Conroe ISD Superintendent Curtis Null provided an update in a live video, stating the district will be releasing students at the normal time.

"[In] an early release situation where we put kids on a bus early, we could be introducing kids to a dangerous situation before their parents are home," Null said.

In the decision-making process, Null said he had spoken to Montgomery County emergency management officials, and he took into account the potential for flooding that would impact students at home.

Meanwhile, amid scheduled testing, Texas Education Agency has allowed students who were scheduled to take the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness test to take the test on another day, Null said.

Parents are allowed to pick up their kids early, as absences will not be counted against the students, Null said.

As of the 11:30 a.m. update, no decision has been made for school closures on May 3.
