Hays CISD Academic Calendar Changed - Nov 8th & Feb 18th Now Student Holidays

On Monday, October 18, 2021, the Hays CISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously (7 to 0 vote) to add two student holidays to this school year to provide additional planning and preparation time for teachers. The recommendation to the Board to make the change comes from a unanimous (26 to 0 vote) of the District Leadership Team, comprised of teachers, parents, community members, and business leaders.

The two new student holidays are: Monday, November 8, 2021, and Friday, February 18, 2022 (creating a 4-day student and family holiday for the Presidents Day break).

Teachers are working hard this year, helping students close pandemic-related learning gaps from the past year-and-a-half. And, teachers for our youngest learners are completing additional legislatively-required training in reading.

At present, no change in the daily bell schedule will be required. If bell schedule changes are needed in the spring semester it would only be a matter of a few minutes per day and campuses would communicate the change.

The amended Hays CISD 2021 – 2022 Academic Calendar (which takes effect immediately) is now online at:

Thank you for your continued support of our teachers and staff this year as they work to help our students transition back to learning at full speed.
