CYPRESS — Earlier today, Dr. Mark Henry, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD superintendent, laid out the 50,000-foot plan to keep Cypress-area students learning during the current medical crisis.

Below, you will be able to watch the seven-and-a-half-minute video explaining how students will be educated, how CFISD middle school tracks will be opened, and what to expect in the near future. Also, that CFISD teachers will continue to be paid.

“Dear CFISD community,

Our school district and our country are amidst an unprecedented event. I appreciate your patience and your support during this public health crisis. Please take a few minutes to view my video message to all of you.

Beginning Monday, March 23, CFISD teachers will be contacting their students to share information about our new Learning at Home program, which will be launched on Monday.  Parents will receive another communication about Learning at Home this weekend.

I continue to participate in frequent calls and meetings with local and state health officials, neighboring superintendents and the commissioner of education and will update you regularly as I receive new information. Please continue to check the district website at for updates and resources during this time.

Please stay safe,

Mark Henry, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools”
