Taft ISD has canceled school for the week of September 5-8.
The district will meet with their Disaster Recovery Group, engineers and insurance adjusters this afternoon to begin their assessment of the damage to the school district buildings.
The main goal is the safety of the students, Superintendent Joe Lopez said. Lopez says they will continue to keep the community updated once the damage assessment is complete. If you participate in extracurricular activities at the high school level (band, football, volleyball, etc) practices will resume on Tuesday, September 5. Coaches and directors are currently working on the practice times and locations. Lopez said their continued thoughts and prayers are with the community, staff, and Taft ISD families.
