Most Schools Remain Closed Monday

Most school districts will remain closed on Monday. Several schools are being used as shelters for evacuees.

Lufkin Superintendent Roy Knight says they are trying to consolidate those shelters. Then, they will begin preparing them for classes to resume. He's hopeful that Lufkin will be back in school by Wednesday.

The other big concern is getting some much needed rest for the school staff. "We litter ally have been beyond capacity, and yet, our people have been up to 72 hours without a drop of sleep." Knight says another big concern is getting compensation for the school district from the state and federal government to help them recover the extra expenses from Rita.
