District COVID-19 Safety Guidelines Information
Texas Governor Greg Abbott communicated a new executive order outlining the state’s intent to lift COVID safety regulations and reopen the state.
Many have concerns regarding what this means for district and campus safety operations. DeSoto ISD’s COVID-19 Task Force, a group of more than 50 district staffers, is continuing to review new and evolving information from the Centers for Disease Control and local health officials to inform changes and updates to the district’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines which are available for review here.
Below, are major points of clarification for district operations regarding COVID-19 health and safety protocols in DeSoto ISD:
DeSoto ISD will continue to require the use of masks while onsite at district campuses and facilities
Air Quality and Ventilation:
Air filters are removed and disinfected every 30 days to ensure optimal performance
All classrooms have upgraded ventilation systems which circulate fresh air every 10
Teachers are encouraged to keep classroom doors closed in order to enhance
functionality of the ventilation systems and as aligned with campus security protocols
The ISC is now open to visitors
Visitors may visit campuses by appointment only
Parents will not be permitted to visit district classrooms
Visitors will not be permitted to attend Board meetings and are encouraged to view
For the safety of yourself and our school community, please continue to wear a mask, maintain social distancing and wash your hands frequently. The safety of our school community depends on it.
