Updated Feb. 18.

Grapevine-Colleyville ISD announced Feb. 17 that the district would provide curbside meals for students Feb. 19 at Grapevine Elementary School and Grapevine and Cross Timbers middle schools, 4-5 p.m.

Original story:

Grapevine-Colleyville ISD announced Feb. 16 that the district would cancel in-person and remote classes, activities and practices for the rest of the week.

In addition to facing power outages and extreme weather like the rest of Texas, GCISD announced on social media Feb. 15 that its internet provider, ESC Region 11, had gone offline, meaning district officials did not have access to online services for schoolwork and administration.


The district also announced Feb. 15 that the JPS school-based health clinic at 3050 Timberline Drive, which provides primary care health services to district families, would be closed through Feb. 19. In the Feb. 16 update, the district reported that it would have to suspend its curbside meal program through the rest of the week as well due to hazardous travel conditions.

“We understand that many families rely on this service and we will continue to monitor weather conditions, and if we are able to provide meals on a makeup date, we will notify families as soon as possible,” the district said in the statement.
