This is an important message from the Superintendent of Southwest Schools.



November 17, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In keeping with Southwest Schools’ practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families that an individual(s) who was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 was present on the campus of Mangum Elementary on Tuesday, November 10, 2020. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify him or her.

The local health department has begun a case investigation and will contact any individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individual. Those that were in close contact will remain off campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus, so that there will not be any further spread. We will keep you apprised of further updates.

While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

If you or any member of the Mangum Elementary community does begin experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the Mangum Elementary community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting 713-688-0505.

Sincerely,
Janelle James
CEO/Superintendent of Schools

El departamento de salud local ha iniciado una investigación del caso y se pondrá en contacto con cualquier persona que se determine que haya estado en contacto cercano con el individuo infectado.

Where Education Meets Exploration

Southwest Schools is a choice-based Texas education district with an understanding that true learning is not based on standardized testing or college entrance, but on offering a fulfilling educational experience that can be adjusted for each student.

We understand a successful education is one where boundaries are overcome, opportunities are experienced and possibility is realized. Regardless of how a student got here, from the day they start at Southwest Schools we rally around them with the promise of acceptance, encouragement and success.
