COVID-19: CASE COUNTS & COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS
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 12, 2022):
Ingleside ISD 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.
If an individual who has been in a school is test-confirmed to have COVID-19, the San Patricio County Health Department will be notified, in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, including confidentiality requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family Educations Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Although it is not a requirement as outlined in the Texas Education Agency's Public Health Guidance, published on August 1, 2022, district case count updates will still be posted weekly on Fridays at the end of the school day in efforts to remain transparent with students, staff, parents, and our community.
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 if you or your child may not be feeling well or develops a fever.
