The following guidelines for the limited re-opening of MISD facilities follow the guidelines of TEA (Texas Education Agency) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control).

All gymnasiums will be closed for public use at this time. Only facility parking lots, auditoriums, cafetoriums, cafeterias, stadiums, and fields will be available for rent. Each rental request will be monitored for capacity attendance based on the most recent Governor’s Executive Order which is outlined in the guidelines below.


Avoid being in crowded areas of an auditorium, such as the foyer before or after the performance or during an intermission.

Keep at least two empty seats (or six feet separation) between parties in any row, except as follows: Two or more members of the same household can sit adjacent to one another, with two seats (or six feet separation) empty on either side. Two individuals who are not members of the same household but who are attending together can sit adjacent to one another, with two seats (or six feet separation) empty on either side.

Alternate rows between attendees (every other row left empty).

District staff will perform important duties (e.g., open facility, **disinfect and clean facilities after each usage, provide hand sanitizer and restrict the availability of restrooms). If there is a need to increase cleaning and safety protocols to accommodate additional services, additional costs will be assessed.
