Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD closed until Sept. 5

By Cassie Gregory

Due to local flooding and poor road conditions, Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD will be closed and all extra-curricular activities cancelled until Tuesday, Sept. 5. This decision has been made for the safety of the students and community.

The COCISD Board of Trustees has opened the Jones campus as a shelter for people affected by the flood. This is not an official Red Cross shelter, but staff and accommodations are available for people in need. Anyone who needs to evacuate should contact emergency services. After they have been taken to a safe location, transportation to Jones will be arranged.
