All student families at Boone Elementary School have been notified that there is one (1) new lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 involving a staff member. The staff member was last present on campus Jan. 6. Because of privacy requirements, the name of the staff member will not be released.

The Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) Department is always contacted about new cases and, in collaboration with HPISD, conducts contact-tracing investigations. This process includes phone calls to persons who are determined to be in close contact. All staff and students who were determined to be in close contact have been directly notified or are in the process of being notified by DCHHS or the campus nurse. The community’s full support and cooperation are needed during the contact tracing phase. Please make every effort to respond timely to contact tracing calls from DCHHS and HPISD.

The lab-confirmed case will remain off-campus for up to 10 days from the last contact to prevent any further spread. In-person instruction will continue at Boone. Additionally, cleaning protocols for the affected areas on campus have been implemented. These protocols were established by DCHHS guidelines and are outlined in HPISD’s Back to School plan.

As always, please watch for symptoms of COVID-19. Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:

  • Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth;
  • Sore throat;
  • New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with a chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline);
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or
  • New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever.
  • Loss of taste or smell.


If you or any member of the Highland Park ISD community begins experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, you are encouraged to contact your physician and the school nurse.  If your child has had symptoms and has been tested, please do not return to school until test results confirm a negative result.

Anyone who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19, please notify Boone school nurse, Whitney Hornberger, at (214) 780-4120 or email at hornweb@hpisd.org.
