Dear Lewisville ISD Parents:
As we communicated to you yesterday, a resident of The Colony was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas for possible Ebola symptoms. We have recently learned from the Texas Department of Health that the individual’s testing results came back negative.
During this time, we are respecting the family’s privacy and allowing them time to recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with the individual and his family during this stressful experience.
The health and safety of all Lewisville ISD students is our top priority. Our school nurses will continue to remain vigilant in monitoring symptoms related to the Ebola virus and ensuring correct protocols and procedures are followed. As a reminder, the virus is only contagious if a person is experiencing active symptoms. If you have any additional questions, please visit the Denton County Health Department’s website: www.dentoncounty.com/health or contact your family doctor.
LISD will continue to work with the Denton County Health Department to monitor this situation and ensure your child’s health and safety. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
