Tenaha ISD Covid-19 Status Notification

Dear Parents and Staff,

Earlier today, Tenaha ISD received confirmation that two teachers at Tenaha Schools tested positive for COVID-19.   You are receiving this notice, because you or your child was present on the campus in the seven days prior to the individual’s diagnosis of COVID-19.

Tenaha ISD’s Mitigation Plan provides for extensive cleaning and sanitization protocols, as well as social distancing procedures, including the wearing of face masks. As such, CDC guidance provides that the risk of someone contracting COVID-19 from the student is low and this notice is being provided in an abundance of caution. Nevertheless, below is a summary of the involvement of the student on the campus in order for you to assess your family’s potential for exposure. Moreover, if you or your child was determined to have been in close contact with the individual, you will be contacted by the Health Department.
