PSJA school board votes to mandate masks in schools
During a special board meeting Thursday night, the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District school board unanimously approved a resolution mandating the use of face masks in schools.
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.
