Health Services » COVID-19 INFORMATION


  • Parents/guardians of students are expected to take their child's temperatures daily before arriving at school. Staff will also take their temperature prior to arriving on campus.  Anyone with a fever of 100 or higher should not come to school or a SISD facility.
  • Students and staff should also prescreen themselves for any of the following symptoms prior to coming to school:  
    • *Please note these are guidelines. Your child may be sent home for reasons other than the ones stated below.
    • Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Loss of taste or smell
    • Cough
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Shortness of breath
    • Headache
    • Chills
    • Sore throat
    • Shaking or exaggerated shivering
    • Significant muscle pain or aches
    • Diarrhea
  • Students and staff may be subject to temperature checks for verification, especially if they are feeling ill or suspected of having symptoms during the school day.

    The parent will be expected to come for the child within one hour or a reasonable time agreed upon with the nurse or school personnel. In the event the parent/guardian or designated contact cannot be reached, a parent conference may be held at the earliest opportunity to establish correct contact numbers, school district expectations, and parental responsibilities.

  • All staff will monitor students and refer to the clinic if symptoms are present. According to the assessment of the clinic staff, a treatment plan will be determined. Parents will be contacted to pick up students who are unable to remain at school, and the student's return to school plan will be discussed.
  • Students and staff will be required to notify Sanger ISD if:
    • they have come into close contact with an individual who is lab-confirmed with COVID-19
    • they themselves have COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Close contact is defined by TEA as:
      • being directly exposed to infectious secretions (eg - being coughed or sneezed on while not wearing a mask or face shield); or
      • being within six feet for a cumulative duration of fifteen minutes, while not wearing a mask or face shield.
      If either occurred at any time the infected person was infectious.  Individuals are presumed to be infectious two days prior to symptom onset or, in the case of asymptomatic individuals who are lab-confirmed positive with COVID-19, two days prior to the confirming lab test.
