    Dear HISD Parent:

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to provide updates and guidance on face-to-face instruction beginning on Monday, October 19. Here are a few quick but important updates and reminders:

    • For detailed information on COVID-19 safety measures in place, you can read the district’s Communicable Disease Plan (CDP) here. The plan outlines the district’s health and safety protocols to ensure the safety of students and staff. The plan and more information can also be accessed on our reopening page.
      • An important update to the CDP includes the designation of spacing in classrooms. Classrooms must be reconfigured to ensure six feet of physical distancing between desks, whenever possible. Reduced space would only be implemented as needed, with the goal continuing to be to place as much space as possible between desks.
    • Attached you will find a helpful Reopening Parent Guide – with FAQs and a Face-to-Face Instruction Guide. All of this information and more can be found at
    • Remember: Parents have until this Friday, September 25 to make their selection for in-person or virtual learning through the HISD Connect Parent Portal. If parents encounter any issues with technology, they also may contact their school to make their selection. We also have created a helpful how-to video to walk you through the process.

    Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and flexibility.


    Grenita F. Lathan, Ph.D.
    HISD Interim Superintendent
