Pearland ISD extends suspension of classroom instruction to April 10

The Pearland Independent School District announced today that all classes are being suspended through April 10.
The district had initially planned to cancel classes for only 5 days resuming on March 20.  But now all instruction is being put off until almost mid-April.
In a statement, Superintendent John Kelly said:
Dear Pearland ISD Family,
Pearland ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April 10, in an effort to support the nation’s need to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Houston area continues to see an increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 and health officials report that this number is expected to continue to increase as more testing is made available.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. The President has publicly shared that the community should not gather in groups larger than 10 people. The district will remain flexible as we plan for long-term delivery of instruction and continue to navigate the many details of this unprecedented situation.
Please continue to monitor your email and visit the district website and social media channels for more information on plans to deliver instruction and information on our Grab & Go meal program. The health of Pearland ISD students, staff and community is the district’s top priority and we are working to ensure the community has the most current information available.
Thank you,
Dr. John P. Kelly
Superintendent of Schools, Pearland ISDPear
