Houston ISD cancels classes on Election Day

HOUSTON, TX – The Houston Independent School District has opted to not hold any virtual or in-person classes on Election Day, as per district officials in a statement on late Tuesday. 

This decision was a reversal of a previous decision that had classes only taking place virtually on November 3rd. 

District officials have requested district staff members to take the day to practice their civic duty as American citizens and participate in this historic election.

This means that a student holiday on February 24th has now been replaced by Election Day. Some staff members will be allowed to take a comp day. 

More than 100 HISD schools will be used as polling places on Election Day and classes will be held as normal on February 24th now.
