Covid-19 Information

    This school year, Wylie ISD will continue to work with students and staff to promote good health and hygiene habits to help reduce the transmission of illness in schools. The district will also continue to clean touched surfaces daily and perform extra sanitizing measures in classrooms and areas where a person who is ill or has tested positive with COVID has been. 

    While our most frequently asked questions can be found below, the following contains important information about positive COVID-19 cases and symptomatic individuals:  

    • If your child receives a positive COVID test, they are required to stay at home until 10 days have passed since symptoms began or from the test date if asymptomatic. Report a positive COVID-19 case here.
    • Parents should keep their children home if they have COVID symptoms, such as a fever greater than 100°F, sore throat, cough, body aches, vomiting or diarrhea. They may return to school after 10 days have passed, their symptoms are improving and they are fever-free or without signs of a fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
