A message from Lytle ISD Superintendent Michelle Smith stated, “A staff member who has worked at the high school campus this week has a family member who must be quarantined due to exposure to COVID-19 at his San Antonio-based workplace. Both the Lytle ISD staff member and the family member began self quarantine at home today. They are not displaying symptoms of the virus and have not tested positive for the virus.”
“The entire high school campus has been deeply sanitized. In an abundance of caution, we have decided that all child nutrition staff, bus driver staff, and volunteers who worked at the high school this week must also self quarantine for the next 14 days.
Due to the sudden 2-week absence of such a large number of our staff, we will have to make an immediate change to our student meal service.” Starting Monday, April 6, 2020 free student meals will be available by pick up only, in two locations:
Lytle Primary bus pickup/dropoff area and Lytle Elementary parent pickup/dropoff area.
“We want to assure our Lytle ISD families that all staff who are working to provide essential meal services are following stringent food safety procedures, wearing all CDC recommended safety equipment, and are under the close supervision of District Nurse Juanita Black and Child Nutrition Director Amie Carrillo. Our decision to be very cautious in this matter is purposeful so we can continue to safely support our students’ nutritional needs.”
