One 5th Grade Cohort Group Transitions to At Home Learning until after Thanksgiving Break on Monday, November 30th
Because of a lab confirmed positive COVID test in a single 5th grade cohort group at Comfort Elementary School, this specific cohort group will transition to At Home Learning according to the “In Person Learning Plan” for Comfort ISD. Students in this cohort group will return to In Person Learning after Thanksgiving break on Monday, November 30th if they are symptom free.
From the Comfort ISD “In Person Learning Plan”
What happens if a student or a teacher tests positive for COVID-19? Will the entire classroom have to quarantine? What if multiple classrooms and students/staff are impacted? Will students be able to participate in At-Home Learning during the quarantine?
Students or staff who test positive for COVID-19 will be sent home to recover. When notification of a possible exposure occurs, in coordination with local health authorities, the campus/district will conduct contact tracing. Based on the results, a determination will be made as to whether an entire classroom or multiple classrooms are required to quarantine. In the event students are required to temporarily quarantine, the education of these students will continue through At-Home Learning for the duration of the quarantine period.
