HISD schools, offices closed Monday as precautionary measure due to severe weather conditions

Houston Independent School District schools and offices will be closed Monday, April 18 as a precautionary measure because of severe inclement weather and the related potential for dangerous road conditions.

HISD officials have been closely monitoring the weather forecast and have determined that storms and heavy rains predicted for parts of the Houston area may make for dangerous driving Monday morning. As a result, all HISD schools and district administrative offices will be closed Monday as a precautionary measure. All district events — including professional development and recruiting sessions — also will be cancelled.

Schools and offices are expected to re-open at their regularly scheduled time on Tuesday, April 19. Should that change due to deteriorating weather conditions, we will notify you.

The district make-up day will be May 26.
