Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Blue Box with Coronavirus (COVID-19) Groesbeck ISD continues to closely monitor coronavirus disease

What is coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)? Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. 

COVID-19 Guidance 2022-2023

Despite the challenges with COVID-19, our district will continue to provide an excellent education to our students.  The focus on the health, safety and the well-being of our staff, students, and community will remain a priority.

Groesbeck ISD will follow the recommendations for school opening and operations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Education Agency (TEA).  As changes are made, we will update this page with the new information.


Precautions and protocols are based on the county’s infectious rate.  (Click here to view COVID-19 by County)

Students and Staff:

  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms:
    • Stay home and isolate yourself from others in your home for five (5) days from the onset of symptoms. 
    • You may return to school/work after day five (5) if you have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-suppressing medication and symptoms have improved.
  • Students and staff who are exposed and are asymptomatic do not need to isolate but should continue to monitor for symptoms.

We will continue to layer our mitigation procedures as we monitor our county levels.  Custodial personnel are continuing to wipe down solid surfaces daily and will thoroughly clean classrooms where a lab confirmed positive COVID-19 student or staff member was present.  GermBlast will follow their scheduled visits for District-wide disinfection.
