Statement from Commerce ISD:
Dear Commerce ISD family,
As always, the health and safety of our students, staff, and community is our number one priority. To be transparent, we believe it is important to share that Commerce ISD has been informed that an employee of the district has tested positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The employee has not been on a CISD campus for more than 10 days and then only to grade student assignments in the employee’s classroom. The employee has not been involved in the student meal program or in the distribution of instructional packets. The employee is currently quarantined at home. Our prayers and best wishes are with our staff member and the staff member’s family.
Out of respect for this individual’s privacy and because it is a HIPPA violation to share any identifying information, Commerce ISD is not able to release the staff member’s identity. However, District leadership is continuing to monitor the situation and is in constant communication with the employee and local health officials. Additional information will be provided if needed. In the meantime, please remember this staff member and family in your thoughts and prayers. We are all praying for a speedy and total recovery.
Thank you for your support of our district, our schools, our students, and our staff!
