Weekly COVID 19 Positive Case Notification (March 29 - April 2)

Dear Lincoln Elementary Parents,


During the week of March 29 - April 2, we were notified that 1 individual in our building tested positive for COVID-19. The families of students who have been identified as having close contact with these individuals have been notified.


A close contact is defined as someone within 6 feet of the individual for 15 minutes or longer without protective face coverings or someone who was directly exposed to infectious secretions. We feel it is our responsibility to keep our parents and staff informed as much as possible during this time. Disinfecting of the building continues to happen on a nightly basis. Teachers and staff are diligently cleaning commonly touched surfaces throughout the day according to TEA Guidelines.


We are taking every step possible to stop the spread to others. If you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, we strongly encourage you to consult with your health care provider and communicate with your campus nurse. We will continue to monitor the situation and report required information to the Montgomery County Health Department.


Sincerely,

Lincoln Elementary Administration
