Hello Devine ISD Community and Families,

We have been made aware that Covid-19 is making a known presence in our community. Several positive cases have been reported in the community, a student athlete involved in strength and conditioning has tested positive, and a member of our administration team reported a positive test result as of this morning. Based on privacy concerns governed by law, Devine ISD is not able to reveal the identity of any person testing positive; however, we are notifying individuals that may have had direct exposure to a confirmed positive case. The health and safety of our students, community, faculty, and staff is our primary concern. As a result of the unfolding events, and to proceed with extreme caution, we are enacting the following:
  • All campus offices will be closed to the public and available through appointment only.
  • All employees will be required to wear a mask/face covering at all times while at work.
  • The summer strength and conditioning program will suspend operations starting June 22nd, and we will re-evaluate to potentially resume that program on July 13th.
  • The Head Start program has ended operations as of June 19th.
  • The Food Service Department operations will continue as normal thru June 30 as no positive tests are associated with this program.
If you, or someone you know, begin to develop symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, you should contact your primary health care professional. If you do not have a primary health care professional, a point of contact would be The Medina County Health Unit at (830)741-6191 or www.medinacountytexas.org/page/medina.HealthUnit.

Devine ISD will continue to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on our district and stakeholders. We will share the appropriate information as it becomes available. Please continue to practice safe health protocol as described by the Center for Disease Control here at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html for additional resources.

Thank you,
Dr. Todd Grandjean
