Murray Independent, Tradition Pride Excellence, Returning to School 2020-21

Update: September 13, 2021

MISD Stakeholders,

Based on current COVID-19 information available for Murray/Calloway County, the Murray Independent School District will require face masks/coverings indoors when students (PS-12) arrive to our respective campuses. Also, face masks/coverings are required at all times when using school transportation. Universal masking applies to all individuals, including visitors, vaccinated and unvaccinated. Face masks/coverings are not required outdoors.

As stated previously, Murray Independent Schools will continue to provide in person instruction five days per week during the 2021-2022 academic year. In person instruction is the most effective approach to address the academic and social-emotional needs of our students.

MISD encourages everyone eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine to strongly consider and partake after consultation with your healthcare provider.  The vaccines are our best defense for a safe and healthy school year.

The Murray Independent Reopening Plan for in person instruction for the 21/22 SY is available below.  If you have questions please contact your building principal.

Daily Symptoms Check - The Student COVID-19 self-check is available here:

If you have questions please contact your child’s school.

The Murray Independent District will continue to monitor on a regular basis the COVID-19 data and guidance from local, state, and national health sources to determine mask protocols for students PS-12 and staff.

Thank you,

Coy D. Samons, Superintendent
