    LAKE WORTH, TX - In an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19, and in partnership with public health officials, and TEA, the Lake Worth ISD will close all 6 campuses until March 27, 2020. 


     Friday, March 13, 2020, 8:00 AM

    The Lake Worth ISD thanks everyone for the care and concern you’ve shown our students and staff as we grapple with an evolving health situation in our community. Please know that we share your concerns about COVID-19. Later today, the Lake Worth ISD, along with several other districts, will be discussing extending school closures with public health officials.

     

    COORDINATION

    We are working daily with public health officials to help guide our decision-making around district operations. 

    CLEANING OF SCHOOL FACILITIES AND SCHOOL BUSES

    The Lake Worth Independent School District is taking the necessary steps and preventive measures to help protect our students, staff, and parents who use district facilities and buses daily.   

    SCHOOL CLOSURE

    At this time, we are not canceling any classes unless advised to do so by local health officials. If a case of COVID-19 is confirmed in the District, we will report it to the Tarrant County Public Health Department immediately and follow their recommendations. Should circumstances warrant the cancelation of classes, we will communicate the information by email, phone call, text message, at www.lwisd.org/covid-19, Facebook, Twitter, and local media outlets.

    Thank you for your support and partnership as we work together to maintain a healthy learning environment.

    ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE

    For all questions or concerns regarding enrollment and attendance, please contact our PEIMS Coordinator, Shawna Ohnesorge, by email at sohnesorge@lwisd.org.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO

    There is something you can do. Review good hygiene with your family to help keep them safe. Examples of some routine, everyday preventive actions to lessen the spread of viruses include:

    • If a student or staff member is sick, do not come to school. Stay home until fever-free for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication.
    • Cover your mouth with your upper arm or a tissue when coughing or sneezing
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
