COVID Information

  • The health and well-being of our students and staff is one of the Wylie ISD's top priorities.  For the 2021-22 school year, we will continue to work with students and staff to promote good health and hygiene habits to help reduce the transmission of illness in schools. The district will also continue to clean touched surfaces daily and perform extra sanitizing measures in classrooms and areas where a person who is ill or has tested positive with COVID has been. Please continue to visit Wylie ISD's COVID-19 page for the latest information and resources.
