Kolter Update

HISD announced Thursday, Aug. 31, that HISD staff will return to schools to begin work on Tuesday, September 5th. Teachers will return for a work day on Friday, September 8. The first day of school for all students has been set for Monday, September 11.

There has been NO OFFICIAL word from HISD regarding the specific status of Kolter Elementary or its start date. The message below is an excerpt from what was shared from the Kolter Principal on Friday, Sept 1 (before 9:20am). 

Happy Friday, Kolter family! 

As we head into our first post Harvey weekend, I have a couple of quick updates: 

Uniforms and Meals: 

Students will not be required to dress in school uniforma attire during this first semested. We will revisit the uniform topic in January. All HISD students will be provided three, free meals a day for the coming year. More information around Houston's ISD meal plan can be found on the HISD website. 

Back to School (this is important):

As stated by the distric yesterday, all students are to return to school Monday, September 11. As of right now, right this minute, I have heard nothing about our campus being moved elsewhere or our students being split among campuses that have availability. Since I have heard NOTHING about that, I would advise that we move forward with that mindset. I had said over and over this week that my goal is to have our family back together, on our campus, for this school year. It remains my goal and priority going forward. The building did have significant impacts, but there has been a team of 50+ people there drying it out, cleaning it our and getting ready for our return. I have also promised that when and it information changes, gets updated or is of immediate significance, I will tell you. As I return to work this coming Monday, myself and my leadership team will be moving forwad with this above plan in place. 

Continued love and strength to all of you, 

Julie Dickinson, Principal


Also note that TEA has offered a waiver of all missed school days through September 1. Any additional missed days are evaluated on a per district basis. This means that HISD must apply for the waiver and these days will not need to be made up during the school year.
