Hempstead ISD will continue to follow its mandatory COVID-19 mask-wearing policy through Friday, June 4, due to Texas Governor Greg Abbott's May 18 Executive Order Prohibiting Government Entities From Mandating Masks.
Abbott's order states:
"After June 4, no student, teacher, parent, or other staff member or visitor can be required to wear a mask while on campus."
HISD will lift its mandatory mask-wearing policy when the district returns to normal summer business operations, Monday, June 7.
