In an abundance of caution, La Porte ISD has canceled classes for Friday, March 22. The district is continuing to monitor conditions following the fire on Independence Parkway this week, and the decision to close school on Friday was made with the safety and other needs of our students, staff, and their families in mind. This will also allow our families time to adjust back to the regular routine after the events of the past few days. We have every expectation that school will be in session on Monday, March 25, on a regular schedule. Regardless, we will confirm with a callout to students and staff the afternoon of Sunday, March 24. This information also will be posted on our website, our mobile app and our Twitter account, @lpisd. Again, we are very thankful for the many first responders, emergency management personnel and other individuals who are working to keep our community safe.
Extracurricular activities scheduled for Friday and Saturday will continue as planned if they are NOT being held in La Porte ISD or other districts that will be closed. Please click on the headline for a list of changes and cancellations. (read more)
