Denison ISD's Position on Masks

Currently, Governor Abbott’s executive order banning mask mandates is being addressed through the court system. We are being advised by the legal community that the governor’s order could be fully reinstated and could be fully enforced very soon.

 

As a result of the tentative status of the executive order banning mask mandates, we feel that it is best at this time to continue with our current approach to masks, which is to encourage the wearing of masks but not require the wearing of masks.

 

The wearing of masks remains a choice in Denison ISD. However, we ask that all staff members, parents, and students give strong consideration to choose to wear a mask. We have seen an increase in our positive cases during the first 3 weeks of the school year. Our local medical community is advising that the Delta variant is an air-borne transmissible virus and that masks are one of the primary methods to slowing the spread of the virus.

 

The issue of wearing a mask continues to be very sensitive in communities across the nation, state, and local communities. People are very passionate on both sides of the issue. With that in mind, any possible change in the district’s position will be carefully researched, well thought out, and communicated accordingly.

 

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic.

Apply today for free and reduced meals here...  

myschoolappssquare.png

The Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) helped millions of Texas children who temporarily lost access to free school meals during the 2020-2021 school year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently added a one-time summer P-EBT summer benefit. Eligible families may be able to receive an additional $375 to supplement their family’s budget during the covered summer period

Families that
submit a household application before August 28 and meet one of the following criteria may receive the $375 Summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) through a direct distribution from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

  • Are newly eligible for P-EBT based on a change in family income after June 30, 2021 or are income eligible and did not have a household application on file during the 2020-2021 school year.
     

  • Have not yet applied for P-EBT and have children who were certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and enrolled in an NSLP school in the last month of the 2020-2021 school year. Note: These families must submit applications through MyTexasBenefits.

    Schools should ensure parents can access the NSLP household application so families can obtain summer PEBT benefits.
