Parents ! We need your HELP and Support!

Parents as I am sure you are aware we have experienced a sharp uptick in COVID cases. We are asking for your support in the following ways:


1. Mask wearing remains required and now more than ever we need to encourage proper mask wearing (covering the nose and mouth) at all times. Please send students to school with a mask as we have limited supply of masks.


2. Monitor students for symptoms, fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, loss of taste and/or smell. Keep your child home if they are sick. Test is needed. Spring ISD has testing available click here for more info.

Spring ISD Steps to Follow If Your Student Becomes Ill:

  1. Should your student show any symptoms of COVID-19, please consider getting them tested. Click here to register for a free test at a site near you, or refer to the list above for Spring ISD-specific sites.
  2. If your child tests negative, they can return to school as long as they’ve been fever-free for 24 hours without any medication.
  3. If your child tests positive, you need to contact your campus and report the case to the school nurse, who will alert the campus principal and our Emergency Management and School Safety team.
  4. We also recommend testing for the entire family of any student who tests positive. Unvaccinated siblings/parents/household members should quarantine at home for five days because they are considered close contacts per CDC guidelines. Vaccinated siblings/parents/household members do not need to quarantine, but should watch for symptoms and wear a mask.
  5. Vaccinated siblings may come to school, as long as they are fever free, have no symptoms and wear a mask.
  6. Your COVID-19 positive student will not be able to return to school until at least 5 days have passed since the positive test was taken and the student is fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications (fever is a temperature of 100° F or higher), and other symptoms have improved.
  7. After 5 days from the date that the student took the COVID test that yielded a positive result, the student may return to campus on the 6th day, but should report first to the nurse for a temperature check or to present a doctor’s note/release.
  8. If your COVID-19 positive student is well enough, they may do and submit make-up work assigned by their teachers.
  9. Close contact students quarantining at home also have the option of completing and submitting make-up work to keep up with school assignments.
