COVID-19 Parent Update

October 1, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In keeping with Pleasanton ISD's practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying
all student families that 1 student was test-confirmed to have COVID-19 and was
present on the campus of Pleasanton High School on September 30, 2020. Due to
privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individuals or details
that may identify him or her.

We are working closely with the local health department on this matter and they have
started a case investigation. Any individuals determined to be in close contact with
the infected individual will be directly notified. Those that were in close contact will
remain off campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus and that
there will be no further spread. The rooms have been cleaned and sanitized and
operations at Pleasanton High School will continue as usual. We will keep you
apprised of further updates.

While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:
 
o Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth;
o Sore throat;
o New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with a
   chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline);
o Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or
o New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever.

If you or any member of the Pleasanton High School community does begin
experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to
contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the Pleasanton High School
community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by
contacting Nurse Annette Salinas.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Annette Salinas (830)
569-1250 or visit our website at www.pisd.us.

Sincerely,
 

Dr. Matthew Mann,
Superintendent Pleasanton ISD
