What does Klein ISD do when there is a COVID-19 case on a campus?

Klein ISD will follow all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines and has established the information that will be shared with staff, students, and families regarding a positive COVID-19 case on campus. 

Each campus administrative team, along with the school nurse, are trained regarding the reporting, investigating, contact tracing, and communication to staff and families of a reported positive COVID-19 case on campus. All staff and families will be notified if a positive COVID-19 case is reported on campus. If an individual is in close contact with an infected individual, a phone call will be made to the student’s parent/caregiver.

If your child is off-campus and you need to report his/her positive COVID-19 case to your child’s campus, please use this COVID-19 reporting form online instead of emailing or calling the campus. This pertains to students who are participating in Klein On-Campus only. The school nurse will follow up with you regarding your report and any necessary next steps. You will use this reporting feature beyond the school hours; otherwise, we ask that you please contact your child’s school nurse to report a positive COVID-19 case of your child. 

Community health data continues to change in our Klein ISD community, and we are continuously monitoring this information and adjusting our plans accordingly. We are sharing these preliminary plans with the understanding that as we get closer to the start of school, plans could change based on conditions.
