Notification of confirmed COVID-19 case at JR
Posted on 02/08/2021

In keeping with district practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all JR Elementary students, staff and guests that one student has tested positive for COVID-19. The student was last on campus on 02/04/2021. The nurse reports that COVID symptoms can be very similar to seasonal allergy symptoms. She encourages all students and staff members experiencing those symptoms to be cautious. All students and staff have access to free testing by appointment. For more information, please see the district website at www.calcoisd.org.

CCISD has reached out to faculty, staff and students who may have been exposed through close contact. Maintenance thoroughly sanitized the building using the E-Mist application over the weekend. 

Please stay at home if a student/ family member has symptoms for COVID-19. Also, if a student or any individual in the home is waiting on COVID test results, please stay at home. Any of the following symptoms may indicate a possible COVID-19 infection. If a student has any of these symptoms, please keep them at home and call the school nurse.

This list does not represent every possible symptom.

An Education Task Force has been created to provide guidance for schools in cases such as these. The Bexar County Region 8 public health authority will conduct an investigation by making contact with the individual and any “close contacts”. 

 

Region 8 phone calls will have a (210) area code. If a student or household member begins to experience any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage students, staff or family members connected with JR Elementary to please notify the school if a household member is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19.

If you or any member of the JR community begins to experience any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the JR community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting 361-552-3317.
