Harris County Delays In-Person School Attendance
Dear Legacy Community,
Today, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and City of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner have issued Declarations of Local Disaster for Public Health Emergency to take measures to reduce the possibility of exposure to COVID-19 and to promote the health and safety of Houston and Harris County residents. The order includes the following:
School systems must not re-open schools for the 2020-2021 school year to students for on-campus, face-to-face instruction until after September 7, 2020.
Virtual instruction is allowed consistent with individual district or school academic plans. Instructors may use classrooms for video streaming if they are alone in the classroom and building occupancy does not exceed 10%.
All school-sponsored events and activities, including but not limited to clubs, sports, extracurricular activities, fairs, exhibitions, academic and/or athletic competitions, must not take place in-person, on or off campus, until school systems resume on-campus instruction.
The safety of our students is our highest priority and we must abide by the order. Our first day of school is August 5, 2020, and it will be held virtually. All sports, sports training, and extracurricular activities are postponed until after September 7, 2020.
We will continue to communicate major updates via email, social media, and through your perspective programs as they relate to the safety of our school and the start of our on-campus school programming.
