Update #17 – Klein ISD COVID-19

Klein ISD buildings will remain closed until at least May 4, 2020, in alignment with the executive order issued earlier today by Governor Greg Abbott. The district will continue to provide instruction and operate remotely during this time. 

We care about the health and safety of our Klein ISD community and will continue to do our part to support efforts to “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please follow the physical distancing orders and recommendations provided by the Center for Disease Control, local and federal officials, and health care experts. It is extremely important for our students and families to limit contact with others outside their immediate families during this time, and we join our health care colleagues in strongly recommending that everyone stays home and avoids close contact with others. For your own safety and the safety of others, please remember that this is not the time to gather in groups.

A message from Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown

I hope you are safe and healthy in this challenging time. What we are experiencing today is certainly not what any of us had planned for our students or for our community. Please know how grateful I am for your continued support and care for one another.

I am especially grateful for the healthcare workers in our community and their courage and dedication to keeping us safe during this difficult time. Thank you to all of you who are on the frontlines of this illness for the sacrifices that you and your families are making to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the challenges we face today, I remain hopeful for the future because I know that we are surrounded by a community of caring people —those who continue to make a positive difference in the lives of children, youth and families in Klein no matter what. Whether teaching remotely, serving food curbside, providing access to technology, or helping in countless other ways, in Klein ISD we always take care of one another and remain committed to doing what is right for our students, staff, and families. 

I miss being with you all. Please stay safe and healthy.

Dr. Jenny McGown
Klein ISD Superintendent
