Three campuses to be relocated; parent information meeting is Sept. 7

TEXAS CITY – Due to flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, three La Marque schools are being relocated while damage is being repaired. The repairs at the La Marque primary, elementary and middle schools are not quick and easy restorations. Therefore, in order for school to resume this month, classrooms are going to have to be relocated.

A parent information meeting will be held on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 6 p.m. in the auditorium at La Marque High School. Any and all TCISD parents are welcome to attend to hear about the relocation of classrooms and transportation changes.

“We know that relocating classrooms is going to be a hardship for families and teachers,” said TCISD Superintendent Dr. Rodney Cavness. “However, we are working really hard so that students can be in school with their academic needs taken care of. This is not an easy fix but we are doing our best with what we have to take care of our students and staff.”

We do not have an estimated date from the contractors when repairs are done. “On initial view, we thought we could have all schools up and running by September 11,” said Dr. Cavness. “But as anyone knows who has experienced renovations and repairs, sometimes you find deeper issues once you start uncovering damage.”

The District does anticipate it to be a temporary relocation and all students will return to their home campus as soon as restoration is completed.
