Conroe ISD will close Aug. 26-27 due to the potential local effects of Hurricane Laura, the district announced Tuesday.

"To allow families time to prepare for and address any potential impact to our region from Hurricane Laura, all Conroe ISD campuses and offices will be closed on Wednesday, August 26 and Thursday, August 27," the district said in a statement.

In-person and remote classes scheduled over the two days were also canceled, as were district extracurricular activities. CISD plans to update the community on its plans for Aug. 28 after assessing the hurricane's effects on Thursday, the district said. More information will be shared through the district's mass communication system and on its website and social media pages.
