Schools: Dayton ISD Superintendent Dr. Jessica Johnson has announced that Dayton ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April 10 th in an effort to support the nation’s need to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. Closures through April 10th also include Liberty ISD and Cleveland ISD.  The Houston area continues to see an increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 and health officials report that this number is expected to continue to increase as more testing is made available. Dayton’s Dr. Johnson met with County Judge Jay Knight and LCOEMHS Coordinator Crista Beasley-Adams Tuesday morning. There have not been any confirmed cases in Liberty County. However, through an abundance of caution for all stakeholders, Dayton ISD has decided to announce the extension of normal district operations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. The President has publicly shared that the community should not gather in groups larger than 10 people. Again, Cleveland, Dayton and Liberty have all canceled classes through April 10th.

The Spring Event generates money to help support the TVE commitment to scholarships and has nothing to do with the TVE Fair and Rodeo held in October for 110 years. Mr. Lott said the TVE leadership wants to maintain a safe and healthy environment and so the decision was made to cancel the spring event only. The TVE will refund all money spent on tickets to the Spring Event. You can get a refund by calling the TVE office at (936) 336-7455.
