Rivercrest ISD is reporting a junior high student with Covid-19. However, the student was last present on campus Sept 4; therefore, it has been determined the student was not at school during the symptomatic period, and there are no “close “contacts” as school associated with this case, according to the district report.

Prairiland ISD, Chisum ISD and Cooper ISD are reporting no new cases. As of today, however, Prairiland ISD is listing two high school students and one student at the junior high remain quarantined with the virus. Last week, Cooper ISD reported a student on campus prior to showing symptoms had tested positive for the virus. Although no confirmed cases have been reported, Detroit ISD has a middle school staff member quarantined due to possible exposure elsewhere.
