Mask Requirement To Remain In Place For Victoria ISD

Following Gov. Greg Abbott’s announcement of Executive Order GA 34, which is effective Wednesday,
March 10, 2021, Victoria ISD will continue to enforce our existing mask protocols and social distancing

Current Texas Education Agency (TEA) guidance says that a public school system’s current practices on
masks may continue unchanged under this updated guidance. Local school boards have full authority to
determine their local mask policy.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation and local health authorities
have informed us that their recommendations regarding masks and social distancing have not changed.
Given this guidance, Victoria ISD is maintaining current mitigation strategies.

VISD will also continue to prioritize student, staff, and community health by following the guidelines of
its Safe Start Strong Start Plan for the safety of all students and staff at all VISD campuses and district
buildings, including practicing physical distancing. We will adjust when it is safe and appropriate to do
so, and we will keep our students and families informed of what those developments may be.
