LTISD Protocols for Screening
***Please remember to screen your children each morning before school.***
If your child has any ONE of the symptoms on the screening list, they should stay home.
★ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
★ Loss of taste or smell
★ Difficulty breathing
★ Shortness of breath
★ Sore throat
★ Shaking or exaggerated shivering
★ Muscle or body aches
★ Congestion or runny nose
★ Nausea or vomiting
Please know that children who come to school with symptoms will be sent home.
It is important that everyone become familiar with the re-entry protocol
Re-entry protocol applies to students who experience symptoms at home OR if they are sent home from school.
● at least one day (24 hours) has passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);
● the individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and
● at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
The 10 days must be observed even if symptoms only last a short while and the child did not have fever.
If your student wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, you must either:
● obtain a medical professional’s note (with date) clearing the student for the return based on an alternative diagnosis; or
● obtain an acute infection test (at a physician’s office, approved testing location found at tdem.texas.govc/covid19/, or another site) that comes back negative for COVID-19.
In-Person vs. Remote Learning for your Child
If your student will be participating in remote learning for the second grading period and you want to change their instruction to in-person for the third grading period, you must fill out the Instructional Status Change form linked below.
The third grading period begins Tuesday, January 5th, parents are asked to make the appropriate selection using the Instructional Status Change Form posted on our website by Friday, December 4th.
A listing of Frequently Asked Questions and other resources regarding our learning options are available on the School Year 2020-2021: Learning. Transformed section of our website.
