EISD shuts schools
Ennis Independent School District announced on its website Wednesday evening that school will be closed for a third consecutive day as a result of freezing weather the past few days.
“Some parents and community members have inquired as to why Ennis ISD is closing for a third consecutive day on Thursday, Feb. 3. Due to uncertainty regarding the reliability of our electricity, we cannot guarantee that EISD schools can be adequately heated. Therefore, the decision was made to close schools again on Thursday. Thank you for your understanding regarding this issue, as we do recognize the importance of safe school operations. Please stay tuned for any further updates,” officials posted on the EISD web site Wednesday evening.
