Though temperatures around Austin are slowly warming Feb. 2 following several days of below-freezing weather, Austin ISD announced it will cancel classes Feb. 3.

"Many of our campuses remain unsafe, and thousands of our staff and families are still without power," AISD Media Relations Specialist Nayeli Santoyo said in a press release Feb. 2.

As of the morning of Feb. 2, around 20 campuses had no power, and many roads to schools were impassable because of dangerous downed trees that need to be cleared, Santoyo said.

Other factors the district considered to make the decision include the availability of food for school breakfasts and lunches, power lines blocking some school entrances, and the availability of internet at schools.

Santoyo said campus staff will continue to address the issues at schools, and the district hopes to reopen Monday, Feb. 6.

As far as makeup days go, Santoyo said the district planned for two bad-weather days, which will cover Tuesday and Wednesday.

"We will join many other Central Texas districts in requesting a waiver from the Texas Education Agency for the closures on Thursday and Friday," Santoyo said. "If the waiver is approved, no planned holidays will need to be used to make up this time."
