Dear Ennis High School Families,
On Tuesday evening, December 8, 2020, the Ennis School District was notified by the Madison County Health Department that an Ennis High School student tested positive for COVID-19. This positive test was confirmed on December 8, 2020.
Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, December 9th, students in grades 9-12 will transition to remote learning. This will allow custodial staff adequate time for cleaning and disinfecting the school facilities as well as enough time for the Madison County Health Department and school officials to thoroughly investigate who may meet the CDC’s definition of a close contact. We are working extremely hard to return to in-person instruction as soon as possible. All school activities 9-12 are canceled until further notice. School officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information immediately to families when it becomes available.
During this remote learning period, it is important to know that all 9-12 students are expected to attend each class remotely and follow their class bell schedule as if they were at school. Students need to check their Google Classroom for information from their instructors and reach out to them if they have any questions. We understand that this is short notice and we do apologize for any inconvenience.
As a reminder, remote learning at this time is only for grades 9-12. It will be business as usual for grades K-8.
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.
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
