Highland Park ISD COVID Dashboard
This page provides timely and transparent lab-confirmed COVID-19 active case information related to Highland Park ISD students and staff members. The district began reporting this information Aug. 18 with the start of the 2021-22 school year. Numbers represent active cases reported to the district. In an effort to be fully transparent, HPISD has added to the table active cases reported to the district prior to the first day of school.
Positive test results indicate that an individual is not permitted to participate in any in-person or on-campus events and activities until they have completed the isolation period (10 days) and met the established Requirements for Re-Entry guidelines set by state and local health authorities. Per UIL guidelines, students who are involved in UIL athletics or marching band and are confirmed with COVID-19 must receive clearance from a physician prior to returning to participate in UIL activities.
HPISD schools will notify parents and staff members if there has been a possible exposure to the virus in a class or during a school activity. Parents of students who have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19 may opt to keep their students at home during the recommended stay-at-home period. Students and staff members who have been exposed to a positive COVID-19 case will not be required to be quarantined.
Reported cases will be communicated via email directly to staff members and parents at each affected campus. Numbers will also be posted to the below table when HPISD is notified of lab-confirmed cases. Highland Park ISD reports all positive cases to the Dallas County Health & Human Services Department and relies on their guidance and recommendations regarding self-isolation and quarantine requirements.

Cleared to Return means an individual has met all established re-entry requirements set by state and local health authorities and has not attended in-person instruction for the recommended period. The number of recommended days can vary for different cases. When re-entry requirements are met and verified by district administrators and campus nursing staff, an individual may return to in-person instruction.
