Update: 4:25 p.m.: All Kilgore College instruction will occur remotely on Monday as the college gives the city of Kilgore’s water system additional time to fill and pressurize, spokesman Chris Craddock said.

Original Post: Kilgore ISD schools will be closed Monday, with no school and no remote learning, Kilgore ISD Superintendent Andy Baker said.

"Not only are we concerned about possible early Monday morning road challenges, our district staff members also need some additional time to assess any issues that may be present at our campuses and facilities following this week’s weather," Baker said in a note posted to the district's website this weekend.

Overton ISD, meanwhile, expects to be open Monday.

"We are past the precipitation part of this storm front and are moving into the recovery phase," Superintendent Stephen DuBose said in a statement. "As the snow melts, we anticipate finding additional issues beyond the two broken pipes and the one collapsed awning discovered so far. Our roofs, drives, and other infrastructure were in good shape prior to the storm and our hope is that we made it through with minimal long term damage.

"The buildings have been inspected several times during the closure and we will continue to look at every part of the campus to make sure we can safely serve students when we return.

"We still anticipate being on our regular schedule on Monday, but if issues arise that would delay that timeframe we will let everyone know as soon as possible," he said.

Leverett's Chapel ISD, Sabine ISD and West Rusk ISD have not posted announcements about Monday classes on their websites.
