The Tomball ISD Board of Trustees gave approval to apply for an attendance waiver for missed school days related to Hurricane Harvey. In preparation for the storm and in response to the damage of the storm, Tomball ISD schools were closed from Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, through Friday, Sept. 1, 2017. Tomball ISD received a letter from the education commissioner indicating that districts located in the 58 counties that were included in the governor’s disaster proclamation are eligible to apply for this waiver. The letter also indicated that districts applying for this waiver will not have to make up the days in the school calendar. Therefore, Tomball ISD will not change the 2017-2018 school calendar.
