Due to lingering effects brought about by last week's extreme winter weather, Comal and New Braunfels ISDs have extended school closures into the coming week.

Both districts announced over the weekend that Monday, Feb. 22, would be a student holiday.

At Comal ISD, that day will also count as a teacher prep day, according to an announcement on the district's website.

A statement from New Braunfels ISD Superintendent Randy Moczygemba sent to district parents and employees said the Monday holiday is necessary for the cleanup of campuses and to address needed repairs.

"We do expect a majority of this may be resolved by tomorrow, however, we do expect that some of these situations may exist into the first of this coming week," Moczygemba said.
