Marble Falls ISD is closely monitoring events surrounding the coronavirus. We want to assure you that Marble Falls ISD is monitoring the situation through proven and trustworthy sources: our local health department, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These health officials believe the risk to our school community is low at this time. There are no confirmed cases in Burnet County. Marble Falls ISD will continue to work in conjunction with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and will follow their recommendations along with the Centers for Disease Control regarding communicable disease protocols. Local and federal health authorities indicate that the best ways to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus are the same recommendations for preventing the spread of the flu virus and other common respiratory illnesses.
While a new type of illness can be concerning, we can protect our students, teachers, and the broader community by using simple everyday actions that protect people from other types of respiratory viruses. It is important to note we are still in cold and flu season. Parents, students, and staff members are encouraged to follow basic prevention guidelines against the flu and upper respiratory viruses. Basic prevention guidelines include avoiding contact with people who are sick, washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and using alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Our teachers, school nurses, and staff are working carefully to encourage these simple and effective habits of frequent hand washing, covering every cough or sneeze and cleaning classroom tables/surfaces frequently. This is important not just to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but to help prevent the spread of other infections that can lead to student illness and absences.
As we continue to work with local health officials and monitor this situation, we will provide updates to our community should it become necessary.
Our school nurses work closely to monitor illnesses, such as the flu. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s school nurse.
Confirmed Case of COVID-19 at MFES
It should come as no surprise that the District is making a notification of this type. Completely eliminating all incidences of COVID-19 has proven to be a daunting challenge, and our goal is to work with the community while implementing our mitigation plan in a way that makes it safe for us to continue In-person school along-side the Remote learning option. We are far more likely to achieve the goals we have for our students by working together to support the overall health of our community. I know for some COVID-19 and associated topics are growing tiresome, but as you go about your daily routines, please remain vigilant in adhering to practices that will mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Thank You and Take Care,
Marble Falls ISD
No debería sorprender que el Distrito esté haciendo una notificación de este tipo. Eliminar por completo todas las incidencias de COVID-19 ha demostrado ser un desafío abrumador, y nuestro objetivo es trabajar con la comunidad mientras implementamos nuestro plan de mitigación de una manera que nos permita continuar con la escuela en persona junto con el control remoto. opción de aprendizaje. Es mucho más probable que logremos las metas que tenemos para nuestros estudiantes si trabajamos juntos para apoyar la salud general de nuestra comunidad. Sé que algunos COVID-19 y los temas asociados se están volviendo aburridos, pero a medida que avanza en sus rutinas diarias, permanezca alerta y adhiera a las prácticas que mitigarán la propagación del COVID-19.
Gracias y tenga cuidado,
Marble Falls ISD
