It is hard to say it the head gasket is blown at this point. It is too early to tell. It will depends on how hot the engine got.

Based on my experience, these engines are very good and you may get lucky as the head gasket may not be blown for this over heating incident. The only way to find out is to install a serpentine belt and test the the vehicle and check for signs of a blown head-gasket.
