SCISD reported Wednesday that a student and an employee on the Middle School campus have tested positive for COVID-19. Superintendent Robert Gibson said the student has not been in school all week. An SCISD announcement, released before the report of the student testing positive, said:

“In collaboration with local health authorities and consideration of relevant state and federal health guidelines, the District has determined that it is best to continue regular on-campus instruction and school-related activities. SCISD will notify parents if your child was in close contact with anyone affected. If you have not received a call from SCISD, your child is not affected. The campus has conducted thorough sanitation of all areas used by the affected person and will continue to follow our safety and sanitation guidelines. The district will continue to monitor and mitigate this ongoing situation.”
