PRESS RELEASE — We were made aware Wednesday, February 26, 2020, that a student at Little Cypress Intermediate may have been exposed to the Coronavirus.  We took immediate action, contacted the parent and removed the child from the campus, strictly as a precautionary measure. During our investigation, we communicated with local and state health departments, the Texas Education Agency, and local law enforcement.

Our findings, with the assistance of the CDC/health department, were that there was no exposure nor threat to our students and staff. The District has received the all-clear from the local health department.

The Orange County Superintendents met to discuss processes and procedures in the event of actual exposure to our students or staff. Additionally, we participate in a weekly statewide operations Coronavirus update with the Department of State Health Services.

If you feel you are experiencing Coronavirus symptoms seek medical attention before returning to school. For a list of possible symptoms, please refer to the CDC website at
