Message Regarding Fort Bend County Face Mask Order

Aug 12, 2021 | Community Relations

On Wednesday, Aug. 11, Fort Bend County issued a temporary restraining order challenging Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting local governments from implementing mask mandates. Last night, Fort Bend County Judge KP George announced that the county’s temporary restraining order was approved by a district court.

At this time, the county has provided COVID-19 guidelines for school districts, but has not mandated face masks in public schools.

Therefore, Lamar CISD will continue to follow the Board-approved COVID-19 protocols and face coverings are optional.

The District will continue to monitor this situation. We will also keep you updated on any changes as necessary via email and the District’s website.
