Amid concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Tomball ISD announced March 16 it would be suspending its normal district operations through April 10.

"Because of your support, Tomball ISD is fully committed to continuing high levels of learning despite the unknowns occurring around us due to the fluidity of COVID-19," TISD Superintendent Martha Salazar-Zamora said in a March 16 letter to the district community. "We will remain flexible as district and campus leaders are working diligently to plan for long-term delivery of instruction through remote learning. Our district is dedicated to implementing a plan to provide quality instruction from the comforts of one’s home as we practice social distancing."

The district's March 16 announcement came days after TISD extended its spring break an additional week and announced it would be providing eligible students with up to two meals per day while schools were closed from March 16 to 20. In a March 14 letter, Salazar-Zamora also advised students and staff to report their spring break out-of-state travel to the district.
