Schools remain closed amid damage at some campuses following flooding emergency

Many school districts and other campuses have cancelled classes and activities due to Harvey flooding and damage.

FULL LIST OF SCHOOL CLOSINGS


Dozens of schools across the area have had some kind of damage related to the flooding.

In Kingwood, the high school there will be unusable the entire school year.

Across HISD, superintendent Richard Carranza reported nearly every campus had some kind of damage.

All students in HISD in Texas will be eligible to receive three free meals per day at school as the state recovers from Harvey.

HISD on Wednesday announced the plan promising free meals on campus to 216,000 students during the 2017-2018 school year.

An HISD statement says federal and state agriculture departments have waived the usual required application process, part of the National School Lunch/Breakfast Program, to help with Harvey recovery.

Carranza says the waiver will give families one less concern as they begin the process of restoring their lives.

Thousands of people have been forced from their homes in Houston since Harvey struck, submerging the city with torrential rain.
