In keeping with Round Rock ISD's practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying parents, students, and staff that an individual who was present at Stony Point High School was recently lab-confirmed to have the virus that causes COVID-19.

The local health department will begin a case investigation and will contact any individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individual. All students and staff that came into close contact will be directly notified by Williamson County and Cities Health District or Austin Public Health staff as soon as possible. Those that were in close contact are required to remain off-campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus, so that there will not be any further spread.
