Linden-Kildare CISD said one of their staff members tested positive for the COVID-19.
LKCISD Superintendent Keri Winters said the staff member tested positive Tuesday and she let parents know the staff member did not handle any meals that have been delivered nor have they handled any assignments that went out this week. She said the staff member did ride the bus two days early last week and had no symptoms while riding and had no direct contact with students.

Superintendent Winters said that as a precaution, the staff member has self-quarantined for 7 days already prior to being diagnosed.
The school said that as soon as they learned about the positive test, they encouraged quarantining anyone else that had direct contact. Linden-Kildare CISD said that they will continue to deliver meals and assignments as long as they have staff members willing to serve.
“I appreciate the respect and the prayers that many of you are sending our way. Our mission is to serve the students of LKCISD and to do it in the right way,” Keri Winters said. “I will continue to only send you the facts and I hope that our community will stay together and support one another.”
Winters said the school is taking every precaution necessary in preparing the meals, packing the meals, and delivering the meals. The school said if anyone has been receiving meals and no longer wishes to, they can put a note on your mailbox letting them know they want to stop and we will respect that.
“I don’t know what the future holds with this virus,” Keri Winters said. “I do know I have my own concerns to protect my family as well and I choose to stay involved. Thank you for all of your support. “
