MISD COVID PROTOCOL

Based on a review of the science, McGregor ISD will be implementing a new 3-stage COVID protocol beginning Tuesday, September 7. You can see the plan below. Here are the highlights:
  • Stage 1 (Positivity Rate < 2%)
    • Masks encouraged but not required
    • Quarantining of siblings/close contacts in the same household
    • Short-term campus closures if needed
  • Stage 2 (Positivity Rate between 2% and 5%)
    • Face coverings required for seven (7) days or until the positivity rate drops below 2%, whichever is longer
    • Quarantining of siblings/close contacts in the same household
    • Short-term campus closures if needed
  • Stage 3 (Positivity Rate > 5%)
    • Campus closure
In addition, CDC guidance states that individuals over 2 years old should wear a mask while on public transportation. They further state that the masking requirement applies to school buses. Beginning next Tuesday, all bus riders will need to wear a face covering.
