Dear Volleyball and Cheer Parents and Staff, Somerville ISD has been notified that a student who participates in both volleyball and cheer has tested positive for COVID-19. The Somerville High School Gym and the Yegua Center, will be deeply sanitized. All Somerville Independent School District employees and students are instructed to continue to follow CDC guidelines and recommendations and to practice social distancing. Based on the information that we have gathered, it has been determined that the end of the 14-day incubation period for anyone possibly exposed on campus to the student is August 17th. Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your health, follow the CDC guidelines for people who have had close contact and contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms. Somerville ISD is continuing to monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed. We hope for a successful recovery for our SHS student. If you have any questions please call us. Sincerely, Karla Sparks Superintendent
