After our 10am briefing with the Wharton Emergency Department and our conference call with the National Weather Service representative for the coastal bend area, we feel it is necessary to close school for Friday, August 25th. Additionally, all extra-curricular activities are cancelled from Friday 8/25-Sunday 8/27. Our student's safety as well as the necessary time staff and families need to prepare for this type of storm take top priority.
We will be actively monitoring this storm and river levels throughout the weekend. Changes, if any, regarding next week's school operations will be posted on the EBISD website, EBISD Facebook page, EBISD Newsfeed, KULP Radio, and Channel 2 News. Additionally, EBISD staff will be contacted through email, campus phone trees, or EBISD District Communication Remind.
Thank you for understanding and please be safe throughout the weekend!
--Courtney Hudgins, Superintendent
