March Issue

Face Mask Protocol Update

On March 2, Gov. Greg Abbott rescinded the statewide mask order for the general public but directed public schools to follow TEA’s guidance. On March 3, TEA released updated public health guidance stating schools must continue to enforce wearing masks unless action is taken to eliminate or modify this requirement. CFISD consulted with local medical professionals who strongly recommend that we continue our health and safety protocols—including wearing masks.


Masks are one of the many protective measures (desk shields, hand washing, sanitization of classrooms and buses, distancing, etc.) in place that have allowed us to keep our schools open, ensure student and staff safety, and continue academic and extracurricular activities. These protective measures are all taken into consideration when an individual tests positive for COVID-19 to determine who are identified as close contacts and must quarantine during the contact tracing process. Removal of any of our measures (such as masks) would result in more students and staff quarantined.


CFISD will continue its health and hygiene practices in the LEAD Safely plan, including the requirement of masks for all students, staff, and visitors.
