School districts are going to make a determination about whether to close schools due to Tropical Storm Imelda.
Susan Passmore, Goose Creek CISD spokeswoman, issued a statement about the possibility of schools closing today.
“Due to the perpetual bands of torrential downpours coming in off the Gulf and the reported tornadic activity, Goose Creek CISD will not make an early prediction on school operations for tomorrow,” Passmore said in a statement sent Wednesday. “We will continue to monitor the weather throughout the night and likely make another early morning decision with the safety of our students and staff in mind. While we plan to send a callout by 6 a.m., information also will be available through social media, emails, texts, the Goose Creek CISD website and Houston television stations. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
Jami Navarre, Barbers Hill ISD spokeswoman, said they are in communication with city and county officials about the bad weather and will send out notices on their webpage and social media sites about staying open or closing.
“We also have our own operations team that drives the actual roads, so that way they can make sure it is safe for the buses and transportation,” Navarre said.
