Humble ISD board of trustees unanimously approved a 2021-22 school calendar and the name of the incoming Elementary School No. 30 at the Jan. 12 school board meeting.

The district asked for community feedback on its proposed 2021-22 academic calendar throughout the month of December until Jan. 4. Much like the last two years, the calendar features two weeklong breaks in October and February. The first day of school will be Aug. 10, while the last day of school will be May 27.

Although trustees did not discuss the agenda item, board meeting documents stated that 70% of feedback from 552 parents and employees was positive toward the proposed calendar.

"Respondents who commented in favor of the calendar mentioned that they appreciated the consistency of the district using similar calendars year after year, have enjoyed having family time within the school year, and believe that the calendar benefited their children," the board document stated. "Respondents who commented against the calendar mentioned that their children found it hard to get into a routine, and they believe there are too many breaks."

Additionally, trustees approved a name for Elementary School No. 30, which is set to open in August 2021 in the Fall Creek neighborhood at 14910 Woodland Dawn Trail, Humble. The $31.2 million school will have a capacity of 950 students and will alleviate capacity issues at Fall Creek and Ridge Creek elementary schools, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.


The district opened a survey Dec. 10-Jan. 4 to gain community responses from parents who wanted to participate in naming the school and picking school colors and a mascot. Of the 160 responses, 72% preferred the name Autumn Creek Elementary School and 39% preferred the name Stoney Creek Elementary School, according to board meeting documents.

Based on survey responses, trustees unanimously approved the name Autumn Creek Elementary School. Survey results favored blue and orange as the school colors and hawks as the school mascot; trustees did not vote on the school colors and mascot, so those were not chosen at the Jan. 12 meeting.
