Response to Governor's Announcement

March 2, 2021
Dear BISD Staff & Families,
This afternoon Gov. Abbott issued Executive Order GA-34 lifting the statewide mask mandate effective Wednesday, March 10. We understand this announcement is received with mixed reactions and emotions.
The district will consult with the Texas Education Agency and our local health authority and will consider carefully the impact of this announcement on our schools. We will provide further guidance to staff and families as we learn more about this developing situation.
In the meantime, district health protocols are still in place, and we ask for the support of our staff, students and parents in continuing to wear masks and to practice the other safety habits that have served us well during this pandemic.
