Does the district plan to put a mask mandate in place?
Governor Abbott’s executive order strictly forbids all governmental entities in Texas, including public school districts, from enforcing any type of mask mandate. While we’re aware of some districts across the state who have defied the governor’s order, the Texas Supreme Court issued a ruling on August 26 reinforcing the current statewide effectiveness of the Governor’s order. We will continue to abide by the governor’s order against mask mandates, just as we followed the governor’s order mandating masks during the 2020-2021 school year. Masks and face coverings are optional for all students and staff members.
