Denton and Arlington ISD have canceled some classes for next week due to winter-damaged buildings.

This week's subfreezing weather and storms forced Dallas ISD to call off Friday's curbside meal distribution.

School districts are working again as the weather starts to warm up causing additional problems at many campuses.

Four of the biggest school districts are forced to make updates to their schedules now and into the weekend.

Giant dryers were called at the Harpool Middle School in Denton County Friday to help mitigate some of the severe water damage.

Denton ISD Superintendent Dr. Jamie Wilson said eight campuses, including Adkins and Nelson Elementary, sustained damage. All classes of these schools are canceled Monday and Tuesday.

Harpool Middle School got the worst of it. All students there will transition to online learning come Wednesday.

Dr. Wilson said, "What we're prepared to do is give our teachers two days to relocate to the upstairs classroom and then deliver remote instruction up until spring break,"

Dallas ISD has not announced its plan for classes next week yet, but the district did say curbside meal distribution that was canceled for Friday will be rescheduled for Monday. Location to be determined.
