On August 11th, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins issued an Executive Order for all childcare centers and Pre-K through 12th grade Public Schools operating in Dallas County. The order includes a requirement for universal indoor masking and other mitigation strategies which is contrary to Governor Abbott’s ban on mask mandates in Texas. The school will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will keep our community members updated.
At this time, Advantage Academy is highly recommending that students, teachers and staff wear a mask until further notice. Advantage Academy continues to be committed to the health and safety of its students, teachers, staff and visitors. Accordingly, the school is encouraging all individuals to wear masks while on school property.
We are continuing robust COVID-19 safety measures with advice from our legal counsel, the CDC and County Health Authorities.
