School news

No school on Monday, May 20.

Dear SBISD Families and Staff,

As of noon today, about 70 percent of our campuses still remain without power. This means our teams are unable to run the necessary checks on our mechanical, HVAC, technology, plumbing, food service and other systems. Additionally, a significant number of our staff and families remain without power.

Thus, we will NOT have school tomorrow, Monday, May 20, 2024.

Offices and Campuses Remain Closed – Certain staff should report to work Monday as noted below.

All district offices and campuses remain closed and offline, including playgrounds, Spark Parks, and secondary school sports courts, fields and tracks.

Grounds, custodial, facilities and planning and construction staff, and technology staff should report as usual. Technology staff should confirm location with their supervisor. School Nutrition Services office staff and managers should await instructions from their supervisor regarding reporting to work Monday.

High School Tests and Graduation Reminders

As noted in our message yesterday, our high school teachers and administrators will work with students regarding assignments and tests. No student will be penalized as a result of these extenuating circumstances. Graduation practice updates will be communicated by campus principals.  As of now, graduations scheduled for next weekend will proceed as planned.

May Regular Board Meeting Update

Given the recent devastating storms and resulting widespread power outages, including a continued power outage at Memorial High School, the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees Meeting scheduled for Monday, May 20, 2024, will be moved to Stratford High School, 14555 Fern Drive, Houston, TX 77079, in the Auditorium, and will begin at 6:00 p.m. on May 20, 2024. The meeting will not be livestreamed but will be recorded.

All Special Presentations previously planned for the May Board Meeting, including the Retiree recognition and reception are cancelled as part of this meeting and will be rescheduled for another date.

Resources for Families

We continue to work with our partners to identify food, water and shelter resources and have created a link on the SBISD website to keep our community updated.

Thank you

Please join us in thanking all of our team members who have been working around the clock to make repairs, remove fallen limbs and debris. We also thank CenterPoint for continuing to keep us abreast of their power restoration efforts.

Communication Updates

We will continue to monitor our facilities and power restoration and will provide a daily update by 4 p.m. regarding school for the following day. 

Take care,

SBISD Communications
