MISD Releases Mask Mandate Update Statement

MISD Releases Mask Mandate Update Statement

October 29, 2021


MISD Families & Stakeholders,


Based on local COVID-19 data, beginning Monday, November 01, 2021, students P-12, staff, and outside visitors will have the option of wearing masks or face coverings at school and on district property.  Masks or face coverings are highly recommended for staff and students who are not fully vaccinated.  Masks will continue to be required on all school transportation.


MISD encourages everyone eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine to strongly consider and partake after consultation with your healthcare provider.  The vaccine is our best defense for a safe and healthy school year.  You can find information about vaccines and eligibility here: CDC COVID-19 Vaccines and you can find where to receive the vaccine locally here:   https://www.vaccines.gov/search/ 


The MISD COVID-19 Daily Self Checklist should be addressed by every student, volunteer, and visitor each day before entering MISD buses/schools/buildings. The self-check is available here:  https://bit.ly/MISDselfcheck 


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.


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


Thank you,

Coy D. Samons, Superintendent

Murray Independent School District
