HUTTO, Texas (KXAN) — Hutto Independent School district welcomed 8,957 students this school year, all in person and not virtual. Superintendent Dr. Celina Estrada-Thomas says the district is following County guidelines and requiring students and staff wear masks on campus.
The superintendent is also asking parents, students, teachers and staff to inform the Human Resources department if they are vaccinated. “Right now, I do not have a good reading on the number of people vaccinated in our buildings. If you look at the CDC guidelines, it’s a mitigation strategy. It slows down the spread,” said Superintendent Estrada-Thomas.
The request of vaccination status is voluntary, “it is not required. We are asking for voluntary submission.” The school district says it will use the information to help parents understand the spread of the virus, “It will give our parents a sense of comfort knowing that X percentage of the students and faculty especially in our secondary schools, our middle and high schools are vaccinated,” said Estrada-Thomas.
