  • Human Resources Update

    Posted by Kylie Cortez on 10/7/2020
    A new Human Resources Update has been posted on the Human Resources Tab under the following section:
     
    INDIVIDUALS CONFIRMED OR SUSPECTED WITH COVID-19

    Any individuals who themselves either: (a) are lab-confirmed to have COVID-19; or (b) experience the symptoms of COVID-19 (listed below) must stay at home throughout the infection period, and cannot return to campus until the school district screens the individual to determine any of the below conditions for campus re-entry have been met:

    ● In the case of an individual who was diagnosed with COVID-19, the individual may return to school when all three of the following criteria are met:

    1. at least one day (24 hours) have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);

    2. the individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and

    3. at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

    ● In the case of an individual who has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and who is not evaluated by a medical professional or tested for COVID-19, such individual is assumed to have COVID-19, and the individual may not return to the campus until the individual has completed the same three-step set of criteria listed above.

    ●   If the individual has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, the individual must obtain a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for return based on an alternative diagnosis.

  • Safety and Operations Page Update - Fine Arts

    Posted by Kylie Cortez on 9/30/2020

    The following statement has been updated:

    FINE ARTS

    • Large group practice sessions, sectionals, and rehearsals will adhere to social distancing guidelines provided by an authorized entity (e.g., Liberty Hill ISD, TEA, UIL, etc.)
    • Fine arts music private lesson teachers will not be allowed to teach on-site/campus facilities until further guidance is provided by an authorized entity. Private lessons may continue to be conducted virtually if agreed upon between individual families and the lesson teacher. All district guidelines and pricing will continue to be adhered to.
    • Off-campus fine arts performances will only be conducted if specific guidance is provided by an authorized entity (e.g., Liberty Hill ISD, TEA, UIL, etc.).
    • Concerts/performances may be adjusted based on health and safety guidelines provided by an authorized entity (e.g., Liberty Hill ISD, TEA, UIL, etc.) including but not limited to transportation procedures, number of attendees, and the orientation of concerts.
    • All fine arts performances will be streamed online when possible.
    • Booster club meetings should be held virtually to minimize outside exposure to campuses.
    • Surgical-style masks should be worn by all students and teachers as face shields are not as effective in mitigating the risk of aerosol spread for playing and singing.
    • When possible, a mask with a small slit for mouthpiece access should be worn while playing.
    • In instrument groups where a mask cannot physically be worn the mask should be worn over the chin and replaced during periods where the student is not playing. No talking without a mask.
    • Bell covers are highly recommended as "masks" for the instruments. Bell covers can be made of multi-layered high denier nylon material and provide a barrier for aerosols.
    • Masks on students and bell cover “masks” on instruments should be used together for maximum mitigation.
    • Social distancing should occur as suggested by the CDC. Currently, that distance is a 6x6 foot space around each student with the student sitting in the center. Straight lines should be used as curved setups can affect the aerosol movement in a room.
    • Students should sit all facing the same direction, back to front to minimize potential exposure.
    • Trombones should have an additional three feet of distancing making their space 9x6. The player should be seated three feet in front of the backline, leaving an additional six feet in front of them due to the extended nature of the instrument and slide that can be in the extended position.
    • Indoor rehearsal times should be reduced to 30 minutes or less followed by 20-minutes for the HVAC system to change the air indoors with outside air.
    • Spit valves should not be emptied on the floor. Recommend using a puppy pad (or similar) to catch the contents of the spit valve and discard.

  • Safety and Operation Page Update

    Posted by Kylie Cortez on 9/23/2020

    The following statement has been updated:

    REQUIRED ACTIONS IF INDIVIDUALS WITH LAB-CONFIRMED CASES HAVE BEEN IN SCHOOL  
     
    • If an individual who has been in a school is test-confirmed to have COVID-19, the school must notify its local health department, in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, including confidentiality requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). 
    • Schools must close off areas that are heavily used by the individual with the test-confirmed case (student, teacher, or staff) until the non-porous surfaces in those areas can be disinfected, unless more than 7 days have already passed since that person was on campus. 
    • Consistent with school notification requirements for other communicable diseases, and consistent with legal confidentiality requirements, schools must notify all teachers, staff, and families of all students in a school if a test-confirmed COVID-19 case is identified among students, teachers or staff who participate on any on campus activities. 
    • Upon receipt of information that any teacher, staff member, student, or visitor at a school is test-confirmed to have COVID-19, the school must submit a report to the Texas Department of State Health Services via an online form. The report must be submitted each Monday for the prior seven days (Monday-Sunday).

  • Return to Learn Selection - Next Grading Period

    Posted by Kylie Cortez on 9/14/2020

    Parents - Today, Sept 14th through Sept 21st is the window for you to make your child's selection for their learning platform for the 2nd six weeks.

    You only need to log in if you plan to change their learning platform (Remote Learning or In-person) for the coming reporting period. The window closes ten days (Sept 21st) before the start of the coming six weeks. This allows for any schedule adjustments and allows teachers time to review "new" student information.
