Friday’s missed school day will not need to be made up due to the inclement weather minutes built into the CFISD school calendar. We will be requesting that TEA grant us a waiver for additional missed days due to the effects of Thursday night’s storm.

Due to the recent storm and widespread power outages our community has experienced, spring 2024 final exams for seniors will be waived. Any senior needing to take the final exam to improve his/her overall average may contact the director of instruction on their campus.

Exams for underclassmen, grades 9-11, will continue as scheduled for Tuesday-Thursday of next week.

Spring Branch ISD: All schools remain closed in SBISD for Tuesday

“As of this afternoon, roughly a third of our schools and a number of our central facilities remain without power. As many of you may be experiencing in your own homes, power is not always stable. In some cases, power is coming on and then going back off. Our phone service provider also continues to be unstable, preventing inbound and outbound calls from going through. A large number of our staff and families continue to remain without power.”

Staff who should report to work Tuesday:

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 Tuesday.

Secondary schools: Final exams are happening as planned when students return to school, but the grades will only be counted if they affect a student’s final grade in a positive way.

Help for families: Check the resources link on the SBISD website if your family needs food, water, or other support.

If you have lost housing or been displaced due to damage to your residence making it unlivable as a result of the last Thursday’s storm, contact your campus to request a Student Residency Questionnaire when school reopens. For additional questions, call 713-251-2495 once the district resumes normal operations.
