INGRAM, Texas - The Ingram Independent School District said due to a peak in student illnesses across the district, the district will be closed Friday.
District officials said during the closure, all buses and facilities will receive an intensive cleaning in preparation for students' return.
"The health, safety and well-being of our students, staff and their families is our primary concern," the district said in a Facebook post Thursday. "While we recognize that this closure may be an inconvenience to some families, this closure reflects our district’s commitment to the health and safety of our students and their families so that further spread of the illness does not continue."
Schools will reopen on Tuesday, following Monday's President's Day holiday closure.
District officials encouraged families to monitor the district's website and Facebook page for further information.
