Schools will be shut down on Friday and reopen on Monday. Friday will not be a virtual school day, and high school UIL activities will continue as scheduled. The custodial staff will do extra cleaning  to help prevent the spread of illnesses.

The district had about 650 students and 95 staff members, most being teachers, out for illnesses. This closure is to give them time to recover and minimize the community spread of Covid-19 and other viruses.

“We are asking students, staff and parents to be cautious with your activities during this time away from school,” Director of Communications Courtney Sanguinetti said. “COVID-19 cases are increasing not just in our community but in neighboring areas as well.”
