The Kerrville Independent School District has released their updated COVID-19 protocols which will continue to be modified based on changes to the public health guidance from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and/or other authorities. Masks are strongly recommended at all campuses, but not required, good hygiene practices are encouraged, continuous disinfecting of “high contact” areas will continue along with the practice of social distancing (3 ft.) when feasible.

Upon parent request, students that are living with a COVID-19 positive person can be tested on campus if a parent or guardian allows, and the test will be administered by trained KISD personnel, available by appointment on most campuses.

COVID positive symptomatic people must self-isolate until 10 days have passed, remain fever free for 24 hours without fever suppressing medication and other symptoms must be gone before returning to campus. COVID positive asymptomatic people must self-isolate for 10 days after the day they tested positive before going back to school.

Symptomatic people who have not been tested must test negative for COVID-19, or wait 10 days from when the first symptoms appeared, be fever free for 24 hours without fever suppressing medication and all other symptoms have improved, before returning to campus.

People who are living with a COVID-19 positive person are required to isolate and may not attend school or work until they have remained asymptomatic, 10 days have passed since exposure without testing or 7 days have passed since exposure along with a negative COVID-19 test after day 4. People in close contact with a COVID-19 positive person at school or in the community will not be required to quarantine but should be closely monitored by a medical professional.

A student’s respective campus will notify a parent or guardian regarding their student’s proximity to a positive COVID-19 case, and the KISD COVID-19 Dashboard will be updated at least twice a week. Texas Department of State Health Services will receive notification of positive cases, as well.

Remote conferencing is now available for students that are confirmed for COVID-19 or are required to quarantine because they are living with a COVID-19 positive person. Remote conferencing can provide 2-4 hours per day of online support, and districts can offer up to 20 days per school year of Remote Conferencing virtual support. Students are counted present for days they engage in Remote Conferencing.
