Top Questions Answered:
My child was exposed to COVID… Now what??
If your Tays student was exposed to COVID, please contact the nurse’s office for guidance and next steps. When and where the exposure happened can make a big difference in what you should do next. Testing too soon can result in a false negative test result, so it’s important to know the optimal time to test. Not sure? We are here, and we are more than happy to help. If you have a positive case in your home, your student will need to quarantine for a period of 14 days before returning to campus. Your student will be able to access their assignments through Canvas while they are home. If you are unsure about this process, please contact us for guidance.
My child has COVID… Now what??
If your Tays student has tested positive for COVID, please contact the nurse’s office to inform us so that we can begin our contact tracing and so that we may guide you on your student’s return to school process. Also, and this is very important, your student must fill out the COVID-19 self-reporting tile on the My Katy Cloud. Please make sure your student is logged in under their ID. When they fill out the tile, please make sure they are accurate in filling out the date that they were last on campus and when filling out the information about their close contacts. Close contacts are students that they sit with at lunch and anyone they may have been around at school without their mask on.
