PRESS RELEASE – We were made aware Wednesday, February 26, 2020, that an employee may have been exposed to the Coronavirus. We took immediate action and removed the person 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 there was no exposure nor threat to our campuses. 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. Additionally, we participate in a weekly statewide operations Coronavirus update with the Department of State Health Services.
