The district announced it would reopen campuses to in-person teaching and resume remote learning Feb. 22, including in buildings where active repairs continue.
“Many LISD campuses sustained various levels of damage, but thanks to our outstanding teams, campuses will resume normal operations,” the district said in a Feb. 20 statement. “Students may notice some areas under repair, but this does not impact safety or learning.”
At least three schools suffered damage to heating systems that prompted district administrators to ask students to bring extra layers of clothing. The affected schools include Killian Middle School, the Lewisville High School Killough Campus and the Technology, Exploration & Career Center East.
“We hope to have the situations resolved before Monday, but encourage students to be prepared,” the district said.
The district shut down operations at all schools Feb. 15 as snowfall blanketed roads and plummeting temperatures threatened the stability of the state’s electric grid. The weather event led to extended power outages for many residents, business closures, and damage to water pipes and other infrastructure throughout the state.
