Humble ISD will continue to inform parents on recovery work at Kingwood High School throughout the recovery process. All of the classrooms in the 2000 area are  painted! The Commons is now clean and sealed against recontamination, and work in the kitchen continues. Cleaning and removal in the first floor fine arts wing is underway. Humble ISD’s goal is for Kingwood High School students to be back in the academic wing for classes at their home campus by Monday, March 19. The next KHS recovery status report will be emailed after Thanksgiving break to Kingwood and Summer Creek parents.
