Fort Bend ISD to remain closed until Tuesday, September 5 (8/27/2017)

FORT BEND ISD (August 27, 2017) -- Due to widespread flooding and the continuing threat of more severe weather, Fort Bend ISD will remain closed for the remainder of the week. All campuses and facilities will reopen on Tuesday, September 5. All FBISD staff members and families are urged to continue monitoring local media and follow the advice of our emergency officials.

 

“As the largest employer in Fort Bend County, with over 10,000 staff members, we have many who have been significantly impacted by the storms and flooding,” said FBISD Superintendent Dr. Charles Dupre. “And with the rain and flooding forecasted to continue for another day or two, we know some will need time to return home after having evacuated, and others will be attending to damage that may have occurred at their home or homes of family members.”

 

As a reminder, please refer to the District’s website and social media accounts to get the latest information. A severe weather hotline is available to parents to learn about the latest information from the District regarding a severe weather occurrence. Please call (281) 634-4636 for information about schedule changes due to weather.
