KISD campuses located on Post are considered Fort Hood facilities. The General Order is effective immediately.
Further information regarding face coverings for students will be released by the district ahead of the school year. All KISD students will learn in-person beginning Monday, August 16, 2021.
KISD operates the following campuses on post:
  • Audie Murphy Middle School
  • Oveta Culp Hobby Elementary
  • Montague Village Elementary
  • Meadows Elementary
  • Clear Creek Elementary
  • Clarke Elementary

The Deputy Secretary of Defense’s Memorandum, “Updated Mask Guidance for all DoD Installations and Other Facilities,” dated 28 July 2021, all Service Members, Federal employees, onsite contractor employees, and visitors – regardless of vaccination status – will wear a mask while inside all Fort Hood facilities. This order is effective immediately. The Senior Commander will publish an updated General Order #1 (GO #1) to reflect this new guidance.
The KISD Public Health Guide has been updated to reflect the new General Order for employees.
