In keeping with Leander ISD’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we will notify parents, students, and staff that an individual who was present at your campus/building has recently tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 via this dashboard. Due to privacy laws that prevent us from sharing personal information about students and staff, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify them.
LISD notifies the health department of all positive cases. Our custodial teams will continue to take great care in cleaning our facilities daily.
Due to children in Pre K–12th grade now having the opportunity to be vaccinated against COVID-19, contact tracing will be handled by the local health department, if required.
We ask that our community partner with us by masking up, getting vaccinated, staying home if you become symptomatic, and testing as appropriate.
If you begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. For any student or staff member who is confirmed to have COVID-19, we ask parents/guardians/staff members to complete the appropriate form below to notify the district.
POSITIVE STAFF REPORTING
Email: [email protected]
Please note, this will be the only way to report a positive student/staff cases during weekends and holiday breaks.
Our local health departments require us to report positive cases of COVID-19. They no longer require probable cases to be reported.

Recommendations for Quarantine
Per the CDC, Quarantine is no longer recommended for people who are exposed to COVID-19 except in certain high-risk congregate settings such as correctional facilities, homeless shelters, and nursing homes. In schools and ECE settings, which are generally not considered high-risk congregate settings, people who were exposed to COVID-19 should follow recommendations to wear a well-fitting mask and get tested.
