Infectious Diseases

At Olney ISD, we follow specific policies and protocols for students and staff who may potentially come into contact with any infectious diseases. Our District has been in contact with local health departments and is not aware of any such cases.

In response to specific infectious diseases, we may ask new students enrolling in our district or students traveling or who may have relatives traveling from regions known to have been affected by a contagious disease to respond to health related questions. We will continue to work closely with our local, state, and federal public health authorities to continue to monitor new developments related to infectious diseases.

We are committed to keeping our community informed of potential infectious diseases and will make every effort to share this information with our parents and teachers.

Historically, these communications have involved various strains of Influenza virus. In accordance with recommended precautions during cold and flu season, I encourage you to speak with your children about the importance of practicing good hygiene. Below are a few general tips that you may find helpful:

  • Avoid close contact with anyone who may be ill.                 

  • Wash your hands with soap often.

  • Do not share food or drinks with others.

  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow.

  • Use hand sanitizers and avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

  • Clean and disinfect surfaces.

  • Remain at home if ill or experiencing any symptoms of illness.

  • Remain at home for at least 24 hours after any fever is gone.

Again, if you have any questions or concerns or wish to share any information you believe might be helpful, I hope you will feel free to contact us anytime.
