Dear Ennis Mustang Families,
On Wednesday, November 11, 2020, the Ennis School District was notified by the Madison County Health Department that a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. This positive test was confirmed on November 11, 2020. On Thursday, November 12, 2020, the Ennis School District was notified by the Madison County Health Department that another staff member tested positive for COVID-19. This positive test was confirmed on November 12, 2020.
These positive cases were reported in middle and high school. According to the Madison County Health Department and the Ennis School District, students in the middle school do not meet the CDC’s definition of a close contact. It was determined that a few students in the high school do meet the CDC’s definition of a close contact and have either been notified by the Ennis School District or the Madison County Health Department.
If you have received this letter and have not been notified by the Ennis School District or the Madison County Health Department, then school is business as usual. Just a reminder that remote learning is the method of instruction at this time for grades 9-12 for 11/12 and 11/13.
Please note that we will strictly adhere to privacy laws during a health pandemic outbreak and will not disclose identifiable information of those who have been affected. We recommend that any person who feels sick should stay home and seek out their medical provider for specific instructions.
School officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information if and when it becomes available.
We are taking these positive cases seriously and using this time to prepare the school for a safe return. We remind families to be patient and understanding during this challenging time. Our priority is to keep our school doors open and need your cooperation in helping make that happen. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
Ennis Schools Superintendent
