HISD Cancels After-School Activities Due to Rain, Flooding

The Houston Independent School District has cancelled all after-school events Wednesday due to heavy rain and flooding that has struck the area today. Administrators will decide at a later date whether to reschedule specific activities.

An HISD release states:

HISD schools will conduct dismissal at their regular time today. Teachers and staff will be released once dismissal is completed.

Employees in the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center will be dismissed from work at 4 p.m.

HISD Superintendent Terry Grier's visit to Eastwood Academy in honor of the school's 2011 Blue Ribbon Award will be rescheduled.

Since the weather has mostly cleared out of the immediate area this afternoon, we imagine things should go back to normal tomorrow and kids can complain that the rain hit after classes were already in session.
