Gov. Greg Abbott has issued an executive order addressing the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic going forward. The order includes a recommendation that schools remain closed until May 4.
Following the order from the governor, Pearland ISD announced in a press release that it will be suspending normal operations until May 4 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Remote learning and free curbside meals for students will continue for the duration of the closure.
PISD Superintendent John Kelly said in the press release that they can not predict if normal school operations and activities will resume in April, May or June, including graduation.
“While our hundreds of senior students will complete high school requirements and be pronounced graduates, it remains very uncertain whether an accompanying ceremony can or will occur,” Kelly said in the press release.
Friendswood ISD will also be suspending normal operations until May 4, district officials said. District officials will be working to make sure the community has the most updated information in this rapidly changing time.
