Overton ISD students will not be attending class the next two days, Thursday (January 13) and Friday (January 14) due to the large number of absences being experienced by faculty and staff which has created issues with transportation, subs, and other areas of school operations.

Employees who are not quarantining will work the normal work day on both Thursday and Friday to prepare for a smooth return on Tuesday, January 18.

Because the closure is not related to the number of student cases, most high school extracurricular activities will continue as scheduled. Coaches and sponsors will be contacting their students with more details.

OISD acknowledges that this may create hardships for some families but there simply are not enough staff available in critical areas at this time.
