KISD Continues Sanitation Efforts
Updates03/13/2020 - 1:01 p.m.:
Killeen ISD is in continuous communication with officials regarding COVID-19. As this is a fluid situation, Killeen ISD will make informed decisions based on guidance and recommendations from the CDC School Decision Tree, Bell County Health Department and Fort Hood Officials.
At this time CLASSES WILL RESUME ON MONDAY, March 16, 2020, as originally planned. We are aware of the first presumptive positive case of COVID19 in Bell County.
If this changes, we will alert families through a Blackboard message, our district website, local media, and district social media.
03/12/2020 - We have been cleaning all high-touch areas including desks, keyboards, hand-rails, doorknobs, water fountains, desks, etc. as well as spraying a hospital-grade disinfectant throughout our campuses for several weeks now.
We are also in continuous communication with the Bell County Health District, the CDC and officials at Fort Hood to coordinate our efforts. While there have not been any confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in Bell County, we have been taking precautions and will continue to do so as decisions in and around our return to school from Spring Break approaches.
This is a fluid situation, so any changes to the regular schedule will be appropriately communicated.
The safety of our students, staff, and their families is our number one priority.
02/26/2020 - Killeen ISD is proactively working to curtail the spread of flu and flu-like symptoms on our campuses to maintain the safety of students, staff and the families of KISD. It is our goal to keep you informed of our plan and ensure a safe learning environment is maintained for our students during the peak flu season.
Our facilities team is using hospital-grade sanitizer to thoroughly clean our campuses with an emphasis on touch zones which include doorknobs, railings, backs of chairs, water fountains and desks. We are continuing to supply classrooms with hand sanitizer and encouraging students and staff to take appropriate hygiene measures. The district is supplying campuses with additional sanitizer wipes to regularly clean all technology devices including tablets, iPads, keyboards and monitors.
The district is coordinating with Fort Hood and the Center for Disease Control to ensure our proactive measures are aligned with recommended plan of action for flu and flu-like illnesses.
Additional information about the flu can be found at the Center for Disease Control website, www.cdc.gov/flu/
The safety and security of our students and staff is our number one priority at Killeen ISD.
