Two students previously lab-confirmed with COVID-19 were cleared to return to in-person instruction and campus activities.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All student families at Highland Park High School were notified that there have been three (3) additional lab-confirmed student cases of COVID-19. The students have not been on campus for in-person instruction but have participated in extracurricular activities.

In addition, a HPHS staff member who was last on the campus yesterday has tested positive for the virus. Because of privacy requirements, neither the names of the students or staff member nor details about them will be released.

The Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) Department have been contacted about these new cases. 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 the campus nurse. 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.

The lab-confirmed students and those who were 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 HPHS.

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 HPHS school nurse, Angie Glass, at (214) 780-3720.
