Chávez High School staff and students celebrated their school’s namesake with their annual Chávez-Huerta Symposium on Saturday, March 25. The Symposium, a combination of multiple events organized in honor of César Chávez and Dolores Huerta, was held in person this year for the first time since its inception in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Friday, March 31, 2023, all HISD campuses and offices will be closed in observance of Chávez-Huerta Day, a national commemorative holiday aimed to honor labor and civil rights activists César Chávez and Dolores Huerta.
Schools and offices will reopen for normal business on Monday, April 3, 2023.
The HISD Police Department will be patrolling district facilities. Emergencies may be reported by calling 713-892-7777.
MLK Day is not just a national holiday celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s a call to action and the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service. The Wheatley High School community answered that call with a resource fair, food distribution, and garden clean up.
