Dear High Point Academy FW Elementary (White Settlement) Parents/Guardians,

HPA is notifying our FW Elementary (White Settlement) parents/guardians that we received a report late yesterday evening, October 15, 2020, that a staff member was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19. This individual was last on campus Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Due to privacy requirements, the names or details that may identify the individual cannot be released, but the information has been provided to the Tarrant County Public Health Department.

In accordance with our district COVID-19 notification standards, any individuals who were determined to be in close contact with the infected individual have been notified directly and will remain off campus for up to 14 calendar days to ensure they do not have the virus and to minimize any further potential spread.

If your student was on campus on the date indicated above and you have not been contacted as a close contact, then quarantine is not necessary and your student may continue normal activities.

The area where the individual participated has already undergone a cleaning/disinfection. This was done in accordance with the district’s health safety sanitization protocols using disinfectant that meets or exceeds guidelines set by the CDC and approved by the EPA for use in treating COVID-19.

While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, continue to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:

• Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
• Loss of taste or smell
• Cough
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Fatigue
• Headache
• Chills
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Shaking or exaggerated shivering
• Significant muscle pain or ache
• Diarrhea, nausea or vomiting

If your student begins experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage them to stay home and contact your physician. If at any time they are lab-confirmed to have COVID-19, you must contact High Point Academy.

If you have questions, please direct them to your campus principal and we will support them in responding to the best of our abilities.
