Changes to the local public health status may necessitate changes to our
2021-2022 Health and Safety Plan throughout the year.

The COVID Task Force is monitoring the guidance for schools provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the Texas Education Agency, local and state officials and health departments.  The Briarwood School will comply with required practices and standards of care; however, we may also implement more than the minimal requirements in order to meet the health safety standards that we believe will best serve our school community. Briarwood and Tuttle School will follow health safety protocols to keep virus transmission as low as possible in order to safely continue school.  The cooperation of faculty and staff, students and parents will be essential to this endeavor; thank you for supporting our efforts. If you have questions about the COVID policy and procedures, please email covidtaskforce@briarwoodschool.org.

The Briarwood and Tuttle School will continue a layered prevention approach to protect our students, families, faculty and staff and to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 within our school community.  As long as virus transmission within our local community remains low, we will operate school on campus with fewer restrictions than last year.  The COVID Task Force will be monitoring COVID-19 updates through the Texas Medical Center website. This will help us gain a thorough understanding of COVID-19 infection rates in our community, and we will make decisions based on the data provided on this site.

COVID-19 vaccinations are strongly encouraged for all individuals who are eligible for the vaccine; however, the school will not be requiring vaccinations for either students or staff.
