Today, after meeting with the engineers and the catastrophe management team, we learned we will also have to suspend operations at Floresville High School in the ROTC/Technology building. Unfortunately, this is a building we had planned on using when students return. In addition, we do not have enough time to logistically receive and set up the needed supplies and furniture to have the cam-pus ready for students by this Friday. It is for these reasons that we estimate classes will resume at FHS for a half day on Monday, November 9th. Student report time will be 8:30 am and buses will run on normal schedule in the morning.

All students will report to the FHS Competition Gym where a grab and go breakfast will be made available. Release time for FHS students will be at 12:30 pm; a grab and go lunch will be provided and buses will run at that time. Students may only park in front of the FHS Competition Gym closest to the fence next to Hwy 97. Stu-dent pick-up and drop-off will be at the FHS Competition Gym with entry and exit off of Hwy. 97.

The FHS main office and counseling center are now located in portables in the parking lot in front of the practice gym. Visitor parking is in the same parking lot but in front of the band hall.

We have confirmed with the Texas Education Agency that, as of today, knowing that FHS students will return next Monday, we WILL NOT have to make-up any of the days missed. A major factor in not having to make up the six days is that in the last legislative session, House Bill 2610 changed the requirement for student attendance from instructional days to instructional minutes. Floresville Middle School, Floresville South Elementary and Floresville North Elementary will also be exempt from making up the day missed on Friday, October 30.
