La Villa ISD closing campuses to sanitize facilities
Citing an increase in COVID-19 cases across all grade levels, La Villa ISD announced all campuses will close for the rest of the week.
In a letter sent to parents, district Superintendent Robert Munoz Jr. said the closures will allow all district facilities to be thoroughly disinfected and sanitized.
The campuses will close Thursday, Jan. 13, and Friday, Jan. 14. The school will reopen Monday, Jan. 17.
"We think we're the best place for our kids to be at, but because of this new variant — it's kind of hard to judge where we're at," Munoz said. "With a lack of testing in the county, here in the Valley, we're trying to figure out what's best for us. We're going to try these two days first and see where we're at."
Meal distribution will continue curbside at La villa Middle School from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on those days.
The district also announced they will host a vaccine clinic on Tuesday, Jan. 12, at the multipurpose center from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
