April 19, 2021

During its regular meeting on Monday, April 19, the Wimberley ISD Board of Trustees voted to approve changes to the WISD Return to School Plan. The Board approved the district's COVID Task Force recommendation regarding modifications to the face coverings/masks protocol. The updated protocol is as follows:

  • Effective April 26, 2021 face coverings/masks will be optional for all students at Jacob's Well Elementary School and Blue Hole Primary School.
  • Effective May 27, 2021* face coverings/masks will be optional for all WISD students, all WISD staff and faculty, and all visitors/parents to WISD facilities.
WISD will continue to honor all notes from healthcare professionals, including those from dentists, dermatologists, and mental health providers for those students who are unable to wear masks due to health conditions.
*The last day of school at all WISD campuses was moved to Wednesday, May 26, which will now be the early-release, final day of classes.
