The Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) updated guidelines were just posted. Our Charter Holder Board will have the authority to make mask determinations for our schools. As per Legal Counsel, the Board’s authority and jurisdiction over this matter is confirmed by TEA.
Therefore, Triumph Public High Schools will continue to require masks and will continue to require that all established safety protocol be adhered to. Moreover, a week-by-week reassessment of any COVID-19 resurgence will take place, as this will allow TPHS to follow a sensible approach to this issue that places student and staff safety and health first.
Furthermore, the TX Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has now indicated that school personnel are now eligible to get vaccinated. Please encourage staff to get vaccinated ASAP. Follow the link below, to the DSHS website for more information.
