Dear Parents,

The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. The decision has been made to cancel school tomorrow, March 22, 2019. Pasadena ISD is utilizing the most up-to-date information from City and County Officials, as well as Emergency Management Personnel. Even though all shelter in place orders have been lifted and air quality has improved, we now know it is a continually evolving situation. We have been advised that the same conditions present this morning, which caused concerns regarding air quality in our area, could possibly occur again tomorrow. So we have decided to use the day tomorrow to inspect our facilities, wash down our playgrounds, and change air filters as necessary across the district. We will have our own outside contractor monitoring air quality, specifically testing for Benzene around our district.

If conditions continue to be favorable and if air quality is at acceptable levels, there is a possibility your child's scheduled extracurricular events will go on as planned. Your child's coach or sponsor will reach out to you to check on your willingness to allow your child to participate.

Please continue to monitor local news media for the latest information about air quality. Pasadena ISD will communicate future information through our district website, social media, and phone call-out system. An additional source of information related to air quality can be found at www.ReadyHarris.org.

I want to personally thank you for your understanding and patience this week. I appreciate your continued support and I will continue to update you as we learn more in the days to come.

DeeAnn Powell,
Pasadena ISD Superintendent
