School Closed Another Day

The storm closures of Red River public schools is extended one more day.  Late Sunday afternoon School Superintendent Alison Hughes said a water shortage is behind them being unable to open Monday.

Hughes said, “Due to a final report from town officials that we will not have adequate water supply to all of our schools tomorrow, we have had to cancel classes for Monday, February 22. We know that officials and town workers have been working diligently to restore water, but with the limited supply, we are unable to return to classes on Monday.”

About the lost class time, Hughes said, “We are finalizing a plan to make up lost instructional time for all of our students.”  

Hughes added, “We will update all parents and staff by 4:00 Monday concerning school on Tuesday, February 23. Stay safe! And we appreciate your patience and understanding at this time. “

Classes will be held as usual this week at Riverdale Academy.  The school posted:  We are excited to report that we are able to have school tomorrow! Both the RA bus and the shuttle will run their regularly scheduled routes. We are looking forward to seeing all of our Rebels!

And Magnolia Bend Academy posted, “We will be meeting for classes tomorrow, Monday, February 22, 2021.”
