Update on Masking : April 14, 2021
At this time, Avinger ISD still requires all staff, students, employees,
and visitors to correctly wear masks. We are closely monitoring
the situation. The Texas Department of Health Service has advised
Avinger ISD to continue the use of mask, social distancing and other
Parents please help us keep a healthy environment by making sure
your child has a mask on before entering the school building.
Update on Masking
On March 2nd, Governor Abbott issued Executive Order GA-34 which addressed the masking mandate in Texas. While this order removes the statewide masking mandate for private businesses and most public organizations effective Wednesday, March 3rd, there is a provision that requires Texas public schools to follow Texas Education Agency (TEA) public health guidance. On March 4th, the TEA issued revisions to the public health guidance that schools are directed to follow.
This revised guidance maintains the masking requirement for public schools and reads:
“Schools must comply with the following requirements:
Every student, teacher, or staff member SHALL wear a mask over the nose and mouth when inside a school building, school facility, facility used for school activities, or when in an outdoor space on school property or used for school activities, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household.” schools are directed to follow.
Exceptions to this requirement include people with documented medical conditions or a disability preventing masking and masking while seated and eating.
Avinger ISD continues to follow the TEA public health guidance as directed by the Governor. We will also continue to provide the most clean and safe educational environment for our students and staff through consistent cleaning and sanitizing of facilities. Handwashing and avoiding touching the face, eyes, or nose remain one of the most effective methods of prevention for any illness. Any student or staff member experiencing symptoms of illness in the past 24 hours should not come to school (including fever, new or worsening headaches, breathing problems, coughing, fatigue, or muscle aches.) In accordance with TEA guidance, individuals with close contact to someone confirmed positive for Coronavirus SHALL not return to school earlier than seven days (prior approval needed from Mrs. Smith) after exposure provided a negative test conducted on the fifth day of exposure or later OR ten days after exposure without a test while monitoring for symptoms for four more days.
Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff as we continue to provide the highest quality educational opportunity to each and every student regardless of the situation. We remain committed to assure that students are cared for and supported well so that they can achieve their fullest potential.
