Lipscomb's COVID Procedures

Our school administrators will inform parents when there is a lab positive COVID-19 case on campus. When that occurs, they will send out a voice mail to parents as well as a letter via email. These are the pertinent clarifications to the questions parents have asked in relation to the positive case notifications:


1. What does “close contact” mean? According to the Dallas ISD guidelines, “close contact” means your child has been within six feet of an infected person for 15 consecutive minutes or more with or without a mask. With our teachers’ hard work to keep kids six feet apart, this should stay at a minimum.


2. What is the timeliness of Health Services in reaching out to parents if a child has been contact-traced to an infected person? As soon as the campus receives a notification about a positive case, Nurse Wilcox and Dr.Sandoval would determine the contact-tracing by looking over seating charts to determine closeness, then interview the teachers, and any other adults involved to rule out close contacts. Then, Nurse Wilcox, serving under Health Services will contact parents if their child was identified as a close contact. This is done very quickly after they receive the positive case information.

Special PTA Meeting

Monday, Nov. 9th, 5:30-6:30pm

This is an online event.


We will have a special PTA Meeting to vote on a budget amendment. We would like to buy 3 water dispensers to replace our current water fountains so that our students and staff can have access to bottle fillers and filtered water throughout the building. To do this, we need to amend the budget to set money aside for this purchase.


Please join the Zoom meeting to cast your vote!
