Splendora ISD will open their schools on August 12.

The district created a separate web page containing frequently asked questions on the school’s reopening plan and how the first days in class will be executed.

The majority of the questions focus more on social distancing, as it is one of the bigger concerns as the start of the school year gets close. District and school staff will monitor closely by making sure desks are six feet apart, recess is conducted safely, and hand-washing and sanitization protocols are performed timely.
