Dear CFISD Community,

Our Board of Trustees approved a pivotal agenda item during the April 14 regular meeting that will revert the last day of school back to Thursday, June 5.

On Jan. 31, following two inclement weather days that closed schools, I wrote to you with our intention to designate one of the make-up days for Friday, June 6. This decision was made in order to comply with the Texas Education Agency’s required number of instructional days.

We recently learned, however, of CFISD’s eligibility to request an expedited waiver from the TEA allowing the district to conduct additional staff training in lieu of one day of student instruction.

Last night the Board unanimously approved this waiver as requested by the administration, thus designating Friday, June 6 as a student holiday and staff development day for all campus personnel.

Thank you for your patience as we work to align district policies with state law for the benefit of our students, staff and community.


Mark Henry, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
