To: The Students of CHISD and Graduating Class of 2020
We all left campus on March 6th, 2020, excitedly awaiting Spring Break and looking forward to a week of relaxation and fun. On the news, we had all heard of the Coronavirus and how it was affecting heavily populated areas, but we all felt that it would never reach the Piney Woods of East Texas. Even extending Spring Break by a week, everyone felt that we would soon be returning to classes and sharing stories of what all we had done during the break. Little did we know at the time, that not only Central Heights, but the entire word would soon be affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Your lives changed. Every day routines such as riding the bus, going to class, eating lunch with friends, afterschool practices and ball games changed to “social distancing, on-line classwork, packets, learning how to quarantine, “Zoom conferencing”, curbside pick-ups and there was even a toilet paper shortage to deal with. Although many of these new experiences were inconvenient, I feel that they will all have a positive impact on how we go about our day to day routines in the future.
My heart goes out to the “Class of 2020”. Your Senior year is supposed to be filled with so many “last time” moments that you never got the opportunity to experience. I hope that the events that we have planned in place of the traditional graduation will recognize and honor you for your accomplishments. I want each of you to know how proud I am of how you have coped with this situation. I know this pandemic will make you stronger as you turn to the next chapter in your life. Who knows, one of you may be the next scientist or doctor that discovers a cure or vaccine for this virus. Where ever your future takes you, please know that you will always hold a special place in the hearts of the Blue Devil Family.

Central Heights ISD Infection Control Plan
Below is the infection control plan we teach students and staff at CHISD. These same measures are encouraged at home for parents to practice with students; to help prevent the spread of everyday illnesses like the common cold, the flu, and all other infectious diseases.
• Wash your hands often with soap; scrubbing for at least 20 seconds, then rinsing with water (ABC song and/or happy birthday song x2). If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick; distance at least 3 feet.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces- personal room housekeeping, bus driver housekeeping. Our CHISD custodial/ housekeeping staff is current on CDC Heightened Surveillance housekeeping 3/2/20, DG, RN.
• Get your flu vaccine now if you have not already done so; a direct statement from our Centers for Disease Control; as a key preventative measure against contracting the flu virus. We are still in our influenza season. Educate yourself on the flu and the increased risks associated with contracting the flu.
• Stay away from shopping malls, movie theaters and other large gathering places if you are sick.
Based on the current information, health officials are recommending local communities and schools should take the same steps to protect against Coronavirus as we take to prevent the spread of everyday illnesses like the common cold or the flu. These health officials believe the risk to our school community is low at this time. TEA Update Feb 6,2020 Commissioner report per Sherri Wright ESC Region7/ DG,RN
