So far, Tarkington, Hardin, Splendora, Liberty, Cleveland and Dayton ISDs have made the determination to cancel school on Friday, May 10, due to the potential for extreme weather and flooding. Bluebonnet News will monitor information from Devers, Hull-Daisetta and Huffman ISDs and updates will be posted as they become available.

“We are expecting another round of severe weather to arrive in the Hardin area this afternoon. This weather system is forecast to drop anywhere from 5 to 12 inches of rain in the surrounding counties. We could experience some substantial rainfall on ground that is already saturated. As a result, there could be alterations with the school day on Friday. Jeff Linder will be conducting a conference call this evening at 6 pm with all Superintendents in our area to discuss the potential effects of this weather pattern. We will then communicate with the Hardin ISD community at approximately 8 pm all updated information. Please monitor all Hardin ISD social media sites as well as local news outlets for any alterations in the school day for Friday May 10.”
