Campbell ISD has sent the following letter to parents, students, and staff of the school district.
Dear Campbell ISD Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff.
In keeping with Campbell ISD’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families that a student who was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 was present on the campus of Campbell High School on Thursday, August 20. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify the student. We contacted the individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individual. Those in close contact will remain off-campus for up to 14 days to ensure that they do not have the virus so that there will not be any further spread. We will keep apprised of new updates.
While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask you to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:
1. A temperature of 100.4 degrees F or higher when taken by mouth
2. Sore throat
3. New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or students with
chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, change in their cough from baseline)
4. Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain or
5. New onset of severe headache, especially with fever
If you have any of the above, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the Campbell ISD school community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting the campus nurse or principal.
I cannot emphasize the importance of everyone monitoring their health and contacting their primary care physician if they believe they are developing symptoms. We all must continue to work together to ensure our community members remain safe and healthy. Please know that Campbell ISD will continue to monitor the situation and will provide additional information as needed.
Dr. Denise Morgan,
