Letter from Superintendent

October 5, 2021

Dear West Oso ISD Parents/Guardians and Students,

This letter is to notify you and your student(s) attending West Oso ISD schools that at a special called board meeting on Monday, October 4, 2021, the West Oso ISD Board of Trustees voted to rescind the mask mandate. This decision of not requiring a mask while on West Oso ISD property is effective Tuesday, October 5, 2021. 

West Oso ISD strongly encourages all parents, students, and the school community to continue using a face covering (mask) to help protect our students, staff, and families from exposure to COVID-19 and its variants that are now surging in this area. As you are aware, a vaccine is not currently available for children under the age of 12 who have very little personal protection against the virus. We also have students and staff who suffer immune-suppressed systems and must be protected while on campus.  We respectfully request that you assist us in keeping everyone safe and healthy in our schools.

Since returning to in-person instruction on Monday, August 23, 2021, we are deeply grateful to all parents who have worked with us in protecting our students by having them wear a face mask and following all COVID-19 protocols and guidelines. This has resulted in continuing with in-person instruction at all campuses and allowing students to participate in school activities and sports. We continue to encourage all eligible parents and students ages 12 and above to participate in the vaccine process that is available through the Nueces County Health Department.

Please know that our staff will also be strongly encouraged to wear masks and continue following all COVID-19 protocols and guidelines in order to keep our campuses open and our students in school. Our individual behavior of also using a mask when on school property is the best way to accomplish and demonstrate individual responsibility by protecting ourselves and the children who attend our schools.

I sincerely appreciate your continued support of keeping our community safe and our schools open during these challenging times.

Sincerely,

Signature of Conrado Garcia

Conrado Garcia
Superintendent of Schools
West Oso ISD
