The Leander Independent School district released the following statement regarding Gov. Abbott’s executive order rescinding the statewide mask order:

“Leander ISD will continue to prioritize student, staff and community health by following the guidance of our state and local health agencies as outlined in our current COVID-19 protocols. We will still enforce our existing mask protocols and social distancing requirements.

As we work to slow community spread of COVID-19 and minimize the health risks of in-person learning, we will work with health departments and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) regarding health and safety in our schools. We will adjust when it is safe and appropriate to do so.”
