Hurricane Harvey makeup date Oct. 9

Alief ISD schools were closed from Friday, August 25 through Friday, September 8, 2017 due to the events of Hurricane Harvey that unfolded. In order to makeup for the lost time, the upcoming student holiday on October 9, Columbus Day, will be a make-up day. This will be the only makeup day given due to the school board’s decision to waiver the other nine missed school days.

The decision was announced in a letter from superintendent HD Chambers to all Alief staff members on September 20.
