Back to School 2020

  • Humble ISD has developed our 2020-2021 Back-to-School Plan based upon the latest guidance from TEA, the Governor, and parent input.  We look forward to providing excellent educational experiences, including fine arts, athletics and electives, for all students.

    Humble ISD understands that each family has unique concerns, due to health or other circumstances, about returning to daily routines while coexisting with COVID-19. We want you to know that Humble ISD will support parents in making the decisions that are best for your families.

    Humble ISD has developed three options so that parents can choose what works best for each child. On June 24, 2020, each guardian received an email with a link to submit your child’s reservation for one of the three options:

    • On Campus Instruction (For secondary schools, students would likely begin the year with blended learning, participating both on campus and online on an A/B daily schedule. Details for elementary and secondary schools are posted in the On Campus FAQ section below.)

    • Online Instruction (asynchronous learning - students are not always online at the same time; Humble ISD teachers post instructional plans/learning sets, teaching in large groups, small groups and individually)

    • Online Instruction / UIL Athletics and Fine Arts On Campus (middle and high school students)

    Grading policies will be the same for all students.

    Your reservation will be shared with your child’s school. Parent requests will be honored to the extent possible. If your circumstances change, there will be a process to change options before or during the school year. 

    We know you have many questions! As you know, community health data is quickly changing and we are constantly monitoring it. However, at this time, we want to bring preliminary plans forward with the understanding that as we get closer to August, they could change.
