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 Gov. Abbott to prohibit the enforcement of Abbott's executive order. 

A survey sent out by the district showed that 98.73 percent of PSJA parents supported the use of facemasks in schools, according to a news release from the district.
