This morning, Katy ISD sent out an announcement to parents regarding the upcoming 2020-21 school year. The message included a survey which will be available through this Thursday, June 25. The District also announced that Hayes Elementary has been selected as a temporary COVID-19 testing site.
In a video message, Katy ISD Superintendent Dr. Ken Gregorski addressed parents today regarding the upcoming 2020-21 academic year.
“While this health crisis is far from over Governor Abbott has announced that schools may resume for in-person instruction this fall,” says Gregorski.
While students can go to school, remote learning will be available for parents who want or feel their students need that route of learning. The District is working to set up a structured remote learning option.

Instructional Calendar will Remain the Same
At this time, the instructional calendar will remain the same with students returning to school on August 19. However, school will look different as the District works to meet and exceed safety procedures.
While instructional dates remain the same, start and end times may differ as schools work to welcome and release students in a safe manner. This includes allowing time for busses to properly clean between routes.
The Katy ISD survey was emailed to parents. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, and will be available through this Thursday, June 25.
