As outlined in EPISD’s School Reopening Guidelines, the District has notified all students and personnel who may have been in the same areas on campus.

“The exposure is considered low risk because of limited contact with other students and staff,” EPISD officials shared via a news release Saturday afternoon.  “All affected areas of the campus have been disinfected.”
