PSJA ISD approves unanimously mask mandate in schools


The Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District school board unanimously approved a resolution mandating the use of face masks in schools during a special board meeting.

The resolution states that all students, staff, parents and visitors in PSJA facilities are required to wear facemasks, unless excused in writing for medical reasons from a licensed physician. 

The PSJA school board also authorized legal counsel to file suit against Texas Governor Greg Abbott to prohibit the enforcement of Abbott’s executive order. 

A survey sent out by the district showed that 98.73% of PSJA parents supported the use of facemasks in schools.
