Original post 3:50 p.m. March 1:

The winter storm threw a wrench into student learning plans for much of southeast Texas, and the problems are continuing to impact some students a full two weeks later.

Houston ISD canceled classes for students the week of the storm through Feb. 23. Students logged in for some virtual lessons Feb. 24.

The school district announced March 1 that because of ongoing necessary repairs, several HISD campuses remain closed. Virtual instruction is being offered March 1-3 for those campuses.

The campuses impacted are scheduled to reopen for face-to-face instruction March 4. However, if facility repairs are made sooner, officials said campuses that are ready will open for face-to-face instruction, and parents and students will be notified by the school principal.
