Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year
Update on Mask Protocols following state Supreme Court decision
The District and its legal team have continued to monitor the ongoing lawsuits challenging Governor Abbot’s Executive Order GA-38, which prohibits local governments from having mask mandates.
The state-wide temporary restraining orders issued by courts in Travis County restraining Governor Abbott from enforcing the parts of Executive Order GA-38 that bar mask mandates are no longer in place.
While the lawsuits Challenging Executive Order GA-38 are not over, right now the provisions of Executive Order GA-38 that bar mask mandates are effective.
In light of this legal development, at this time, the District is not requiring the wearing of masks. The District continues to strongly urge employees, students, parents, and visitors to wear a mask.
