Dear Electra ISD Parents, Students, and Staff:
I am writing to you to inform you that yesterday, Electra ISD was made aware of a positive student COVID-19 test result at Electra High School. The student was last in class on Friday October 23rd. This morning, Electra ISD officials were made aware that several other high school students were in close contact with the positive case student over the weekend. Based on this information, we have 13 students from the high school that are quarantining based on close contact.
After consulting with the Wichita County Health Department, we have determined that the safest thing to do is for Electra Junior-Senior High to switch to “remote learning” for Thursday and Friday (October 29th and 30th). The Electra Junior-Senior High campus will be deep cleaned and disinfected on these days. Both the JH and varsity football games scheduled vs. Munday this week will be cancelled. Meals for Remote Learning may be picked up each day at Electra Elementary between 10:30 and 11:30 am at the outside door of the Elementary Cafeteria. The weekly meal order form is due each morning by 9:00 am. Please go to electraisd.net and under each of the campus headings is the “Weekly Meal Order Form”. You may also call 940-432-3804 for assistance.
As for Electra Elementary School, we plan on having school as scheduled on both Thursday and Friday. Buses will run on time and on normal schedule. Should circumstances change, then we will continue to monitor the situation and notify you as quickly as possible.
We ask that our parents keep reinforcing good hygiene practices with your students. Washing hands regularly, using hand sanitizer, and wearing a mask are all vital to keep the spread of this virus to a minimum. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email us. Thank you!
Ted West, Superintendent
