Tuesday, March 17, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Austin Independent School District announced Monday that schools will remain closed at least through April 3 over public health concerns about COVID-19. Superintendent Paul Cruz explained that the district will continue to provide food for families that participate in free- and reduced-price lunch programs. The programs will continue at 28 buildings across the city beginning March 23. With Monday’s announcement, AISD joins a host of school districts that have closed through the end of the month. KUT has the full list.
