HOUSTON – Classes for students of the Spring Branch Independent School District will resume Monday, and officials assured parents they will be flexible.

In a statement released Friday, district officials said they understand that because of Hurricane Harvey’s flooding, several roads have been closed. They said tardiness will not be counted against students until traffic patterns return to normal.

Students who lost backpacks, books, school supplies or uniforms should not worry about returning to school without those items, officials said. They said extra school supplies and other donations are available to help affected students.

The district’s uniform and dress code requirements will also be relaxed, officials said.

Officials said free breakfast and lunch will be offered to students through the month of September, officials said.

Principals will contact parents about any bus route changes, and parents who have a new address should notify the district as soon as possible.

Parents are encouraged to frequently check the district’s website at springbranchisd.com for information.
