Brownsville Independent School District Preparing for Classes Monday

BROWNSVILLE, Texas - Although Hurricane Harvey did not hit Brownsville, the city prepared for the worst. 

The Mayor and County declared a state of emergency, while schools were closed, including the Valley’s largest school district, Brownsville Independent School District.

Now that the city is in the clear, schools are opened and teachers are preparing for the first day of school Monday.

 “The teachers are coming in today, after our district decided safety was first Friday it was closed so we're back here and the teachers are preparing the room,” said Beatrice Hernandez, Perkins Middle School Principal.

“We’re preparing the campus to receive all of our students on Monday morning, and everybody else, the staff, is making sure the campus is clean and everybody is prepared.”
