Truitt Middle School
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are a few days away from beginning an unprecedented year. During this time, our staff has been preparing to welcome students back either to CFISD Connect or Face to Face. Either method of instruction that you choose for you child, will be quality schooling. Staff is prepared to teach virtual, as well as in the classroom simultaneously.
Each month there will be a Truitt Middle School newsletter sent out via Facebook, Twitter, and messenger. The newsletters will also be posted on the campus website for your convenience. As you read this important information, please take note of the visitation guidelines on campus, deliveries, masks, nurse protocols, etc.
After not seeing our students since March, we can’t wait to see them next week either in person or virtually. I can speak for the whole staff by saying that we miss them dearly!
Thank you for your support,

Modification of “Use of Face Mask” Protocol:
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently released new guidance strongly endorsing the use of face masks as a proven and effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 for children two years of age and older. After carefully reviewing this guidance, we have made several modifications to our “Use of Face Mask” protocol that we believe will strengthen our ability to create a safe learning environment for students and staff.
- All staff and students (grades PK-12) must wear face masks on buses, in hallways, and in common areas. Students will wear a face mask when entering and/or exiting the gym, playground, or activity space and when not actively engaged in physical activity. Additionally, all staff and students (grades PK-12) will be required to wear face masks in the classroom when social distancing is not feasible and/or the teacher’s method for delivery of instruction warrants the use of face masks. All visitors (including parents, contractors, and vendors) will also wear face masks. Face masks will be provided for staff and students if needed.
- Face masks are defined to include non-medical and medical grade disposable face masks and cloth face coverings (over the nose and mouth) that meet the same protection standards as non-medical grade face masks. Additionally, face masks with exhalation valves (vents that allow air to be exhaled through a hole in the material) may only be worn in combination with full-face shields.
- Limited exceptions to these rules will only be made for eating, drinking, therapy, or a medical condition or disability that prevents a person from wearing a face mask. Full-face clear shields as an accommodation may be used in place of a mask to protect eyes, nose, and mouth whenever a face mask is not feasible due to a medical condition or whenever the education context may benefit from the ability to see an individual’s full face.
- Students seeking an exemption from these rules for a medical condition or disability may do so in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Staff seeking an exemption from these rules for a medical condition or disability may do so in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Written documentation from a medical provider will be required.
- Face masks must meet the Student Code of Conduct and dress code requirements.
