Lawton Public Schools Possible COVID-19 Exposure Notice

This webpage will be updated regularly as positive cases are identified within the district. The district’s priority upon hearing of a probable positive case is to directly reach out to staff or parents affected and communicate next steps as it aligns with the safety guidelines and procedures. Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the district cannot release names or details.

It is important that parents and staff remain in contact and communicate information for the safety of others with school leadership or administrators at the school site. Personal health procedures and extra disinfecting measures continue to be in place. District leadership remains in constant communication and in full cooperation with Comanche County Health Department.

All staff and parents of students who have been in close contact (6 feet or less for more than fifteen minutes at a time) with a positive case are being notified by the health department that their student will need to quarantine for 14 days. If you have not been contacted, you or your student have not met the requirements of a “Close Contact.”
