Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) / Face Covering
One of the most effective measures to prevent the spread of the virus includes the utilization of facemasks. All students in Fort Worth ISD will wear face masks while on a school bus, in a school facility, and throughout the school day. This requirement is subject to change.
- Masks include non-medical grade disposable face masks or cloth face coverings over the nose and mouth.
- The District will provide students with cloth and disposable masks as needed.
Students may also choose to wear their own, washable, reusable mask from home.
- Masks must adhere to the District dress code policy on clothing and accessories,
FNCA (Local), no lewd, vulgar or offensive clothing or pictures/symbols that promote hate, gang violence, drugs, etc.
- Students unable to wear face masks for documented health reasons may be provided with a reusable face shield as an alternative.
- Individual needs regarding face masks will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Requests for accommodations should be submitted to campus administration.
