As school districts prepare for the upcoming academic year, Killeen ISD has announced some additional procedures in an effort to help keep everybody safe and healthy for in-person instruction.

According to KISD's website, face coverings will be required for all students with only a few exclusions. Face coverings must follow the dress code, but staff and students can wear their own.

The district is also working on plans for students' daily arrival and departure, plus in-between class congestion in hallways and lunch periods.

Classrooms will also be impacted, as teachers can establish 'teacher zones' around their desks to ensure proper social distancing.

Regular hand washing and sanitizing will also be encouraged.

From Killeen ISD

Killeen ISD continues to evaluate and implement each of these protocols and practices because the District takes the health and safety of all our students, staff, and their families very seriously.

These moves are meant to keep everybody safe and healthy during these uncertain times of COVID-19. Parents will have the option for their child to begin the school year with in-person learning or through a virtual platform designed and delivered by KISD educators.
