KATY ISD COVID-19 MITIGATION PLAN UPDATE PHASE 2 PROTOCOL CLARIFICATIONS (EFFECTIVE MARCH 29, 2021) OUTSIDE FOOD OR GIFT DELIVERIES TO CAMPUS

Elementary and secondary campuses will communicate their Pre-COVID campus specific procedure(s) for instructional day delivery of outside food and personal items for students. This will vary by campus and parents are asked to refer to their student’s campus communication for clarification regarding drop-off of student food or personal items. Phase 1 and Phase 2 safety protocols remain in effect and will still require adherence.


TJH Guidelines:

DELIVERIES

Allowed deliveries: homework, school projects, school supplies, athletic gear or uniforms, band/orchestra instruments, textbooks, glasses, keys, up to $25 cash, and other items related to school instruction or activities.

Not Allowed: letters or notes, flowers, balloons, gifts, sealed packages, food or beverages (see note 1 and 2), medication (see note #1), and cash greater than $25 (see note 3).

Notes:

  1. Parents or guardians are allowed to deliver food, beverages, or medication for only their student(s). Any food deliveries must be coordinated by the student and the parent or guardian delivering the food. The front office will not handle food.

  2. Commerial food deliveries and commercial food delivery services such as Door Dash will not be allowed.

  3. Cash in amounts greater than $25 will be accepted, but must go directly to the teacher/coach/program director rather than the student.

KVA ATTENDANCE REPORTING

If your student is going to be absent please report the absence daily to the ADA clerk by one of the options below:


Online Absence Form: Absence Reporting Form

Phone: 281-234-2413

Email: MercedesCFonsecaChavez@katyisd.org

All excuse notes must be submitted within 5 days of absence to be excused.


If reporting technology issues please note it must be reported within 24hrs of the absence in order to be excused. The update was sent on December 11th’s Smart ReStart and December 13th’s KVA Update.


*NEW* KVA Attendance

Effective January 5, 2021, if your student is unable to attend a class period or full day of learning in KVA due to a Technology/Internet/Power Outage, a parent/guardian of the student should notify the Attendance Office of an absence with 24 hours of the absence. The absence will not be updated to excused unless written/phone call notification has been made by the parent/guardian to the Campus Attendance Office.


***For attendance corrections: Please contact the teacher as the first point of contact regarding a student's presence/absence/tardiness in class, especially if you ha

ve received an automated call from the District. Contact the teacher the same day if possible.
