Dear Parents/Guardian, 

According to the Texas Education Agency Public Health Planning Guidance, school districts are required to notify all teachers, staff, and families of all students in a school if a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case is identified among students, teachers, or staff who participate in any campus activity.

This notice is to inform you that an individual at Rice Elementary and Rice Intermediate Middle School has tested positive for COVID-19. Individuals who were in close contact with this person have been notified and will be required to follow district protocols to ensure the safety of others.

The district has taken the necessary steps to ensure the safety of all students and staff. We will continue to follow our COVID-19 safety procedures and monitor exposure risks. It is imperative to follow protocol if you cannot social distance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (903)-326-4287.

Rice ISD Superintendent
