Kingwood High School is Open!
Kingwood High School is open a little more than six months after Hurricane Harvey dropped more than 30 inches of rain on the Lake Houston area. Kingwood High School reopened Monday, March 19, after sustaining significant damage. During Tuesday’s board of trustees meeting, HISD administrators applauded district staff members, families, community and numerous others for their patience and dedication to reopening KHS. “This has been an extraordinary year for our entire school district and community,” Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said. “Everybody has experienced it in a different way, and it’s been phenomenal to see this Humble ISD family come together and support each other in the way that the entire community has.” KHS was the Humble ISD facility that sustained the most costly damage from Harvey, with floodwaters reaching 6 feet on the first floor and several inches on the second floor, Director of Public Communications Jamie Mount said.
