Dear Community Learning Center Families, 

We are writing to share that one individual who most recently was on the CLC campus on Tuesday, January 26, has received a positive test for COVID-19. When there is close contact, school administrators notify close contacts’ parents. All CLC parents and staff are receiving this notice. Therefore, your child was not a close contact unless you were individually notified by the campus prior to receiving this email.  

The district follows TEA guidance in the event of positive cases:

  • Areas heavily used by the positive test individual are sanitized.
  • The individuals with the positive tests will remain off campus until re-entry criteria has been met a.) at least 10 calendar days since symptoms appeared, and b.) at least 24 hours since recovery (for example no fever without meds), and c.) symptoms have significantly improved (cough/shortness of breath). A student who must remain off campus will be an online learner if they feel well for school work.
  • Close contacts are advised to remain home for 10 calendar days, or 7 calendar days with a negative PCR test, in alignment with new guidelines from TEA. Online learning will be available immediately for close contact students whose families wish to keep them home.

Humble ISD appreciates everyone’s help in providing the best educational environment through these proactive measures:

  • daily self screening for symptoms prior to coming onto campus;
  • reporting to the school if one tests positive, comes in close contact with someone who tests positive, or experiences symptoms of COVID-19. Parents of a student who tests positive should complete humbleisd.net/reportcovid19student
  • physical distancing; and practicing excellent hand hygiene;
  • and following the Governor’s face covering order. 

Thank you to the family for coming forward to work with our school to keep everyone safe and healthy. Optional, local testing is available for Humble ISD students: 

  • 24 Hour Covid RT-PCR Laboratory can test Humble ISD students who attend school in-person or virtually. This test is the RT-PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test, which is considered the most reliable test for detecting COVID-19. 
  • Humble ISD students who attend at least one class on campus are eligible to request a rapid antigen test through the online Student COVID-19 Curbside Test Request Form.

More detailed information on student testing options can be found on the Humble ISD website.

Sincerely,

Christie Speights
Principal
