Katy ISD announced it will follow Gov. Greg Abbott’s March 31 executive order and extend its temporary closure to May 4, according to a press release.

The district said in the release it will continue online learning. Free meals to Katy-area students will also continue to be provided.


“The district will need to evaluate the timeline of future initiatives and events, such as Bond 2020, [University Interscholastic League] competitions and high school graduations,” the release states. “With the balance of the school year unclear, Katy ISD is currently reviewing these items and anticipates being in the position to release further information closer to the end of April.”

KISD first announced it would postpone the return of students from spring break on March 12. It later extended this temporary closure through April 13.
