IMPORTANT ADJUSTMENTS TO FORT BEND ISD’S HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS
We are aware of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order that prohibits governmental entities - including school districts, counties, cities and public health authorities – from mandating or requiring individuals to wear masks. Further, the governor stated that public school districts may continue to follow current masks guidelines through June 4, 2021.
In keeping with the executive order, Fort Bend ISD has adjusted its health and safety protocols concerning masks.
Effective June 5, 2021 students, staff, parents and visitors will no longer be required to wear masks in schools and in District buildings. However, any individual may wear a mask if they choose to do so. Personal choice about mask wearing is to be respected at all times by all staff, students, parents and visitors.
The District will provide additional details associated with changes to other mitigation efforts and protocols soon that may be impacted by the Governor’s recent executive order.
FBISD remains committed to making prudent decisions, no matter how difficult, to keep students, staff, parents and their families as safe as possible.
