A week and a half after learning five Dallas Independent School District students had possibly been in contact with the first confirmed case of Ebola in the United States, the district continues to carefully monitor the situation.
At this time, all five students have no signs or symptoms of the virus. They remain home from school as they complete their 21-day home stay directed by Dallas County Health and Human Services. They continue to be served through the district’s Hospital/Homebound program to ensure they are receiving academic support during their prolonged absence.
The district continues to answer questions in English, Spanish and Vietnamese from parents who have questions about Ebola. During weekdays, parents can call the district’s main number at (972) 925-3700. For those needing information in Spanish, the number is (972) 925-5880. For Vietnamese assistance, the number is (972) 925-5889.
For questions regarding Ebola, you can also contact the CDC hotline at 1-800-232-4636.
