Opening Day of area schools: Barbers Hill ISD will open school with both virtual and face-to-face instruction on August 19th. Winnie ISD starts school in their East Chambers Schools with both virtual and face to face instruction August 17th.  Parents are receiving a survey to inform the East Chambers schools as to what a child’s parent prefers they sign up for. The Winnie district is asking parents to keep their kids in whatever choice they make for at least 3 weeks.  The option of virtual or face-to-face will be repeated to them every 3 weeks until it is determined when face-to-face only will commence. In the Anahuac ISD, also in Chambers County, schools open with both virtual and face-to-face instruction. That begins August 13th.   As a matter of fact, registration in Anahuac is going on this week, and parents should choose which method of instruction they want for their children. Anahuac ISD parents are asked that once a choice is made, to please keep that commitment for 6 weeks. Back to Liberty County, Devers ISD Classes begin on August 10th. Instruction will be offered both virtually and face-to-face. Tarkington ISD classes start August 8th, with both face-to-face and virtual instruction. However, the Tarkington schools are still working on the logistics of how parents choose which method is desired for their children

Extended Early Voting: Now approaching the November 3rd, general election Texas Governor Greg Abbott has extended the early voting period by 6 more days.  This means early voting which was 12 days is now 18.  Early voting begins October 13th but with this change will continue  until October 30th. The designated election day is November 3rd. The reason for this extension, not surprisingly, is brought on by the coronavirus. According to Liberty Co. Elections Administrator, Chief Deputy, Melanie Croker, there will be four locations in the county where early voting will be in operation. One each in Liberty, Dayton, Hardin and Cleveland. Ms. Crocker also said for the November 3rd general election day, there will be at least 20 voting precinct boxes where voters can cast votes. Throughout the state, early voting is being encouraged this year to help avoid crowds at some polling places to help maintain social distancing and avoid the other effects of coronavirus.  Again, Governor Greg Abbott has extended the early voting period in Texas to a total of 18 days this year.  Early voting begins October 13th running through October 30th. The official election day is November 3rd. ***************************************************************
