2022-2023 CISD School Calendar

The CISD Board of Trustees has approved the 2022-2023 calendar. For your planning purposes, please download the calendar here.

We thank you in advance for planning all vacations and travel outside of the school calendar. When students are absent, they miss valuable instruction that takes place daily. In addition to the loss of that instructional time, Texas schools are rated not only on academic performance, but also on student attendance. Daily attendance plays a large role in our accountability rating from the state.

We appreciate your support in this matter, and look forward to a great school year!

Roadmap to Remaining Open

The content on the Roadmap to Remaining Open webpages are designed to provide information relevant for the 2021-2022 school year. The details on this page are subject to change as we receive guidance from the Texas Education Agency, Governor’s Office, and State and local officials. Please check back often for the most up-to-date information.

The District is now at a level one. To see the full Safety Alert Levels chart, please click on the Roadmap to Remaining Open button below.

A Message from the School Nurse

Please keep your child home if they are showing any signs of illness or reporting that they do not feel well.

For example, if your child comes to you in the morning and reports any of the following symptoms: cough, sore throat, stomachache, or headache, or tells you they had diarrhea or vomiting, DO NOT send them to school. Please keep your student home and monitor the symptom or symptoms until they resolve.
