Natalia HS shut down for cleaning; Varsity football game postponed

A student at Natalia High has tested positive for COVID-19, and out of caution, the varsity football team has been quarantined. As such, the varsity football games have been postponed. The district has gone above and beyond requirements by shutting down the high school for thorough cleaning.
Interim Natalia ISD Superintendent Lana Collavo stated that the student would “remain in isolation according to CDC and TEA guidelines. District staff worked with the Medina County Health Department to conduct contact tracing. As a result, students and staff who may have met the criteria for close contact are in quarantine for 14 days. While in quarantine students will receive instruction remotely. The high school campus was closed to on-campus instruction on Monday, October 12 so the buildings could be thoroughly cleaned. On-campus learners and staff returned to campus on Tuesday, October 13. The district has protocols in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 along with other infectious diseases which will continue to be enforced.”
