School is cancelled for the remainder of this week. Feb. 16 - 19 there will be no school at Forsan ISD.
Wednesday February 17th, Coahoma ISD will continue a virtual learning environment. If circumstances prevent you from connecting with the school, CISD will continue to work with families affected. Lunch will be available for grab and go from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the cafeteria. Student and staff safety will remain the number one priority for CISD as this situation evolves. Stay safe and warm.
Big Spring ISD
Steer Nation: After consulting with Oncor on the continuous power outages across Big Spring, and attending a weather update zoom meeting from the National Weather Service out of Midland, we have decided in the best interest of our kids and staff to cancel school for Wednesday (February 17) and Thursday (February 18). We will re-evaluate the situation on Thursday evening before making a call for Friday. Once again, this decision does not come easy, but we must put safety above above all other factors, and at this time we believe this is the right call for the students and staff of BSISD.
We are being told the power outages may continue for several more days, and the weather forecast is very unfavorable for the next few days as well. We are setting a record in the Permian Basin with temperatures below freezing. (6 days and counting) We also have several campuses with power issues, and are hoping to avoid water issues with frozen pipes.
We again want the best for our families in Big Spring, and continue to hope and pray everyone is staying safe and warm as possible. Wit this is mind, we want all families to spend time together and not be concerned with trying to stay on top of virtual assignments. At this time we need to be more concerned with our safety and being there for each other. There will be no virtual assignments for the next two days, and we will look at the situation again on Thursday afternoon. Please stay safe, and please continue to pray for our kids, our community, and our school district.
