Kilgore ISD will be switching to remote learning for the rest of the week, Superintendent Andy Baker said Wednesday.

"KISD understands that many of our students may be experiencing any number of challenges during this weather that may limit their ability to complete all of their assignments," Baker said in a notice. "We ask that our students do all they can, but please know that the safety and well being of our students is our main concern, especially during this time of inclement weather."

Overton ISD also said it would go remote learning for the rest of the week.

"Overton ISD's students will be going to online learning for the remainder of this week," Superintendent Stephen DuBose said. "The campuses will be open to in-person learning beginning on Monday, February 22 at the regular time."

Kilgore College will also be remote for the rest of the week.

"With additional freezing precipitation coming tomorrow and low temperatures falling back into the single digits on Friday morning, it does not appear that we can reopen safely prior to the expected thaw on Saturday afternoon," spokesman Chris Craddock said.

Sabine ISD, Leverett's Chapel ISD and West Rusk ISD are not holding in-person classes through Thursday. No announcement on Friday had been made by mid-day Wednesday.
