March 11: An Update for Parents

Dear Ursuline Parents and Guardians:

We want to advise you that Ursuline is following direction from Dallas County Health and Human Services. They are currently working to gather information and will contact us with further instructions on next steps, and they have advised that the most accurate language for us to use is “possible” and not “presumptive” COVID-19. At this time, we are not able to comment on the details of this particular case. We will give you all the information we can when directed.

In the meantime, we have made the decision to enact e-Day protocols for Thursday and Friday, March 12 and 13. Ms. Smith will follow up with communications to parents and students on how this will work.  

We are working now to implement a thorough cleaning of the school following CDC guidelines. We will assess the situation as it develops, and decide when to reopen the campus after Spring Break.

Thank you for your support, partnership, and patience as we do all we can to ensure the safety of our students!


Dr. Andrea Shurley
