COVID-19 Updates

The situation concerning COVID-19 remains fluid, and we will update this page and our protocols as needed, according to the latest guidance from the TEA, CDC, and Williamson County and Cities Health District. See our Health and Safety Protocols below.
 
As of Monday, Aug. 23, masks are required to be properly worn while indoors on campus. Read more.  
 

REPORTING

Once Meridian's Health Team is notified of a positive case on campus and have verified that the person was on campus when potentially contagious, here's what happens:
 
1) Parents/guardians will be notified directly if their student has come in close contact with someone who has tested positive on campus.
2) Parents/guardians of students in classrooms with a positive case on campus will receive a general notification letter.
3) The dashboard is updated to reflect totals.
