DeSoto, TX - An outpouring of generosity is helping a North Texas school district keep students and staff safe as classrooms reopen for the new school year. The DeSoto Independent School District says Dallas-based health care company Medcillary donated 50,000 KN95 masks to the district.

The supply is valued at more than $150,000 -- nearly double the expense the district would've faced to replace the PPE, officials said.

A fire in late August destroyed the district's stockpile of personal protective equipment -- disposable masks to reusable masks, gloves, thermometers, hand sanitizers and face shields -- and put plans for in-person learning in jeopardy.
