Angelina County School Districts Extending Closure
According to a release from the Lufkin ISD, several Angelina County School districts (Central, Diboll, Hudson, Lufkin, and Zavalla) are announcing an extension of closure due to COVID-19 to April 17th. Huntington ISD has extended the campus closure to April 10th.
Lynn Torres, Superintendent of Lufkin ISD, said, " We feel that parents need longer blocks of time to plan for childcare and other services. Our hope is that we will be able to announce an opening of school sooner than that date. With the effects of the disease just hitting Angelina County, it is the safe and proactive decision to make. We will continue to monitor the situation daily and will keep the parents, students, and staff updated about any further decisions or actions."
