Face Covering / Mask Guidelines

As you are likely aware, Governor Greg Abbott has issued an executive order rescinding the statewide mask mandate as of March 10, 2021. The governor’s order also requires public schools to follow the guidelines set for them by the Texas Education Agency. This means we are still required to conduct contact tracing and quarantine anyone who has been in close contact with a confirmed positive case.

To continue to keep schools open and children in classrooms, we believe it is vital for students and staff members to wear face coverings. We will continue to require face coverings for the duration of the 2020-2021 school year. We truly appreciate your understanding and continued flexibility as we work to keep our community’s children healthy and in school.

We hope you and your families have a wonderful and relaxing spring break.

Questions and Concerns can be addressed to Dr. Benskin: abenskin@wisd.org
