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 and/or close contact 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 contract 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 tehri student was exposed or tested positive outside of the school. Many of these students did not even report back to campus. We appreciate these parents helping us stay safe as possible at school.
