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.
