LISD still “strongly recommends” masks

From Leander ISD on August 12, 2021 

Leander ISD continues to strongly recommend wearing masks to keep our schools open for in-person learning and to safeguard the health of our students, teachers, and staff. Both of our local health agencies recommend masks for anyone two years of age or older, according to Matt Mitchell, LISD communications coordinator. 

We will follow rules set forth by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and state leadership, as well as the guidance of local health agencies as outlined in our current COVID-19 protocols. The city and county orders conflict with the governor’s order (GA-38) and until we receive different guidance from the state, we plan to follow the governor’s order.
