COVID-10 - Test Results - Positive
What do I do if my student tests positive for COVID
See the campus protocol below, for how you need to report your student's positive test. This will ensure minimal disruption to your student's schedule.
If your student tests positive for COVID-19 or has been directly exposed, please follow the steps below ASAP.
**Notify Leaman as soon as you are aware of possible exposure and/or if your student has tested positive.
**We will respond with the next steps to keep your student as connected to their learning, during this temporary quarantine period.
Your student will have FULL access to their Teacher's Canvas pages, plus a zoom link to access the designated "REMOTE CONFERENCING TEACHER", to help assist during this temporary period. Each Teacher's Canvas page will contain notes and/or PowerPoint will be posted regarding what was taught that day.

COVID Notification Emails:
DLJH will continue to follow LCISD COVID Protocols by pushing out the email notifications that you are currently receiving when a positive case is reported by a parent. Please understand that we cannot reveal a student's identity, nor specific class, due to the confidentiality. We are not contact tracing this year, so there is no mandatory quarantining on the school side. Many of these cases that we are reporting, are from parents doing their due diligence of reporting when their student was exposed or tested positive outside of the school. We appreciate these parents helping us stay safe as possible at school.
