Free SeJoy Infrared Forehead Thermometers to be handed out to each family at Mount Calm ISD.

Mount Calm Health Services has purchased Infrared Forehead Thermometers for each family household of students at Mount Calm ISD. We will start handing them out on Wednesday March 30th at the Elementary drop off point. These thermometers were purchased with grant funds from the Covid 19 School Health Support Grant. This is just another way we are working to keep our staff and students safe this year.

School Health Support Grant

Mount Calm ISD Health Services has been awarded grant money to purchase Shark Air Purifiers for each classroom. It is our hope that these units will help keep our classrooms safe from Airborne viruses like Covid 19. This is one more step we are taking to keep students and staff safe.

We want to hear from YOU! Please take this short survey!

Good afternoon, Happy Groundhog Day, and Happy 2-2-22 to you!
According to the weather forecast, the greater part of Texas, including the Mount Calm area, is advised to prepare for inclement weather tonight.

New Guidance from UIL Deputy Director Jamey Harrison, EdD regarding return to play after Covid-19 infection

As schools continue to navigate challenges presented by COVID-19, UIL is providing the following information.

Following a called meeting of the UIL Medical Advisory Committee (MAC), UIL has altered the return to play requirements for students diagnosed with COVID-19 related to requiring clearance from a physician or physician-approved delegate. The UIL MAC strongly recommends a student who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 receive clearance from a physician, or physician-approved delegate, prior to returning to participation in UIL marching band or athletics activities in accordance with the most current resources available from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and/or the American College of Cardiology (ACC). This change also provides medical providers with additional guidance related to when a student who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 requires clearance from a physician, or physician-approved delegate.

You can review the full policy on the UIL website.

Additionally, UIL is reminding schools of the available exception to the school week limitation for varsity district contests rescheduled due to COVID-19. The following has been posted on the UIL website for some time and remains in effect:

The COVID-19 Pandemic has been identified as a ‘public disaster’ by the State of Texas. As long as we remain under this status as ordered by Governor Abbott, UIL varsity district contests postponed because of COVID-19 reasons may be rescheduled and played as exceptions to the school week limit as noted in state regulations, as long as they are rescheduled and played on a date agreed upon by the two schools involved in the contest, or on a date as determined by the District Executive Committee, if the two schools cannot agree.

Thank you,

Charles Breithaupt, EdD
UIL Executive Director
