Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Motley County ISD administration has received information earlier this afternoon that one of our employees has tested positive for Covid-19. The employee was on campus yesterday but not today. We have talked with every person that we know of who came in contact with them yesterday. With that information, we have been in touch with the state health department. We have quarantined one other employee and 4 students. These individuals will not be back on campus until they meet the criteria to be back on campus. We are following Texas Education Agency and State guidelines as related to a positive test for an employee.
The safety of our students and employees is a top priority for Motley County ISD. Please continue to help us provide a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff. If your child has any Covid-19 symptoms, please do not send them to school and contact your doctor or other health care provider. We are taking temperatures of every student and employee each school day. We are making efforts to social distance students whenever possible. We are encouraging secondary students to wear masks during the passing periods between classes. Masks are not mandatory at this time. but we do have lots of students who are wearing masks between classes. If your child would like to wear a mask but does not have one, we have plenty of masks available for them.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
William Cochran Superintendent
Motley County ISD
