All Houston ISD schools and offices will be open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26. It is a designated inclement weather make-up day.
If a parent chooses to not to send his or her child to school, HISD will follow the current policies in determining whether that student’s absence is excused or unexcused. You can find more information on the district’s attendance policies here and here.
The Texas Education Agency mandates procedures for setting calendars and for designating and publicizing makeup days, and the public has an extended opportunity in advance of the calendar’s adoption to comment on those days.
