Lewisville ISD Oct. 17 Ebola Statement and FAQ
Dear Lewisville ISD Parents:

This letter is to provide an update from the parent letter sent on Thursday, Oct. 16 regarding the Ebola virus. We want to assure you that no student or staff member has had contact with the Ebola virus. Additionally, no student or staff member was on Frontier Airlines flight 1142 on Oct. 10 or flight 1143 on Oct. 13.

The Denton County Health Department is not currently monitoring any of our 53,000+ students or any one of our 6,000 staff members. Therefore, no student or staff member is at risk to contract the Ebola virus.

We have received requests to release campus names related to the staff member and students who had relatives on the same flights as the healthcare worker. LISD is not at liberty to share this information due to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and FERPA (Federal Education Right to Privacy Act) laws. Because there is no public health risk for our students or staff members, these laws prohibit the district releasing school and student names.

The district recognizes some school districts released campus names and closed for cleaning. These campuses had students or staff members on the flights in question. LISD did not have any student or staff member on these flights.

Beginning Oct. 3, the district implemented intensive sanitation on all high-touch areas at all LISD schools due to concerns regarding the Enterovirus and the upcoming flu season. Both of these viruses are considered highly contagious. Since these protocols were already in place, no additional cleaning requirements are necessary.

We continue to remain in contact with the Denton County Health Department to keep updated on the latest information on all communicable diseases. LISD will continue to follow the appropriate directives from local, state and Federal health agencies.

In an effort to provide additional answers to your questions, here is a link to a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. We will continue to update these questions.

Again, thank you for sharing your concerns. If there is any new information, we will provide updates as needed.

Sincerely,

Office of Public Information and Community Relations
Thank You for Your Feedback
Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding the parent letter we sent about the Ebola virus. We would like to assure you that Lewisville ISD is taking all directives from the Denton County Health Department and will continue to remain in close contact with the health agencies at the local, state and federal levels.
