While the district does have electricity running in most of its facilities, there are issues with phone and internet services.

The district plans to have school on Friday if possible, but no final decision has been made about Friday at this time. The goal with opening schools is to make sure students have access to facilities that have air conditioning and access to meals.

All events and activities, including practices, will continue to be suspended until phones are operational.
