UPDATE: October 13, 2020 12:48 p.m.

Four days after Holiday ISD’s Varsity Football team and 160 band students were sent home to quarantine until October 19 due to COVID-19 concerns, the superintendent adjusted the return date for these students Monday night.

After working with additional health officials and schools who had been in similar situations it was determined that not all students who had been sent home to quarantine until next Monday need to continue to do so, according to Holliday ISD Superintendent Cody Carroll in a letter to parents.

Carroll said the only students who will need to quarantine until October 19 are those deemed to have close contact with infected individuals as set by TEA and UIL guidelines.

The district is finalizing tracing and will be calling individuals that have been deemed close contact.

If you do not receive a call from the district you may return to campus starting October 14.

Additionally Laura Weatherread, Food Service Director, has requested that if your student is in remote learning and would like to pick up breakfast and/or lunch for your student please contact the cafeteria by 8 a.m. daily at 940-583-4494.

Meals are currently free to every student.

Breakfast can be picked up from 9-9:30 am and lunch from 11-11:30 am daily at the cafeteria door in the back of the elementary.

Weatherread is asking that you do not leave your vehicle, staff will be watching for parents during stated times.
