FAQs - Summerwood
Will my area be served by a school bus when attendance boundaries change for the 2020-2021 school year?
If my area is zoned to ES #29 but my children want to remain at Summerwood Elementary School, can they? And, will there be a bus?
Currently enrolled students will be allowed to remain at Summerwood Elementary School through the completion of fifth grade if they choose to do so. These students will be transfer students, and their transfer request will be automatically granted. Transportation to and from school for all transfer students in Humble ISD is the parent’s responsibility.
