Superintendent Sherri Bays of the Floresville Independent School District issued the following statement just after 8 p.m. Oct. 31:
After meeting with engineers today, we learned that repairs will need to be made -- not only to the 300 and 400 wings, but also to the library, theatre arts building, and the 100 and 200 wings -- before students can return. With this new information, we are now creating a plan to use every available space in the 800 wing, band hall, Tigers Den, and practice gyms to temporarily hold classes for what we hope will be a two week time period, until the repairs can be made.
At this time, considering the logistics of organizing the temporary move, we are currently predicting that all FHS staff will be asked to return to work on Wednesday, Nov. 4, and students will return on Thursday, Nov. 5. I apologize for any inconvenience but please know it is the result of making the safety of our students and staff a top priority. Engineers will continue to assess damages, which could result in revision to our timelines. Thank you for your patience.
