Following updated federal guidelines and an order from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Houston ISD officially announced that it would keep schools closed until May 4.

The district's web-based learning program, [email protected], got underway March 31.


“We are dealing with an unprecedented crisis, and the safety of our students and staff is our top priority,” interim Superintendent Grenita Lathan said in a news release. “We’re working diligently to ensure our students have the support they need to continue their learning at home until normal district operations resume. I urge parents and students to take advantage of the resources provided and reach out to us for support when they need it.”

May 29 is the last day of school on the regular academic calendar for HISD.
