CES Families, There has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 for a student and/or staff member on our campus. This is a general letter sent by the campus for transparency. You will be contacted more directly if the staff believes your child was “directly exposed”. Do I need to keep my child home from school? As long as your child has no COVID symptoms, or has not tested positive for COVID, you should continue attending school, but please carefully screen your child for symptoms each morning before coming to school. If he or she has any symptoms, please keep your child home and contact the campus office and your child’s doctor. What is considered “directly exposed”? There are multiple elements to consider including confirmation of the virus existing, proximity to the virus, timing of when a person is contagious, being directly coughed on, and lack of prevention measures like masks or physical distancing. Although the Texas Education Agency does not require schools to conduct contact tracing, campus personnel will assist the nurse in identifying students who have been directly exposed to a positive case. Do I need to keep my child home from school? He or she may continue to come to school, but please carefully screen your student for symptoms each morning before coming to school. If he or she has any symptoms, please keep your student home and contact your child’s doctor or the School Nurse to arrange for COVID test from the school. Connally ISD believes in transparency and respects the right of parents to be informed of their student’s proximity to COVID-19. We also request your vigilance in monitoring symptoms. Again, please keep your student home if he or she experiences symptoms.

Hello Parents, My name is Katie Redden and I want to take this opportunity to let you know about some changes that have happened on campus. I have been hired as the new principal at Connally Elementary School. Mr. Oakley has decided to retire again in December when we go on Christmas break. He and his wife have plans to move to Ohio in the spring to be near family. Mr. Oakley will stay until December as the assistant principal and will assist with the transition and the hiring of a new assistant principal. This is my 19th year working in education. I spent 15 years as both a classroom teacher and a school counselor for elementary aged students. This is my 3rd year with Connally Elementary School as an administrator, and this age group is by far my favorite. I understand very well the challenges that face students, and I look forward to continuing to work with them to help them be successful both academically and socially. I will make every attempt to communicate with you as quickly as I can regarding any issues that may affect our campus, and look forward to the continued partnership we will have with your child. Please feel free to contact me at kredden@connally.org or via campus phone number at 254-750-7100. Thank you, Katie Redden
