With COVID-19 cases continuing to decline and the vaccine more widely available, Frisco ISD implemented changes to its disease mitigation practices on June 1, 2021.
Effective June 1, 2021, all previous COVID-19 protocols were replaced with the following protocols:
Face coverings will not be required for staff or students.
Campuses will work to ensure no student is treated differently as a result of their choice to wear a mask or not wear a mask.
Visitors will be allowed on campus according to standard visiting rules.
Six-foot social distancing will be maintained when feasible, particularly in classrooms.
Staff and students will continue to be expected to wash their hands frequently throughout the day.
Parents and employees will continue to be required to report confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 to campus administration or their supervisor, but this information will no longer be tracked on a District COVID-19 Dashboard.
Staff and students with a confirmed case of COVID-19 must quarantine for 10 days from the date of symptom onset or positive test if no symptoms.
Parents/staff will be notified when there is a positive case in their student’s class/staff member’s class or department.
Staff will not conduct close contact reviews and students and staff will not be required to quarantine for exposure.
Frisco ISD expects to continue the same protocols listed above for summer 2021 in the fall, with one exception noted below. Social distancing will be less feasible during the school year as more students and staff are on campus.
Frisco ISD had intended to offer students in grades 3-12 the choice of in-person or virtual learning during the 2021-22 school year. But after the regular session of the Texas Legislature ended on May 31 without final approval of a bill that would have expanded online learning in Texas and provided funding for full-time virtual students, FISD had no choice but to put these plans on hold. All students will attend classes on campus starting with the first day of the new school year on Thursday, August 12.
