BISD said this will allow “adequate time to clean and remediate all school campuses, complete the extensive cleaning at Central and Ozen high schools and ensure cafeterias are prepared with provisions to serve student meals.”

The district said transportation rules will run as scheduled, but “delays might occur.”

Students will also receive free lunch until Sept. 30.
