All student families at University Park Elementary School were notified about one (1) lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 involving a student. The student was last present on the UP campus today, Thursday, Sept. 24. Because of privacy requirements, the name of the student will not be released.

The Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) Department has been contacted about this case. All students and staff who were determined to be in close contact have been notified or are in the process of being notified directly by DCHHS and the campus nurse. The community’s full support and cooperation are needed during the contact tracing phase. If you are contacted, please make every effort to respond timely to contact tracing calls from DCHHS and HPISD.

 

Additionally, cleaning protocols on campus have been implemented. These protocols were established by DCHHS guidelines and are outlined in HPISD’s Back to School plan.

The lab-confirmed student and those determined to be in close contact will remain off campus for up to 14 days from last contact to prevent any further spread. In-person instruction will continue at University Park.

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. Anyone who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19, please notify UP school nurse Amy Huey at (214) 780-3420.
