First Day of School for All Students Now September 8 - Revised School Calendar

TISD Board of Trustees approved changes to our 2020-21 School Calendar during a Special Board Meeting called on Tuesday, Aug. 4. Rather than begin school with all students in a virtual environment on August 18, Tomball ISD will push back the start of its 2020-2021 school year and begin either with face-to-face instruction or in our Tomball Virtual School on Tuesday, September 8, depending on the choice your family made via our Commitment Form.

A Message from Dr. Z

Tomball ISD Family,
As we continue to receive more guidance from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on what is required of us to return our students and staff to in-class instruction, please know that Tomball ISD will work toward providing our families and staff with the back to school options that are best for our community.
While our team monitors the fluidity of information that we receive from the Governor and TEA, we wanted to share that we have not made any definitive decisions at this time regarding our reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. Decisions from the Governor and TEA will help guide some aspects of how we safely return to school, but we do anticipate having discretion over other aspects.
A robust Re-Entry Task Force is working diligently to make these important and informed decisions. This collaborative team has been instrumental in developing operational procedures and is working through scenarios for returning students to schools this fall.
Tomball ISD will open in August and is considering all learning options at this time, including in-class direct instruction, a hybrid model of learning and/or remote learning.
The health and safety of our students and staff remains at the forefront of our decision making and we are hopeful we will return to school with basic health and safety measures in place (washing hands, use of hand sanitizer, cleaning surfaces, looking at ways to lower the number of students on buses, self-health screenings, being thoughtful about arrival/dismissal, etc.) while also considering requiring the use of masks.
Ultimately our task will be to abide by the guidelines set forth by TEA but for the areas where we have discretion, to make decisions that are reflective of our community – both in the spread of COVID-19 and in weighing the desires of staff & community with health & safety guidelines. 
Thanks so much for all of your feedback through our Family Engagement and Staff surveys as this information provided us a guideline to work with as we develop these necessary plans.
We will continue to keep you posted as soon as we have the necessary information. We are excited to start school on August 18!
