Per the request of the City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management, the Houston Independent School District has closed all of its Refuge of Last Resort locations due to accessibility and safety concerns.  The Army National Guard is picking up the last of the evacuees from Westside High School and Revere Middle School.  HISD police have locked down the remaining schools that were originally activated and per orders of the City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management, anyone who was planning to make their way to one of our schools, should go to one of the listed multi-service centers or directly to the George R. Brown Convention Center (1001 Avenida De Las Americas).  The multi-service centers have been activated by the City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management.

Please Note: It is important that you call the shelters before arriving to see if they are at capacity before arriving.
