Klein ISD students will hopefully return to campuses Feb. 22 after extended district closures due to winter weather, according to a Feb. 19 statement from Superintendent Jenny McGown.

KISD will not have to make up the four days missed to the the winter storm that forced schools to close Feb. 16-19.
McGown said the Texas Education Agency approved the district’s waiver for the inclement weather.



“Although we lost a week of teaching and learning, we will do everything we can to make sure our students receive excellent support in catching up and staying on track,” McGown said.

McGown said several campuses had “minimal” damage due to the weather. As of press time, Klein ISD officials said the district was not able to say which schools were damaged nor how much damages will cost. The district is expected to return to normal operations Feb. 22.

“Our community has always come together in times of need and now is no different,” McGown said. “Campus leaders will be in touch with additional information for employees and families today.”
