"We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution given the size of our district, the possibility of some portions experiencing flash flooding and hazardous road conditions, and the fact the district has a significant bus driver shortage necessitating early afternoon routes to transport students home before conditions worsen," FBISD said in the release.
The Sugar Land area could receive 6-12 inches of rain from Sept. 13-15, according a news release from the city.

All after school activities are canceled Sept. 13, and the board of trustees meeting scheduled for Sept. 13 has also been canceled. The board of trustees is expected to meet Sept. 16 for a special called meeting and the appointment of the new superintendent, Christie Whitbeck.
