• San Marcos CISD Families,

    San Marcos CISD will be suspending curbside meals at Mendez Elementary effective Tuesday, June 9 until further notice. This decision comes after the District was informed this evening that a San Marcos CISD child nutrition employee received a positive diagnosis of COVID-19.

    The employee most recently distributed curbside meals at Mendez Elementary on Wednesday, June 3, but used personal protective equipment and maintained proper social distancing. The employee exhibited no symptoms and received a temperature check during a safety protocol screening prior to shift. 

    San Marcos CISD has communicated with all SMCISD staff who may have had direct contact with the employees and directed them to self-quarantine. We are also asking any parents who picked up food at Mendez Elementary last week to continue to monitor for any flu-like symptoms and call your medical professional if any symptoms arise.

    We recognize that safety precautions must be taken for our dedicated employees as they work to ensure families have a nutrition option over the summer. For that reason, all of our food service preparation and distribution areas are thoroughly sanitized multiple times a day and our certified food services workers wear gloves and face coverings to prepare and distribute meals. We are also enforcing mandatory practices of social distancing, frequent handwashing, and temperature readings for all of our distribution staff daily.

    We understand that when our food service employees come to work, they put their own health on the line to help our families. For that reason, San Marcos CISD is doing everything in our power to help those who have been affected. Our thoughts are with our employees and their families as well as everyone affected by COVID-19.

     

    Familias de San Marcos CISD,

    San Marcos CISD suspenderá las comidas en la acera en la Primaria Méndez a partir del martes 9 de junio hasta nuevo aviso. Esta decisión se produce después de que el Distrito fue informado esta noche de que un empleado de nutrición infantil de San Marcos CISD recibió un diagnóstico positivo de COVID-19.

    El empleado distribuyó más recientemente las comidas en la acera de la escuela primaria Mendez el miércoles 3 de junio, pero usó equipo de protección personal y mantuvo un distanciamiento social adecuado. El empleado no mostró síntomas y recibió un control de temperatura durante un examen de protocolo de seguridad antes del turno.

    San Marcos CISD se ha comunicado con todo el personal de SMCISD que puede haber tenido contacto directo con los empleados y los ha dirigido a la cuarentena. También estamos pidiendo a los padres que recogieron alimentos en la escuela primaria Mendez la semana pasada que continúen monitoreando cualquier síntoma similar a la gripe y que llamen a su profesional médico si surge algún síntoma.

    Reconocemos que se deben tomar precauciones de seguridad para nuestros empleados dedicados mientras trabajan para garantizar que las familias tengan una opción de nutrición durante el verano. Por esa razón, todas nuestras áreas de preparación y distribución de servicios de alimentos se desinfectan a fondo varias veces al día y nuestros trabajadores de servicios de alimentos certificados usan guantes y cobertores para preparar y distribuir comidas. También estamos aplicando prácticas obligatorias de distanciamiento social, lavado frecuente de manos y lecturas de temperatura para todo nuestro personal de distribución diariamente.

    Entendemos que cuando nuestros empleados del servicio de alimentos vienen a trabajar, ponen su propia salud en juego para ayudar a nuestras familias. Por esa razón, San Marcos CISD está haciendo todo lo que está a nuestro alcance para ayudar a los afectados. Nuestros pensamientos están con nuestros empleados y sus familias, así como con todos los afectados por COVID-19.
