Letter to Parents - June 4, 2020

As one of the most diverse school districts in the nation, HEB ISD has long valued the importance of recognizing and respecting diversity.  Social injustice of any kind has no place in our classrooms or anywhere in our school district.

I believe HEB ISD must be a safe and inclusive environment for all students and staff.  We cannot remain silent and we will stand against hate, intolerance, and racism.

Our HEB ISD family must stand together to set this example of compassion, dignity, and respect for our staff, our students, and our community.
