Killeen ISD cancels classes because of water issues

Local News

Killeen ISD announced Sunday afternoon that classes will be canceled through Wednesday, Feb. 24th, because of a lack of water.

The district says it cannot provide enough bottled water to support the 30,000+ students and employees who come to the school campuses every day.

KISD is preparing hundreds of pre-packaged meals at different campuses beginning Monday and will continue through the entire closure. You can pickup a meal between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and they will be free to all at these locations:

  • Cavazos Elementary
  • Cedar Valley Elementary
  • Early College High School (Fort Hood)
  • Harker Heights Elementary
  • Manor Middle School
  • Mountain View Elementary
  • Palo Alto Middle School
  • Rancier Middle School
  • Smith Middle School
  • Trimmier Elementary
  • West Ward Elementary

KISD hopes to reopen schools on Thursday, if the water supply allows.

Several other school districts have also canceled classes for Monday. You can find the full list here.
