Dear West Sabine ISD Community,

The school district shares with each of you the concerns of the nationwide outbreak of Coronavirus/COVID 19.
We understand the recent reports can cause concern for parents, employees and families. We are monitoring
the situation very closely following state health official recommendations, Texas Education Agency updates
along with Center for Disease Control updates and timelines.

In recent weeks, we have accelerated our schedule for disinfecting campuses in the evenings and are in the
process of disinfecting school busses as well. Extra attention is being given at campuses to remind students and
employees to follow good prevention habits. We continue to keep track of flu season and those outbreaks as
well.

What you should do:
The CDC and state health department officials recommend a yearly flu vaccine as the single best way to prevent
against the flu. (There is no vaccine for COVID -19). Additionally, the CDC and health departments
recommend the following everyday preventive actions:

*Avoid close contact with sick people.
*While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.
*Stay home if you are sick.
*Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs
spread this way.
*Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that might be contaminated with germs.
*Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an
alcohol based hand rub with at least 60 percent alcohol
