  • Killeen ISD follows guidance from the CDC and coordinates with the Texas Department of Health to provide the safest environment for our students' health. We have a plan of action for infection control measures and monitoring any contagious illnesses affecting our area. The district will be informed of any information affecting public health provided by these entities. Health Services supports the good health of children and adolescents by working with parents, teachers, health professionals, and school administrators to strengthen successful health programs at school.
