Protocols for Face Coverings

Protective measures, including the use of face coverings, will be determined by the level of disease activity of COVID-19. The District will rely on data from the Department of State Health Services (DSHS), Collin County Health Care Services and Denton County Public Health to determine the disease activity level and the appropriate protective measures. The disease activity level categories below are based on the recommendations of local and state health officials. Each Sunday afternoon, the COVID-19 activity level for the upcoming week will be posted on the District website and communicated with students, parents and staff.

Students’ individual needs will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Requests for accommodations should be submitted to campus administration.
