Campus Safety Protocol

Spring Creek ISD continues to monitor COVID-19 developments and will update its guidance, as needed, to keep students and staff safe.

The following are Spring Creek ISD's current procedures and notification processes for positive COVID-19 cases:

  • Individuals (or parents/guardians, in the case of a student) are urged to self-report the diagnosis by completing our online SCISD COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form.  Click here to access the form.
  • Individuals who test positive must remain home for ten (10) days.  The isolation period begins (Day 1) the day after symptom onset or the day after the individual receives a positive test.  The individual can return to school on the eleventh (11th) day.  Students remaining at home will be treated as if they are absent from any other illness.  There will be no synchronous learning option made available, but students may be provided access to lessons and materials by requesting such with the campus principal.  Arrangements will be made to accommodate parents who wish to receive and submit their child's lessons and assignments during their absence.  The Texas Education Agency's guidelines that allowed for remote learning have expired.
  • Spring Creek ISD will notify parents of possible exposure in their child's classroom.  Parents will receive a notification any time a student or teacher in their child's classroom has reported a positive COVID-19 test result.  
  • Individuals who may have been in contact with a COVID-positive individual but have not exhibited COVID symptoms are not required to quarantine.  These individuals are, however, encouraged to monitor closely for COVID-like symptoms, and should symptoms present themselves, the individual should remain home and consult their physician.
  • If a household family member has tested positive for COVID-19, parents may opt to keep students in that household home from school for ten (10) days.  Likewise, SCISD employees in that household may also opt to remain home from work for ten (10) days.  If the student or employee is symptom-free, they may remain home during the positive individual's 10-day isolation period.  If the student or employee displays COVID-like symptoms, they should contact their health provider and remain home for an additional ten (10) days from symptom onset and until symptom free.
  • Returning to school after quarantine:  Students or employees who have been quarantined due to a positive test or quarantined due to potential contact with a COVID-positive individual may return ten (10) days after symptom onset (in the case of a positive result) or ten (10) days after contact with a positive case, provided that they are free of COVID-like symptoms.  
  • Students who remain home due to a positive COVID-19 result or because of their exposure to a positive case will be considered absent.  The Texas Education Agency made exceptions in its attendance policies for COVID-related absences during the 2020-2021 school year, but those exceptions were not applied to the 2021-2022 school year.  Families are urged to communicate with Spring Creek School when a student is absent for COVID-related reasons by providing documentation in the form of a parent or doctor's note.  Spring Creek ISD will continue to work with our families to make sure that their child has school work to help continue learning while at home, and when the student returns, we will help the student close any learning gaps that occur as a result of missing instructional time.  

Additional information:

  • Visitors are allowed on campus, including parents or guardians who want to visit their child for lunch.  
  • Those entering Spring Creek ISD facilities will no longer be required to complete any screening.  Those coming to our campus are encouraged to perform a self-screening of COVID-19 symptoms before arriving.
  • Parents and guardians may drop off items for their children.
