The World Series is the gift that keeps on giving, at least for the city of Houston! In celebration of the Houston Astros’ World Series win, several Houston area schools and colleges have canceled classes so students and faculty can participate in parades and festivities in the team’s honor.
So far, Aldine, Alief, Houston, Fort Bend, and Lamar Consolidated Independent School Districts, in addition to YES Prep have announced closures.
At higher learning institutions, Houston Community College District, Texas Southern University, the University of Houston and University of St. Thomas have halted classes for the day.
HISD Superintendent Millard House II released the following statement on Sunday.
Dear HISD Community:
Our Houston Astros won the 2022 World Series!
It’s been an incredible season, and we want to celebrate our national champions.
All HISD schools and offices will be closed Monday, Nov. 7, to allow our students, staff, and families to attend the victory parade.
We are proud to have the Houston Astros organization as a partner in education and in our schools. Let’s show our support for the home team.
