Central Heights ISD is working closely with the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) regarding all issuing guidance information related to COVID-19. This information can change quickly and it can often be confusing and contradictory. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this process. The guidelines you read below are our understanding at this time, however they are subject to change.

Spring 2022 at CHISD: 

  • CHISD will not provide or conduct recurring COVID-19 testing at our campus.
  • CHISD will not conduct daily temperature checks as students enter facilities or buses.
  • CHISD will follow State law for the no-mask mandate order. Every person has a choice to wear or not wear masks. Students are asked to bring a mask of their choice if they wish to wear one while on campus.

The district will continue to use daily cleaning practices and procedures to help mitigate the spread of any diseases and ask that students continue to practice good hygiene habits.

If your child is having symptoms, please keep your child at home and contact your school nurse by email. Due to the large amount of calls, we ask that you email your campus nurse. Email is the fastest way to send us information and get a response.
