interactions and therefore lessen the potential spread of this illness. We also ask that you please consider joining us in following guidelines from medical officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to follow best practices for preventing illness. Please see the list of reminders below:
Practice excellent handwashing procedures, and encourage students to do the same (minimum 20-second scrub with soap all over hands and forearms, every time);
Encourage students to wash hands before every meal, and remind younger students not to place hands (or toys, pencils, etc.) in their mouths;
Help your student remember to cough into his/her elbow or forearm, instead of into his/her hand(s), and away from others as much as possible; and
Please consider promoting wellness by staying home as much as possible and especially if you, or your child, may not be feeling well or develops a fever.
