Masks Optional for Tarkington ISD
LIBERTY COUNTY, Texas – Starting Wednesday, students and teachers at Tarkington ISD were not required to wear a mask at schools. Noel has three children in third, fourth and seventh grades at Tarkington ISD schools. The school board voted to make masks optional after asking the parents in a poll. Humble ISD has made changes saying students under 10 years old do not have to mask up. “Hopefully, they’ll have some common sense and understanding that people still need to wear their masks because it’s still a pandemic out here,” said Fred Fisher.
