Covid Safety Measures in our Schools

Covid Safety Measures in our Schools

The COVID-19 situation in Wylie ISD has been worsening by the day. Given the severity of COVID-19 and the rise of numerous variants, we believe more should be done by the district in order to ensure the safety of students and staff, as well as parents and family members at home.

We request that Wylie ISD:

Enforce a mask mandate for all students and staff in Wylie ISD facilities. (including school transportation)
Reinstate contact tracing.
Encourage all students to sanitize their hands upon entering each new classroom.
Educate students on respiratory etiquette.

Why is this important?

As a parent of children in the Wylie ISD, we are deeply concerned for our children's health and safety. It is scientifically proven that when people are wearing masks correctly, it will help stop spread of Covid. Our kids deserve to have a healthy and safe education in our community. Please help us keep our Wylie ISD students, staff and families healthy this school year.


Reasons for signing

  • Their response to those who have asked for a mask mandate to be enforced is to set up a Virtual Academy that is really home schooling with minimal live instruction, to bury the COVID NUMBERS deep on their website and to even REMOVE THE WORD "MASK" from their recommended precautions. NEGLIGENT MUCH, WYLIE ISD ? Those children who cannot be vaccinated but a willing to wear a mask are the ones being punished because of the 'freedom fighter' parents. THIS IS A HEALTH ISSUE.
  • The safety of all of our kids is so important. Many of us have children with special needs who did not get services they needed last year and need to be on campus, but are also immunocompromised. My son was straight NOT given a 3 x a week 30 min service he NEEDS, and he is not eligible for virtual school. Please help us keep all kids safe, including my baby. Imagine if it was your baby.
