Fort Stockton ISD reverses mask decision; will not require them in schools
FORT STOCKTON, Texas (KOSA) - UPDATE: Fort Stockton ISD will no longer require masks immediately, due to the Texas Supreme Court’s decision today to render Governor Abbott’s authority regarding GA-38.
The school board will meet Monday, August 30.
The board will discuss and potentially decide on incentives for staff and students of the district to pledge to wear masks while in school.
Another local school district is now requiring masks.
Fort Stockton ISD announced Wednesday night that it was instituting a mask mandate.
Beginning Thursday, all students, staff and visitors will be required to wear masks inside FSISD schools, facilities and buses.
The district says that more information will be made available as questions arise.
