School Closed Content Exchange

Two East Texas school districts have closed schools after seeing COVID-19 in students and facility members.

Bloomburg Independent School District and Waskom Elementary will be closed through Aug. 20.

The district and the schools plan to spend the week disinfecting and deep cleaning the buildings.

The schools will use banked days, so students will not have to make up for the missed days.
