Dallas ISD maintenance and facilities staff work to restore schools
The frigid weather that recently covered the state in snow and historically low temperatures affected thousands of Dallas families and also caused damages to about 125 Dallas ISD schools. Staff from maintenance and facilities started work as soon as possible, worked over the weekend and the beginning of this week to ensure that students and staff were safe when they returned to campuses on Feb. 24. The damage to four schools—Bryan Adams and Lincoln high schools, Harold W. Lang Sr. Middle School, and J.P. Starks Math, Science and Technology Vanguard—was still being repaired this week so students and staff can return to the campuses on March 1. Dallas ISD is incredibly thankful to the outstanding maintenance and facility workers who have been tirelessly working around the clock at the schools to repair any damage caused by last week’s weather and deep freeze.
