Local Announcements and Updates
August 15, 2021 Announcement
This afternoon, the Texas Supreme Court temporarily blocked the masks requirement mandate issued by Dallas County last week, which affects our public schools in Irving. Irving ISD will adhere to the Supreme Court’s decision until further guidance on the matter is provided.
Starting tomorrow, Monday, August 16, students, staff, and visitors are highly encouraged to wear masks on district property and at district-sponsored events.
Although masks are optional, we trust our employees and all other stakeholders to take personal responsibility. As a community, we have a shared commitment to protecting not only ourselves but also those around us. Meanwhile, we will continue to keep everyone informed on any developments. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate together during these challenging times.

Consistent with the guidance of Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, Irving ISD will require all students and staff to wear masks on district property and at district events for the foreseeable future, effective at 11:59 PM today, Wednesday, August 11. As a community, we have a shared commitment to protecting not only ourselves but also those around us.
