Spurger ISD is closely monitoring the approaching weather in the Gulf of Mexico, and we will make decisions about a school delay or closing as more information becomes available.
Any time we are faced with decisions about delays or closures, those decisions are focused on the safety of our students and staff traveling to and from campus. We recognize that traveling to and from campus is a concern at times. Tropical Storm Harvey is expected to be a rain event for our area, which means that we may experience some flooding in lower parts of our community. We expect that our transportation services will be able to access the vast majority of the roads in our community, but also realize that several roads are prone to flooding. Transportation service will not be able to pick up or drop off on roads experiencing flooding.
Be safe – do not drive through standing water.
We are also aware that many of our parents work and must report to their jobs regardless of the weather conditions. Those parents rely on our campuses to be open. We plan to make every effort to remain open to serve the students of the community. As of this notice no deviation from our normal schedule is planned. Please continue to monitor the SISD website (www.spurgerisd.org), the campuses Facebook pages, the Emergency Information Alert System on “Remind”, and the local news outlets for changes to our normal schedule.
Thanks and be safe.
Kendall Smith, Superintendent
