Next week, HISD will announce new mascots for four schools that will replace mascots which are now banned by the district.

The district will reveal new mascots on Tuesday for Lamar and Westbury high schools, and Hamilton and Welch middle schools. Those schools currently have mascots that some feel are offensive to Native Americans.

The four schools will start using their new mascots when the new school years starts.
