Conroe, Montgomery and Willis ISDs have extended their school closures through May 4 following a recommendation from Gov. Greg Abbott. Both districts have implemented online education.

"While this extension delays the return to normalcy that we all long for, we know it is the right decision to protect the health of our Conroe ISD family and greater community," CISD Superintendent Curtis Null said in a statement.

Null said the district will continue to communicate changes as they come and to provide distance learning and distribute meals as planned.

"While we miss seeing all of our students and staff, I am proud of our teachers and students on a successful launch of online learning yesterday," WISD Superintendent Tim Harkrider said in a statement. "We know these are challenging times, and we want to assure you that we are working hard to provide meaningful instruction."

MISD Superintendent Beau Rees directed residents to the district's website for more information on ongoing remote learning.

"We will get through this together," Rees said in a statement.
