Assistant Superintendent Donna Porter said there will be no at-home learning for 2021-22. Dunlap said the district would also continue to offer the vaccine to students and staff who want it, and they’d continue encouraging students to use hand sanitizers and good hand hygiene, as well as continue more rigorous cleaning practices. “If there is anybody that does need to go to at-home learning, what the decision on that would be is they would become homebound — and they have to qualify for homebound through their doctor has to allow them and stay that it’s necessary for them to be homebound.”
Temperature checks on bus riders will also continue, Dunlap said. That includes not requiring face coverings for students and staff — though Dunlap said any person who wants to wear a face mask will be allowed to do so and the district would have face masks on hand for anyone who wants one.
“Children with fever are not going to be allowed to get on the bus,” he said. “If the parent is not home when the child tries to board the bus, then we will require them to sit in a special place on the bus, wear a mask and be restricted and isolated from the other students as much as possible. Then when they get to school, they’re going to go to the nurse’s office and we will contact the parents the way we do normally. So we’re going to continue to do that.” “We’re going to return everything to normal, normal as it was prior to COVID-19,” Dunlap said.
Extracurricular activities will be following guidelines set forth by UIL, Dunlap said.
“We’re going to say anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 must stay at home and seek medical advice before they come to school,” Dunlap said. “Students with symptoms will be sent to the nurse, and parents will be notified. We’re going to follow all the CDC guidelines and other governing bodies when it comes to quarantine and isolation guidelines.” Other COVID protocols will continue as well, Dunlap said, including limiting visitors and not allowing visitors who have COVID-19 symptoms. Students with COVID symptoms will be asked to stay home.
