HISD officials say R. Martinez Elementary School is transitioning to virtual learning on November 17 and November 18 as a precautionary measure.
The decision to temporarily close the campus was made by HISD Health and Medical Services in consultation with the Houston Health Department.
The school nurse will notify any student or staff member who is believed to have been exposed to COVID-19.
Additionally, as outlined in the HISD Communicable Disease Plan, the campus will be deep cleaned and disinfected during the closure. Parents have been informed of the closure and will be notified when the school has been cleared to reopen.
