BISD Announces Update Regarding Masks

Beginning Thursday, April 15, wearing a mask for BISD students, staff, and visitors will become optional while in district facilities, on school buses, and at school-sanctioned events.


  • Masks are encouraged for visitors while on campus, and most visitor restrictions remain in place.
  • Please check with your daycare or after-school program for any mask requirements they may enforce.
  • Hand sanitizer, availability of on-site COVID testing, classroom cleaning supplies, handwashing protocols, and social distancing encouragement remain in place throughout the district.
  • Please remember, masks have been a critical component of keeping students and staff in school by limiting close contact exposures. If someone around you tests positive, the decision not to wear a mask significantly increases your chances of being quarantined.
  • While no longer required, everyone has the opportunity to continue to wear a mask. We will be courteous and respectful of those who choose either route.


If you have specific questions, please contact your campus for answers specific to your child.
