During a “normal” year Graham ISD has approximately ninety people on the substitute teacher roster. This year, we have fifty. As you may be aware, Graham ISD has seen several COVID-19 positive cases with students and staff over the past two weeks. Our lab-confirmed cases can be viewed on our Return to School Google Site . Additional staff and students have been sent home due to exhibiting any one of the COVID-19 symptoms. Health safety protocols require these individuals to quarantine or receive physician clearance to return to school. Although teachers who are not ill, but are quarantined, are able to provide instruction via a remote setting, this is placing an extreme strain on our ability to place an adult in the classroom to monitor while the teacher instructs. This is particularly challenging for Graham High School and Graham Junior High as the majority of our quarantined adults work at those two campuses. Graham ISD is offering a Substitute Teacher Training Workshop on Friday, September 25, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Graham Learning Center, 701 Tennessee. Please contact Julie Elrod at 940-549-0595 to register to attend. If someone would like to volunteer to assist with monitoring classes but does not want to be on the sub list we can complete the volunteer packet and use your services. Contact Robert Loomis or Julie Elrod at 940-549-0595.

Parents/Guardians and Staff, Per requirements of the Texas Education Agency, the district is required to do the following regarding all Test-Confirmed COVID-19 cases in school: Notify its local health department, in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including confidentiality requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Schools must close off areas that are heavily used by the individual with the test-confirmed case (student, teacher, or staff) until the non-porous surfaces in those areas can be disinfected unless more than 7 days have already passed since that person was on campus. Consistent with school notification requirements for other communicable diseases, and consistent with legal confidentiality requirements, schools must notify all teachers, staff, and families of all students in a school if a test-confirmed COVID-19 case is identified among students, teachers, or staff who participate on any on-campus activities. Upon receipt of information that any teacher, staff member, student, or visitor at a school is test-confirmed to have COVID-19, the school must submit a report to the Texas Department of State Health Services via an online form. A Today, we provided notifications to the parents/guardians and to the staff of Graham High School and Pioneer Elementary regarding one staff member on each campus being COVID-19 positive. Attached is a copy of the Graham ISD Re-Entry Plan Flow Chart that we use in making decisions regarding COVID-19. Due to both staff members wearing masks, we have avoided having to quarantine large numbers of staff and students. I encourage all to be even more diligent regarding wearing PPE's and following the hand sanitizing procedures.
