GARLAND, TexasGarland ISD students will not return this school year after Tuesday’s storms forced the district to cancel the remaining days of school.

Tuesday’s severe weather caused extensive damage across North Texas, especially in Garland, where thousands of people were without power.

The damage and power outages at Garland schools forced the district to cancel classes Tuesday and Wednesday.

Garland ISD announced it had made the decision to cancel classes for Thursday as well, ending the school year. No makeup days required.

Several schools closed and classes were postponed on Tuesday due to the severe weather

“Please know that this decision was not made lightly, and our primary concern remains the safety and well-being of our students, staff and community members,” the school district said. “The challenges posed by recent weather have made it impractical for campuses to continue school.”

Garland ISD says high school graduation plans and senior rehearsals will continue as planned. However, all other end-of-year celebrations have been canceled, including elementary through 11th grade graduations and awards ceremonies.

The district says schools will contact parents and students to schedule a time to pick up personal items or drop off equipment.

Garland ISD has set up a frequently asked questions page for parents and students.

School was also out on Monday for Memorial Day, making last Friday the unofficial last day of school for Garland ISD.
