Navasota ISD’s priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. Following the global COVID-19 pandemic that drastically impacted normal school operations, we are pleased to return to a more traditional plan for the 2023-2024 school year. Navasota ISD will continue to monitor updates and guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and federal, state, and local officials related to COVID-19.
Navasota ISD will follow the one state requirement related to COVID-19: If any student, staff, or volunteer has been in school and reports testing positive for COVID-19, District staff will report the positive case to our local health department and to the Texas Department of State Health Services.
At this time, Navasota ISD will not be conducting contact tracing or reporting positive cases of students, staff, and campus volunteers on the NISD COVID District dashboard.
INDIVIDUALS WHO TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 (STAFF/STUDENT)
Everyone, regardless of vaccination status:
- Stay home for 5 days.
- If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
- If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.
State rules require schools to exclude students with certain illnesses from school for certain periods of time. For example, if a child has a fever over 100.0 F, he or she must stay out of school until fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications. Students with diarrheal illnesses must stay home until they are diarrhea-free without the use of diarrhea-suppressing medications for 24 hours. A full list of conditions for which the school must exclude children can be obtained from the school nurse.
