Mansfield ISD made the same decision as Arlington: all offices were closed and in-person and virtual classes and all after-school activities were canceled on February 11th.
The closure means an extended “vacation” in Mansfield, as the academic calendar planned for the district to be closed to students and teachers on Friday February 12th and Monday February 15th.
After monitoring weather conditions all night, administrators of Burleson ISD announced on Twitter early Thursday that all schools would be closed. Cancellation occurs in offices, schools, virtual learning and on-campus learning.
Same decision as in the Garland Independent School District. The bad weather closure means all students, regardless of virtual or personal study options, and staff will have a snow day on Thursday.
