The employee worked on the PES campus June 15th-17th and has not been in district facilities since. While on campus, the employee was not in contact with summer school students.
On June 19th, another district employee had a fever and was tested for COVID-19. While waiting for results, the employee quarantined. On June 23, 2020, the employee received positive test results. The last contact that employee had with district facilities was Monday night, June 15th, at the Board of Trustees’ meeting.
On June 24th, it was reported to the district that the family member of a BISD student received positive COVID-19 test results. That student attended summer workouts June 15th-17th. Workouts have not been held since June 17th.
In an abundance of caution, all extra-curricular activities including band, cheerleading, and athletic workouts were canceled for the week of June 22nd-26th.
