Muliple school districts that canceled classes on Wednesday due to the ITC Deer Park fire will resume classes and activities on Thursday.

The following independent school districts will reopen on Thursday:

  • Channelview
  • Deer Park
  • Galena Park
  • La Porte
  • Pasadena 
  • Sheldon

San Jacinto College will also reopen on Thursday.
