Katy ISD to return to standard operations in June

As of June 1, Katy ISD students and staff will no longer be requiring face masks or offering virtual school, Superintendent Ken Gregorski said in an email on April 16.

The move aligns with the expiration of the TEA guidance, Gregorski said.

“Students and staff will no longer be required to wear facial coverings, daily COVID-19 notifications will cease, the Katy Virtual Academy (as implemented this year) will end, and our campuses are especially excited to welcome back all of our parents and volunteers to begin planning for the 2021-22 school year!” Gregorski said in an email.

The campuses will reopen to parents and volunteers at full capacity. For more details on Katy ISD’s return to school, visit www.katyisd.org/returntoschool.
