Message to MISD Stakeholders from MISD Superintendent

Mask Mandate Will Continue in the MISD

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 @ If you have questions please contact your building

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
