COVID > COVID-19 Dashboard
Eanes ISD will update the COVID-19 dashboard to further transparency and share active, positive COVID-19 cases on our campuses. Notifications will be sent to individual classes/extracurriculars/buses when there is a confirmed positive case. We will update the dashboard for all campuses and the district daily, excluding weekends and holidays. Positive cases reported after 5pm will be reflected the following day.
A positive case indicates a staff member or student who was onsite in a district facility has tested positive for COVID-19. Per the CDC, those who test positive for COVID must, regardless of vaccination status, stay home for five days, and, if no symptoms or symptoms are resolving after five days, the individual is cleared to return. Once that happens, the case is removed from the dashboard.
As partners working together to maintain a healthy school environment, we ask parents and employees to report confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 to the school district. Parents should report positive cases to the school nurse; employees should report to HR.
At this time, the District will administer a COVID-19 Dashboard showing cases that are reported. The District is required to report positive cases to Austin Public Health and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
Once a positive case is reported to Eanes ISD, the campus COVID team will identify and send notification to suspected close contacts.
- For a positive case at the elementary level, students assigned to the same homeroom will be considered a possible close contact due to the nature of recess, transitions, collaborative work and movement in the elementary setting;
- Secondary school COVID teams will identify close contacts when possible and send notifications to individuals where a positive case is confirmed in a classroom and/or extra-curricular group. When it is not possible to confidently determine a close contact, we will notify the whole class;
- Notifications will be sent to riders on the bus who are identified as close contacts.
