Emergency-Red-School Closure
School Closure

With student and staff safety as our top concern, GISD has decided to close all schools and offices on Friday, February 3, 2023, due to continued unsafe road conditions. See the Weather Procedures page for more details.

Sick with COVID-19?

We have special procedures for those who are ill with COVID-19 in addition to regular absence practices.

See how to report positive cases below.


If your student has tested positive for COVID-19:

  • Fill out the Positive Case Report form to receive return dates and excuse your student's absence.
  • If your student has tested positive for COVID-19, email COVIDHELP@garlandisd.net to report close contact with other students or staff within 48 hours prior to the start of symptoms.


If you are diagnosed with COVID-19:

Your return date will be provided by Health Services staff to your supervisor and Human Resources.

If you are ill with undiagnosed COVID-type symptoms, call in sick the way you normally would to get tested. Only report information to Health Services if you are positive. If negative, you can return to campus when you are fever-free for 24 hours.
