Keller ISD is moving up the expiration of its COVID-19 safety protocols from July 6 to June 1.
Based on an assessment of our own data and the positive trend in decreasing COVID-19 cases, the District will move up the planned expiration date to June 1, 2021. Summer school, camps, and all other District activities (inside and outside of KISD facilities) will operate without the current protocols in place, effective June 1.
Additionally, for those attending Keller ISD’s Graduation Ceremonies on May 30 at Globe Life Field, the venue has updated its COVID-19 safety protocols to state that “masks will be recommended” while in the ballpark, “except while actively eating and drinking.”
We’re planning for the upcoming school year to take place without the need for the COVID-19 protocols that were in place this year (i.e. face masks, contact tracing, strict social distancing, etc.). As a best practice, Keller ISD will continue to put an emphasis on proper hygiene decisions, including frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and encouraging students and employees to remain home when sick. The District will also continue to monitor the pandemic and work closely with state and local health officials.
In the meantime, we look forward to a healthy summer and a return to face-to-face learning and in-person activities for the 2021-22 school year.
